Southwest Microwave, the developer of integrated electronic perimeter intrusion detection systems, has recently received Government certification from the UK’s Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) for its INTREPID MicroPoint II intelligent fence-mounted perimeter intrusion detection sensor.
Focused on the protection of national security and reducing the UK’s vulnerability to terrorism or criminal threats, the CPNI provides protective security advice spanning physical, personnel and cyber/information security. Tasked with recommendation and specification of specific security measures and protocols that deter, detect or minimise the consequences of attack, CPNI employs a range of stringent professional standards to rigorously test and approve physical security equipment for the protection of Critical National Infrastructure (CNI) sites.
Certification of INTREPID MicroPoint II by CPNI qualifies the system as a reliable perimeter fence detection solution for the fortification of CNI installations.
All MicroPoint II system components, including Processor Module (PM II), Control Module (CM II), MicroPoint MC115 (standard) and MC315 (armoured) sensor cables, JB70A Lightning and Surge Protection Module and PS49 Power Supply are now itemised in CPNI’s Catalogue of Security Equipment, published to support key public and private sectors partners in the selection of equipment approved to protect essential national services and assets.
“Our INTREPID MicroPoint II fence-mounted perimeter intrusion detection system has been deployed worldwide to secure critical energy, transportation, Government and industrial sites along with many other facilities linked to CNI,” explained Martin Lomberg, Southwest Microwave’s European general manager.
“The successful accreditation of the MicroPoint II by CPNI reinforces its capabilities as an effective counter-terror solution for the highest security applications, both here in the UK and abroad.”
