- A$230K order for initial 5km section of border
- Follows extensive field testing of FFT buried solution integrated with other security technologies
- Pilot is the first stage of a program to enhance protection on a 3,000km+ border
Future Fibre Technologies Limited (FFT) (ASX: FFT), a global leader in fibre optic perimeter intrusion detection systems, has secured a new border protection order valued at A$230K.
FFT’s technology will be used in conjunction with a range of complementary systems to protect a section of land border between two countries in Asia.
The order follows comprehensive government agency field testing of FFT’s perimeter security detection solutions, which demonstrated the high performance that can be achieved with FFT’s unique IP for covert buried detection of intruders attempting to pass through a secure area, as well as FFT’s integration capabilities.
Commenting on the announcement, FFT Chief Executive Rob Broomfield said, “An increased focus on “homeland security” is raising awareness about border protection and prompting discussion around the most effective security solutions for these often very complex installations. In the last 6 months, FFT has received a number of enquiries regarding long range border security solutions – many requiring ‘proof of concepts’ to validate capabilities in advance of full deployment. In testing to date, FFT has demonstrated superior capabilities over other buried detection solutions.”
