SAND – Smart All-Terrain Networked Detectors

SAND is an advanced, stand-alone, long-life, wireless security system that remotely monitors wide areas. The system detects and tracks both the movement of people – such as crawling, walking etc – as well as movements of all types of vehicles. Based on innovative seismic sensing technology, SAND can be used in any geophysical or environmental conditions.

It is especially useful in difficult-to-observe areas, including hilly terrain, where line-of-sight monitoring is not feasible.

The SAND system meets the operational needs of a wide range of military and homeland security missions – including perimeter security, border control, surveillance and intelligence. It is also ideal for use in a variety of civilian applications, supporting the protection of national infrastructures, oil pipelines, construction sites, airports, prisons, factories etc.
