The Bandweaver Horizon technology is a sophisticated Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) technology which forms a key part of a perimeter monitoring and intrusion detection solution.

  • High performance intrusion detection solution
  • Simple installation
  • Low cost of ownership
  • Solution immune to RFI
  • Event classification algorithms
  • High detection rate – low nuisance alarm level
  • 100km range per system
  • Location to within 5m
  • No distributed electronics along intrusion path
  • 2 year standard warranty

Bandweaver’s Horizon solution provides detection both above and below ground from a single unit or even with a single fiber optic cable. This can be applied to covert buried, fence mounted and wall mounted perimeters.

The Maxview Horizon platform is a very versatile platform which provides information at all points along your asset. This covers both buried assets (pipelines, cables) and assets above ground (overhead power lines, fences, perimeters).
Bandweaver’s extensive library of event classification engines assures that a wide variety of events can be detected before any potential threat or damage occurs. With intelligent zone configuration you are able to configure and customize according to your needs.
