Alarmed Culvert Denial Systems Confirms Culvert (Pipe) Is Secure from IEDs
LightLOC’s alarmed SmartGrates are a proven security grates technology (or trash racks) for culverts, culvert-covers, pipes and other unattended openings essential for the prevention of Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) used in combat zones. Tested by Sandia, SmartGrates have been installed at nuclear power sites and DOD bases in the USA and overseas. Recent attacks by insurgents in Afghanistan have included the use of culverts under roads and embankments to conceal IEDs and other bulk explosive devices that have harmed and killed armed forces. LightLOC SmartGrate alarmed culvert denial system prevents the success of these insurgents via a silent alarm notifying appropriate personnel that an intrusion has occurred. What makes these SmartGrates so effective is their insensitivity to vibration and the surrounding environment – the alarm will trigger ONLY when the grate is cut or bent significantly. Years of service records prove that SmartGrates have the lowest false alarm rate in the industry. As an anti-IED system, LightLOC SmartGrates provides advanced and superior intrusion detection through the use of fiber optic nerve fibers embedded within the grating. Fiber optics do not require any local power and can be located as far as 25km from the optical alarm processor (LightLOC Express).LightLOC SmartGrates are expertly engineered to supply the highest level of uncompromised roadside security for our armed forces at home and overseas and are equipped for immediate deployment.
