Navtech Radar to showcase award winning AGS1600 EXTREME at Intersec 2014

Navtech Radar is set to exhibit its award winning AdvanceGuard AGS1600 EXTREME radar, specifically developed to cope with the environmental and climate conditions found in oil & gas exploration and production, at Intersec 2014. The solution will be showcased in conjunction with Witness, the company’s advanced control software suite, at the exhibition which takes place between January 19-21 in Dubai, UAE. In addition to showcasing the AGS1600 EXTREME, the company will also demonstrate wide area surveillance for airports. The latest airport projects completed include Bristol Airport in the UK and Valencia Airport in Spain.
Keith Chapman, Head of Global Sales, Security Division at Navtech Radar, says, “We know from experience that most of the oil & gas facilities in the Middle East and worldwide are located in geographical areas with very tough environmental conditions. In many instances the use of physical barriers is rendered difficult if not impossible. The AdvanceGuard security surveillance solution is an ideal choice as it can cope with any environmental condition. Wind, snow, rain, fog, and sand has no effect and do not influence its ability to detect any potential threats, whereas other technologies based on visual images would often fail to detect.
