Find your threat before it finds you

Residential Security Handbook 2021: Smart Estate Living Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection

To be successful, threats require two things, surprise and manoeuvre. Pathfinder eliminates both by taking you inside your threat, revealing its operations, patterns and likely intent, allowing you to respond more deliberately and effectively and reduce your likelihood for loss.

The Pathfinder advanced intrusion detection system is the next generation of ARA’s Expendable Unattended Ground Sensor (E-UGS) system. Pathfinder incorporates lessons learned by the US military and is specifically optimised for defence, border security, critical infrastructure, and consumer applications.

One step ahead of your threats

Gain greater awareness of multiple threat activities and behaviours with the Pathfinder system. Pathfinder is the premier footstep and vehicle detection system designed for both the commercial and military markets.

It provides an expendable, affordable, actionable, and undetectable early warning capability allowing the operator to ‘find the path’, inferring movement patterns, routes, key locations and likely intent. The power of Pathfinder is that it accomplishes all this before the threat can cause damage or inflict harm.

The technology and advancements in Pathfinder stem from seven years of United States military feedback on ARA’s original seismic sensor system. With over 48 000 units delivered around the globe, its sensors continue to be employed by soldiers in numerous regions today.

Why it works

Pathfinder provides what other sensors can’t by allowing users to intervene against threats at the most opportune moment, making it appear as ‘chance contact’. Detailed activity monitoring lets users easily keep the threat’s tactics, techniques and procedures intact, while giving no indication that his activities have been compromised.

Where Pathfinder makes an impact:

• Border security.

• Critical infrastructure protection.

• Refugee migration.

• Livestock/timber theft.

• Counter trafficking/narcotics/terrorism.

• Search and rescue.

• Military operations.

• Anti-poaching.

• Vandalism and theft.

• Pipeline and well security.

• Prison perimeters.
