NYPA Installs Perimeter Area Security Monitoring System

Seismic-Acoustic Sensing Technology will Enhance Security; Helps Realize Governor Cuomo’s Goal for More Resilient Energy System The New York Power Authority (NYPA) today announced plans to use a $65,000 research grant to install an innovative perimeter area security monitoring system that will demonstrate the use of underground sensors to strengthen existing security and provide monitoring beyond physical perimeter fencing. This technology helps advance Governor Cuomo’s Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) strategy to build a more resilient, as well as cleaner and more affordable, energy system for all New Yorkers. “This is cutting-edge technology that uses underground sensors to detect seismic or…

Evolution of Seismic Sensing for Security and Surveillance Applications

Quantum Technology Sciences President Mark Tinker, PhD gave a technical presentation on The Evolution of Seismic Sensing for Security and Surveillance Applications during ASIS 2013 in Chicago. The presentation addressed whether monitoring the earth for earthquake and natural hazards or nuclear explosions, operational seismic data centers help keep us safe. At local scales, far more sophisticated than everyday geophone-associated techniques or simple fiber optics, today’s sensors and algorithmic analysis capabilities enable tactical seismic monitoring to truly be voice recognition for the earth, providing the “ears” to complement, augment, and sometimes replace the security and surveillance “eyes” provided by radars, cameras,…
