MARSS to manage RADiRguard integration

MARSS will deliver and commission up to 40 of its RADiRguard high security surveillance units for a critical infrastructure site in the Middle East, as part of a contract valued at $5.5 million.

This latest phase builds on a multiyear programme delivered by MARSS since 2018 at the same site. Working as the scheme’s primary contractor and technology partner, MARSS will manage the integration of up to 40 new RADiRguard units with existing MARSS systems and other legacy sensors, alongside its NiDAR platform, to provide unparalleled 24/7 autonomous monitoring, detection, tracking and decision support in the event of a security incident.

The site’s security area will also be expanded under the project, with the latest RADiRguard units providing enhanced coverage and protection of the wider perimeter. There will also be an upgrade to the existing control room, accompanied by plans that ensure business continuity.
 
The installation phase, scheduled for 2024, followed a year of designing and refining the project to meet the latest set of requirements, including a need for flexibility, scalability, adaptability and efficiency.
 
Fully integrated with MARRS’ sensor-agnostic NiDAR platform, this system will significantly reduce the burden on operators by consolidating all sensor data onto a single screen. This streamlined approach would allow a single security member to effectively monitor the entire system, as well as coordinate any response to potential threats.

RADiRguard will provide surface detection, identification and classification of land-based threats across multiple site zones. The flexibility of the NiDAR suite means it can also suggest or automate responses based on the sensitivity of different areas.
 
Speaking of the technology, Fahad Alayadhi, MARSS Senior Project Manager, commented: "RADiRguard provides an invisible fence. Anything entering this site will be detected, identified and classified in real time by MARSS’ NiDAR platform. This allows the operator to choose the most appropriate response, with NiDAR even able to recommend the best recourse for the detected threat."
 
MARSS’ regional team has been – and will continue to be – a hands-on, flexible and adaptable source of support throughout the project’s lifecycle. The team has navigated specific site challenges – such as limited working hours – and has helped the customer overcome specific challenges, sourcing and delivering additional RADiRguard units at short notice.
 
Fahad added: "The project has been made possible because of the passion of the MARSS team from its regional headquarters in the KSA. No other organisation is able to deliver and commission security solutions, at the speed and quality needed, to protect critical sites, bases and borders from persistent, ever-evolving threats.”
