PrismaHedge, Prisma’s next-generation smart monitoring solution, uses its patented Hyper-Scan Fiber-Sensing™ technology enabling ultra-sensitive and intelligent-learning detection to provide real-time intelligence and uniquely reliable intrusion protection at the perimeter.
The solution lowers deployment costs by using standard, pre-deployed fiber-optic cables (including cables that were installed within a conduit). These fiber-optic cables, which are part of most modern infrastructures, operate as the system’s “sensors” and enable PrismaHedge to monitor and detect movement at the perimeter at remote locations, providing security for up to 100 km per PrismaHedge unit or 200 km per dual-unit.
PrismaHedge strengthens perimeter security and provides alerts regarding safety issues and intrusion detection in real time. It identifies the acoustic signature of each event at or near the perimeter, at a resolution that allows classification of the events and identification of their location – with unprecedented accuracy – as it dramatically reduces the “noise” of false positive and negative alarms.
Within a distance from the perimeter that you pre-define, PrismaHedge allows smarter, faster perimeter management and prevents suspicious activity by flagging for classification a range of events that can include:
Systems involving thousands of sensors along the perimeter are expensive for deployment, operation, and maintenance. The alternative is fiber sensing – using very long fibers as sensors – which is probably the most cost-effective solution. But until PrismaHedge, existing solutions were ineffective due to high false alarm rates, poor target classification, and limited ability to use as “sensors” the optical communication fiber cables that were already installed.
PrismaHedge solves all of all these issues thanks to its revolutionary Hyper-Scan technology, which offers 100x sensitivity improvement.
PrismaHedge has raw data of unparalleled quality. We apply Big Data techniques to data sets that are several orders of magnitude wider, with significantly higher SNR (signal-to-noise ratio) levels – leading to very high detection probability and advanced target classification.
Upgrades to the system are software based and can be installed remotely.
Key Features & Benefits
The first-generation fiber-sensing technologies which are currently available suffer from poor performance – generating a high rate of false alarms and leading to poor target classification. In addition, their range is limited, and this creates a challenging business case for long infrastructure. Prisma’s solution solves all of all these issues, thanks to its revolutionary HYPERSCAN technology, which provides over 100 times the sensitivity of other technologies.
