Texas airport installs fiber optic intrusion detection system

Intrusion detection solutions provider Future Fibre Technologies announced this month that its Secure Fence system, which was installed last year at the perimeter fence of McAllen-Miller International Airport in Texas, has "performed impressively" since its deployment.

According to a statement issued by the company, the system was installed in response to security concerns regarding the airport’s number of commercial flights and proximity to Mexico.

"Overall, the Secure Fence system has provided an excellent enhancement to the physical security at McAllen-Miller International Airport," said Donald "Buck" Taft, the airport’s security coordinator. "The solution is cost effective and ideally suited to airport perimeter protection because of its ability to detect the location of intrusions anywhere on the airport's entire perimeter."

Due to the success of the Secure Fence system, the airport now plans to deploy the company’s CAMS (Central Alarm Monitoring System) solution. For more information about Future Fibre Technologies, visit www.fftsecurity.com/.
