Remote monitoring benefits

October 2018 Mining (Industry), Surveillance

Security in the mining sector is having to evolve as criminals get smarter and more brazen in their tactics. Traditional security measures used on these large, often isolated pieces of land are no longer effective. Verifier is branching out into the mining space, sourcing and integrating multiple solutions so that we can monitor them in order to optimise perimeter protection and threat detection on site.

Licence plate recognition (LPR) technology is used along roadsides and at access points to facilities in order to alert security personnel on the ground of an approaching threat. The plate is run against a national suspect database, which is populated with intelligence information from various sources across the country. This forewarning enables personnel to mobilise before the threat breaches the perimeter and if need be, additional resources can be operationalised and deployed.

Thermal, laser or infrared camera technology, using an artificial intelligence (AI) engine on the backend, will assist in the deep learning and classification of the threat before it breaches the perimeter. Alongside this, the use of existing analytics for cross-line detection can be coupled with AI for a double-knock effect.

Radar technology has been around for years, however on mines, where there is a lot of dust and particle movement in the air, the radar technology can have misses or many nuisance alarms. By using S-Band radar technology, these issues are no longer apparent.

S-Band is able to look between trees for objects, and then classify them into human, vehicle, animal or aircraft categories. This used in conjunction with fixed and PTZ camera technology, enables controllers to verify the threat visually before deploying reaction teams.

Co-ordination with internal and external reaction teams ensures that on the ground teams are not wasting precious time searching for the threat. Taking monitoring off-site reduces the cost of infrastructure and additional manpower for the client in terms of control room costs and training.

Off-site monitoring and independent deployment of reaction teams dramatically reduces the risk of collusion between criminals and security personnel onsite. Independent virtual guarding assists management in keeping an eye on on-site security, ensuring personnel are alert at all times and reducing the risk of human error.

For sites where, on-site control rooms are necessary, we often take the high priority work off-site to ensure that the client is receiving transparent reporting and feed-back from their site.
