Critical Infrastructure Protection

Protecting facilities of major importance to communities is a shared responsibility of national governments and infrastructure operators with their own or contracted security personnel. The goal is to implement security-related preparedness concepts to analyse potential threats and recommend structural, organisational, personnel and technical protective measures. Our technology enables stakeholders to expand the perimetric security of critical infrastructures, collect and visualise information onsite quickly and safely to ensure smooth operation and fast emergency response where needed.

Maintain technical basic infrastructure

The security of power supply infrastructures, such as power plants and utility networks, is one of the major concerns for the plant operator. Another concern might be the regular maintenance of machines, structures, blueprints, emergency concepts, and escape routes. Just like maintenance and documentation of assets required to guarantee continuous generation and distribution of power, security systems also need the same attention to ensure an uninterrupted power supply.

The Leica BLK360 imaging laser scanner creates a digital twin, or complete 3D model of the plant, which can be virtually visited by safety managers, inspection staff at any time and from any place. A complete plan of the infrastructure might help to optimally harness the potential threats to avoid a plant failure, resulting in a sustained disruption in the overall network system.


Monitor and protect infrastructure

The focus of structured security-related preparedness has, at the government and private level, shifted in the past decade. Today, it is mandatory for public and non-public entities to introduce preventative counter-sabotage protection. International agreements demand protective measures in the transport sector, such as airports and port infrastructure.

Geared with a LiDAR-based 3D surveillance system composed of the Leica BLK247 and Accur8vision, professionals can monitor and protect critical infrastructure. The BLK247 fuses lidar, video and thermal imaging with edge computing and intelligent algorithms to instantly detect and report physical changes within an environment.

Accur8vision, an expanded perimetric security software, contains elements of virtual reality to navigate through the map with a virtual intruder and is enhanced by artificial intelligence in detecting objects. The system is suitable wherever different areas on demand need to be secured at different times. The operator of the central security console secures the area by simply clicking the mouse on the 3D map.


Monitor dams and prevent flood disaster

The potential risks in the event of asset failures in the dam sector are considerable and could result in significant destruction, including loss of life, massive property damage, and severe long-term consequences. Residual effects of dam failure can be loss of water supply, power, flood control, navigation, or recreation, all having long-lasting social, economic, and public health impacts. That is why the continuous monitoring and protection of dams and hydropower plants is key in every country's security policy. Our dam monitoring solutions include total stations such as, the Leica Nova TM60 or Leica TS16 total station and the Leica Aibot UAV.

One-button indoor as-built documentation with 360° imagery




Capture reality with the Leica BLK360

The BLK360 captures a facility or the environment in 3D with full-colour panoramic images superimposed over a highly accurate point cloud. Weighing only 1 kg, the BLK360 is the smallest and lightest instrument of its kind and is easy to use thanks to its one-button operation.Anyone who can handle a tablet computer can now capture the environment with high-resolution 3D panoramic images.

The BLK360 is capable of thermal imaging thanks to its built-in thermal imaging sensor. Every scan includes a thermal image panorama, allowing you to view temperatures within the scan with a colour scale and capturing hotspots.

Manage and deliver the data with Leica Cyclone FIELD 360 and Leica Cyclone REGISTER 360 (BLK Edition)

Using Cyclone FIELD 360 app, the BLK360 streams image and point cloud data to a mobile device or final project data to Cyclone REGISTER 360 or Cyclone REGISTER 360 (BLK Edition) via Wi-Fi. With on-the-fly image and point cloud processing in the field and auto-registration office workflows in both software offerings, the BLK360 plus the software solution of your choice dramatically streamlines the reality capture process – thereby opening this technology to everyone.

3D laser scanning for most demanding accuracy needs and long-range capturing




Capture data with Leica ScanStation P-Series

ScanStation P-Series 3D laser scanners provide an industry-leading accuracy engineered to withstand difficult environmental conditions while delivering unmatched accuracy, range and performance. Although price and performance vary depending on the model, all ScanStations share the same professional-grade construction, durability, weather resistance and ease of use.

Manage the data with Leica Cyclone FIELD 360 and Leica Cyclone REGISTER 360

Captured scan data is visualised and pre-registered directly in the field in real-time with the Cyclone FIELD 360 app, allowing users to check data completeness onsite.

 

Quickly post-process 3D environments in the office with Cyclone REGISTER 360 software.

Visualise infrastructure with Leica TruView

TruView point cloud visualisation software allows you to measure, integrate and collaborate based on the captured point cloud data. Using just a USB stick, local network, private cloud or public cloud, an interactive 3D model is available to all stakeholders.

3D Smart surveillance system for threat detection and protection




Smart threat detection and intrusion prevention with Leica BLK247

The BLK247 is a smart 3D surveillance system that immediately determines threats versus non-threats with accuracy and reliability. The BLK247 sensor fusion technology combines LiDAR, video, and thermal imaging sensors. It monitors spaces by performing real-time change detection in 3D.

Manage the data with Accur8vision

Accur8vision is an expanded perimetric security system. Accur8vision guards the entire area of a patrolled space and is suitable for securing both large and small areas.

Deliver the results/reports with Smart Surveillance System

Increase overall confidence in your security system. Monitor an entire space 360° horizontal x 270° vertical field-of-view coverage and define specific areas of interest for surveillance using 3D geofencing. Define alarm zones. Change the protective zones flexibly according to your needs. Provide security for the unloading and loading or boarding areas in airports or harbours where fences and infra-barriers can’t be installed in this space. Monitor the movement of people and prevent possible intrusion.

Structural monitoring for automated safety and rescue operations on an incident scene




Monitor movements with Leica Geosystems total stations and a dedicated app

With a Leica Geosystems total station and an on-board app, movements of structures can be automatically and precisely monitored day or night to ensure safety of incident response teams and the victims.

Continuously monitor movements with Leica GeoMoS software and Leica Geosystems total stations

For structures that need to be monitored for a longer period of time, an automated monitoring system can be established. Comprising of a Leica total station at the scene and Leica GeoMoS software, any movement in the structure will be detected 24/7. Notifications of movement are automatically sent to inform stakeholders to ensure safety.
