Abstract:

Tests and research were conducted at the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station WES to determine the feasibility of developing standardized procedures for operational performance testing of fence-mounted Perimeter Intrusion Detection Systems PIDS. The tests were conducted at the WES PIDS test site using commercially obtained fence disturbance sensors mounted on standard construction perimeter security fences. Methods and devices were investigated in field tests to determine their effectiveness in simulating human intruders and the response of the sensors to these simulated intrusions. Sensor alarm data were collected to quantify the field test results.
