Fiber based Perimeter Security Solution

Fiber based Perimeter Security Solution (DR.18.02)

On-going 15 Jun,2019 - 15 Jul,2019

A ‘Fiber-optic’ cable based ‘Perimeter Security solution’ is required to protect the strategic areas. The fiber should be buried under the ground to detect the unwanted intrusion covertly. The different events like human walking, vehicle movement etc should be identified properly without any false alarm. The system should have the controller along with the sensor cable up to the maximum range of the perimeter and it should generate the data of the intrusion round the clock [24*7] in all weather conditions. Scalability of the System is required for protecting the perimeter length from 200 meter to 50 km.

 

  1. Public Limited Company, Private Limited Company, Partnership Firm, Limited Liability Partnership, One Person Company, Sole Proprietorship registered as per applicable Indian Laws.

  2. The industry has to be owned and controlled by Indian Citizen.

  3. The Industry with excess of 49% foreign investment will not be eligible.

  4. Industry shall also possess or be in the process of acquiring license/ development of products if the product/ technology under project requires license as per DIPP’s licensing policy.

  5. Company/ Organization which have been debarred/ banned/ blacklisted or the business dealings with whom have been “suspended” / “put on hold” by the Ministry of Defence will not be eligible.

  6. Industry may apply in individual or Association of Persons (AOP) i.e. consortium of Indian Companies consisting of two or more than two undertaking joint and several liability.

 

Feasibility Studies for each project shall be carried out with the involvement of all important stakeholders (Industry, Subject Experts, Industry Associations, etc.). The aim of this study is to identify the technical & financial feasibility of the proposed projects under TDF Scheme. Feasibility study includes preliminary assessment of capability of industry to undertake the project, estimated cost and time for development, estimated cost of the component bearing the technology, etc. This will help the Indian industry (Development Agency) to assess the capability to design and develop, within the required parameters.

 

The feasibility study shall include the following aspects:

  1. A preliminary assessment of capability of the industry to undertake design and development of components/ assembly, etc. bearing the technology.
  2. Estimated time for development.
  3. Estimated cost of development.
  4. Estimated cost of the component bearing the technology.

 

Formulation of Specifications

Based on the feasibility study, Qualitative and Quantitative specifications specifying the key parameters of the required technology will be drafted.  

In order to undertake the online feasibility study for the Project topic of your interest and expertise, please refer to the Brief Project Requirement document for initial understanding about the project specification. 

  1. The following criteria shall be used for determining whether, what and upto what extent the cost incurred by Development Agency shall be paid out of public funds

  1. Cost Allowability

  2. Cost Allocability

  3. Cost Reasonableness; and

  4. Terms of Agreement

  1. A cost is allocable if it is assignable or chargeable to one or more cost objectives on the basis of relative benefits received or other equitable relationship.

  2. A cost is reasonable if it would have been incurred by prudent entity in the conduct of competitive business.

  3. The following cost will be allowable

  1. Manpower Cost

  2. Equipment

  3. Consumables

  4. Academic (Maximum 40% of the total project cost)

  5. Sub-contract

  6. Domestic Travel

  7. Overhead (Maximum 10% of the total approved project cost); and

  8. Contingency

  1. A cost shall not be presumed to be allowable merely because the Development Agency actually incurred the cost, unless meets the test of relevancy, financial prudence, reasonability and relationship.

  2. The Development Agency shall not charge any unallowable cost and the following costs are specifically considered unallowable

  1. Bad debts

  2. Interest (on loans, etc.)

  3. Permanent Building

  4. Contributions or donations

  5. Fines, Legal expenses and penalties

  6. Advocacy and business development

  7. Losses on other contracts

  8. Entertainment

  9. Alcoholic beverages

  10. Business organization cost such as cost of incorporation, re-organization and merger

  11. Workshop/ Seminar

 

  1. The funding will be through provision of grants to Industry

  2. The project cost up to INR 10 Cr will be considered for funding subject to maximum of 90% of the total project cost in general.

  3. Up to 100% funding may be considered on case to case basis.

  4. Industry may work in collaboration with academia or research institutions.

  5. The work involvement of academia cannot exceed 40% of the total projects cost.

  6. The funding is linked with Milestones.

  7. Fund will be released either advance against the bank guarantee of the same amount as collateral or reimbursement basis on completion of Milestone.

  8. Subsequent instalments will be release on successful completion of Milestone.

Designation, ()

Immunity from Interference One specific benefit of fibre optic based systems is their immunity to electromagnetic interference, particularly important for installations near high voltage electrical equipment, or in areas subject to lightning strikes, electromagnetic pulses, strong magnetic fields, or RFI. Intrinsically safe Another important aspect is that no power, external electronics, or control hardware is required in the field other than for the sensing controller located at the start of fence. There is no power applied to or near the fence itself, and the start and end sensors are passive optical devices, requiring no power.

Why are we considering Fibre based intrusion detection systems when the sensing technology is so much more advanced now ? Given the camps and areas we need to secure, there is no large perimeter with the area outside to put these cables, they will always have limitations to boundaries and have also considerable amount of issues with the terrain. Why not go with the more advanced sensor fusion which can help and give better results at 1/5th the costs, easier maintenance ? Also the data and integrations requirements are much more advanced now.

Utilizing fiber-optic cable, the system is the most economically competitive technology currently available for long distances.  Requiring only a single alarm processing unit (APU) to cover up to 100 km/62 Miles, combined with a rugged fiber-optic sensing cable, results in the most cost-effective solution for large perimeters.

This is not true. The problem with using fibre-optic cable in general is the cost and time needed to installation. When we talk about the data generated it is only the form of 1/0 based on parameter settings which means there will always be limited data. It is extremely old-school as a platform and is now being gotten rid of major issues with maintenance cost over long time as well. We believe the future of PIDs is in the ability to predict an intrusion. We have already deployed and tested solutions which work at 1/5th the cost of optical fibres.

Utilizing fiber-optic cable, the system is the most economically competitive technology currently available for long distances. Requiring only a single alarm processing unit (APU) to cover up to 100km/62 miles if the cable starts and ends at the same point or 50 km/31 Miles in straight line combined with a rugged fiber-optic sensing cable, results in the most cost-effective fence detection solution for large perimeters.
