  • PureActiv integrates with a vast array of short- and long-range perimeter sensors such as radar, buried or on-fence fiber detection systems, and ground sensors either singularly or combining them to provide just the right level of protection to cost effectively meet the most secure perimeter requirements.

  • Many times, the right detection solution is not a single sensor technology.

  • In addition to its AI Video Analytics, PureActiv integrates with other perimeter sensors such as radar, buried or on-fence fiber detection systems, and ground sensors either singularly or combining them to provide just the right level of protection to cost effectively meet your perimeter requirements.

  • Additionally, given the extensible open-architecture approach, additional sensors can be added when needed or budgets permit.

  • The right sensors are easily integrated to ensure a perfect fit to your needs so your organization is not wasting money on too much or too little capability.

PureTech Systems (Second of Five)

Best Long Range Surveillance

  • PureActiv for Borders

  • Controlling national borders is an important part of national security, and the ability to effectively monitor vast areas in varied weather conditions and terrain, while accurately identifying potential threats at great distances is a complicated scenario.

  • The solution calls for knowledgeable personnel and accurate sensors that work together to quickly assess a situation and enable border agents to effectively intervene.​

  • PureActiv® uses geo-spatial (GIS map-based) map technology to display camera, radar, and other sensors locations and their field-of-views, alarm events, and target tracks.

  • In addition to live and recorded video and live radar tracks, the user interface includes map tools such as the ability to add and share place-markers, point-and-click on the map to steer cameras to geolocations, fire laser range finders, range-to-target indicator, and a distance measuring tool.

  • This combination of real-time data on a map-based interface, provides the user a high level of situational awareness, which aides them in effective interdiction.

  • PureActiv boasts of some of the longest detection ranges in the industry (over 5 miles), which reduces system infrastructure; thereby lowering total cost of ownership.

  • Combining of tracks from multiple radars and PureActiv AI Video Analytics, eliminates duplicate tracks on the GIS map and alarms from the same intrusion events; reducing clutter and improving situational awareness.

  • Similarly, PureActiv Auto-verify™ feature ensures only detections that are AI verified as targets of interest are alarmed upon, eliminating up to 95% of nuisance alarms.

  • Additionally PureActiv integrates with GPS for blue force (friend/foe) classification and tracking to aid interdictions. This extensible solution enables organizations to start small and expand the system capabilities as time and budgets permit making PureTech a trusted leader in the security of the most critical perimeters and borders.

PureTech Systems (Third of Five)

Best Machine Learning and AI Solution

  • PureActiv

  • PureTech Systems patented Video Analytics are AI Deep Learning and Geo-spatially boosted providing the highest probability of detection with the lowest nuisance alarm rate for electronically securing perimeters around facilities, infrastructures, and country borders.

  • PureActiv AI analytics also provides false alarm filtering for central monitoring stations; reducing false alarms by as much as 95%.
