Critical infrastructure defense systems

 

The networks and systems that make up the infrastructure of a society are often taken for granted. However, a disruption to one of those systems can have serious consequences on other systems as well. For example, an attack on a gas pipeline will initially affect the supply of gas, which will then lead to a decrease in the generation of electric power and further on to the shutdown of computerized controls and communication systems, road, air and rail traffic control, etc. This domino effect would be even greater, were one of those critical systems attacked by an aggressive computer virus.  

 

Defensive Shield specializes in tailor-made solutions for the protection of critical infrastructures.

 

Whether vulnerable to physical or cyber attack, Defensive will identify the vulnerabilities of your key systems and sites, draw up a plan of defense, and train your forces to carry it out. Oil rigs, power plants, water and gas pipelines, government institutions and maritime fleets can now be protected using Defensive Shield's cutting edge technology and unique methods of defense.

 

PIDS - Defensive Shield offers a wide selection of perimeter intrusion systems (PIDS) for the protection of private and public facilities, such as airports, critical installations, oil rigs, harbors, borders, correctional facilities, pipelines, etc.  Our PIDS solutions utilize a myriad of fence and barrier protection technologies, including electro-optic sensors, vibration sensors, IR and microwave sensors, as well as reflected wave technology and underground seismic detection.  Combined with electronic control units, they offer complete intruder detection and alert solutions.  

 

C4ISR (Command, Control, Computers and Communications; Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) – Defensive's C4ISR solutions comprise a network of electro-optic and acoustic sensors that detect illicit activity.  The collected data is transmitted via superior communication systems to a central command and control post, where it can be analyzed and acted upon quickly and efficiently.

 

Cyber Protection – Defensive Shield will help you maintain a safe and secure cyber environment with a full range of hardware and software solutions. Geared towards governments, militaries and key infrastructure security teams, our cyber protection products are designed to intercept, monitor and track digital information from mobile phones, laptops and desktop computers.

 

Transportation Protection - Defensive offers comprehensive solutions for protecting varied forms of transportation: ships, trains, vehicle convoys, and aircraft against piracy and terrorism.

Border  Control and Port Protection

 

 Defensive Shield aids federal authorities in monitoring and controlling the lawful and unlawful movement of goods, substances and people across borders or into ports by sharing its vast knowledge of field intelligence combined with ultra modern screening and detection technologies.

 

Biometric Access Control SystemsThe VIA©, Defensive Shield's integrated solution for secure, yet efficient entry and exit utilizes sophisticated software which verifies and authenticates one's identity. The system automatically coordinates between biometric identification devices, such as fingerprint and eye scanners and the VIA© smartcard, which contains each holder's unique biometric and demographic data. The mVia©, or mobile version of our verification, identification and authentication system takes advantage of smart phone technology to enable quick and secure access at border crossings,  mega events, large facilities and correctional institutions.  Read more about the mVIA©

 

Observation SystemsWe offer comprehensive observation solutions, which are easy to install on any type of patrol vehicle or stationary platform. These solutions may include: electro-optic day/night cameras as well as a communications data links and remote-operated consoles. Our observation systems for fences and walls may include acoustic sensors in addition to all of the above components. Additionally, Defensive supplies satellite-based Earth imagery systems used for homeland security and defense intelligence gathering missions.

 

Inspection and Scanning Systems- Defensive Shield offers a remarkable solution for the nonintrusive inspection of cargo transports, which  provides the ability to detect infiltrators, weapons, radioactive and explosive materials. Our system is the lightest and most versatile mobile gamma scanner available on the market today. With the ability to scan a vehicle's contents and as well as its underside, the system is operated by a single individual from a remotely controlled console; eliminating the risk of accidental irradiation to any personnel.  

 

For under-vehicle inspection we recommend a system that is situated underneath a stationary vehicle, which transmits high resolution, color video images at multiple angles. It is remotely operated from a control station at a safe distance from the inspected vehicle.  Detecting explosives, narcotics, illegal goods, and individuals, this solution is perfect for monitoring the secure access and exit at border checkpoints, critical installations, correctional facilities, public events and government offices. Defensive also offers personal scanning equipment as well as baggage scanning machines.  

 

In addition, we offer our expertise in training border and port personnel to conduct proper security inspections and background interviews. If required, we will supply professional human resources to carry out security inspections and scanning tasks.

 

Surface and Underwater Protection - Utilizing advanced acoustic and unmanned technologies, Defensive Shield provides full port and maritime protection. The solutions we offer are able to detect illicit activity, such as the placement of mines and the remains of explosives; on the surface as well as under the water.  

 

One of those solutions is an active acoustic sonar system based on a line of moored buoys, which creates an underwater fence; enabling a high frequency search system.  The buoys are connected via cable to a display and alert system situated in an on-shore command post.  

 

In addition, Defense offers an extremely versatile and effective solution for port, ship and oil rig protection.  

 

Our unmanned surface vehicle (USV) is remotely operated from land or from any manned platform without exposing personnel and vital assets to unnecessary risk.  With the capability of using various mission modules and of hosting sophisticated subsystems (cameras, communication links, sensors, weapons, etc.), it can be used for anti-terror and port security, as well as intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) missions.
