MicroTrack, the latest addition to Southwest Microwave’s INTREPID™ family of intrusion detection products, is a new buried cable intrusion detection system for applications where cover t perimeter protection is essential. MicroTrack is a volumetric, terrain-following sensor that reliably detects and precisely locates walking, running or crawling intruders along a facility’s perimeter.

With a coverage range of 400 meters (1312 ft) per processor, the MicroTrack system consists of a MicroTrack processor unit and two 200-meter sensor cable pairs that may be buried along a facility’s perimeter in soil, asphalt or concrete. A detection field is created around each pair of sensor cables, enabling the detection of intrusions.

MicroTrack is the first buried cable sensor designed to fully adapt to its installed environment, setting new standards for per formance by providing cover t, terrainfollowing detection that is uniform along a site’s perimeter. MicroTrack pinpoints the location of perimeter disturbances using a target’s spatial and time signatures to discriminate legitimate intrusions from harmless disturbances caused by small animals or environmental factors such as wind, rain or snow. The system’s high signal-to-noise ratio and precise target location produce superior probability of detection and a ver y low false/nuisance alarm rate (FAR/NAR).

With MicroTrack, detection zones are set in software. As such, zoning can be cost-effectively tailored to suit a site’s unique requirements. MicroTrack also features a built-in communications system that inter faces with INTREPID set-up and monitoring software, ensuring user-friendly installation, system administration and diagnostics
