Paper Abstract

Field testing of fiber-based security sensors for use in Shallow-Water Perimeter Intrusion Detection System (SWPIDS) is presented in this paper. These devices were evaluated for continued performance and environmental resilience while deployed in a shallow-water marine environment for several months. These devices were previously untested in such conditions, and were evaluated for consideration in a high-security, low-nuisance alarm, environmentally-friendly underwater security system. The tested sensors include a breach-sensitive stainless steel grate and magnetic tamper switch, both from Woven Electronics, Inc., and a disturbance-sensitive fiber cable from Fiber SenSys, LLC. Preliminary results are presented, including nuisance alarm rates, functionality over the trial period, and resistance to marine effects.
