CNL’s partnership with Shield Safety and Security enhances Middle East region specialist’s security services

CNL, a developer of physical security information management software, has unveiled a partnership with Shield Safety and Security, the military and police supply division of Bin Salem Holdings, an Emirati owned group based in Abu Dhabi, which serves the needs of government, security and industrial corporations within the Middle East region.

CNL's solutions include its IPSecurityCenter system, which is reported to deliver integrated systems management that is transparent to the end user, along with a single view of events and incidents via customised role-specific graphical user interfaces and 'dashboards'. It's also said to provide process-driven event management (via graphical workflow tools, response plans and a customised alarm stack design), along with analysis, status and management information.

GPS Standard debuts Miles pipeline protection system
Exclusively previewed at the Intersec show in Dubai last month, Italian perimeter protection specialist GPS Standard has launched its new Miles system, designed to safeguard pipes and pipelines. Based on the use of fibre optic technology, Miles' development was derived from the specific requirements of Middle East users requiring security measures for oil extraction facilities, as well as the challenging need to protect pipelines over extended distances.
GPS Standard says Miles can effectively secure oil and gas pipelines at distances up to 50km because it uses fibre optic cable that's immune to electromagnetic disturbances and atmospheric interference, while the system does not require power out in the field.
Operationally, Miles works via fibre optic cable installed above the pipe to be protected, either visible or buried. Existing fibre optic cabling can be utilised and the system's reported accuracy is linked to its spectral analysis of the signal. In practical terms, this translates into immunity to atmospheric effects such as rain, snow and hail, along with a low false alarm rate caused by factors including wind or ground vibrations, GPS Standard notes.
Explaining further, the company adds that a mechanical disturbance in the fibre optic cable, caused for example by pressure, vibration or movement, changes the light transmission characteristics within the cable, to trigger an event alarm. Accurate analysis of the signal, with the ability to adjust the parameters controlling the system's operation using commissioning and monitoring software, is said to contribute towards its effectiveness.
The net result of the R&D effort put into the system's development by GPS Standard, which has included a contribution from the University of Milan, is the claimed ability of Miles to identify an area in which, for instance, sabotage has occurred to a pipeline to a location within a few hundred metres.
