Oil refinery security requires state of the art perimeter safety and airspace defense against hostile or rogue drone threats. Terrorists and other opportunists pose a significant threat to refinery infrastructure. Disruption of service to any of these facilities could have a catastrophic national impact.
Advanced security threat and intrusion detection systems are standard components for ground protection and safety, but airspace intrusion detection and alerting against drones is an unprotected vulnerability for refineries.
Comprehensive airspace security solutions for refineries require various components, including air-surveillance, detection, monitoring, classification, and tracking. Security systems also need the capability of detecting the smallest of drones well before a perimeter breach.
Refineries are considered high-value terrorist targets, they are vital to the economy, usually built on flat terrain with open space surrounding the perimeter. Refineries need to protect upstream components, process units, downstream components, and product storage.
Fortem's SkyDome solution, is an airspace intrusion detection security as a service (SaaS), providing refineries and critical infrastructure, intelligent awareness. Fortem’s SkyDome software platform provides real-time alerting, monitoring, and predictive analytics for data-driven decisions. It includes a rules-based reporting engine with sensor fusion for data aggregation.
SkyDome uses TrueView’s AI-enabled detection and classification solution to provide a complete view of local airspace. When an airspace intruder is detected, SkyDome’s Command Center can provision appropriate response options depending on threat level.
Fortem’s TrueView radar can alert refinery security personnel of an approaching UAV up to 1,000 meters away, allowing them to take appropriate mitigation or remediation action as needed.
