Monitoring Railway Infrastructure Security

The Sensonic Security Application supports railway operators and security managers in protecting critical railway infrastructure components:

  • Prevent disruptions to railway operations
  • Maintain safety of railway assets and passengers
  • Prevent damage or loss of railway property

The Sensonic Solution monitors entire routes for activities that may pose a threat to security. These include human footsteps, ground digging, fence climbing, or cable tampering. This information helps railway personnel respond to imminent danger. It also enables railway security officers to build intelligence over time regarding trends and patterns of suspicious activities along the railway network.

Vibration-based Insights for Security Surveillance

  • 24×7 Surveillance of railway environment using Fiber-Optic Sensing
  • Increased visibility of potential threat vectors along the railway
  • Quick notification of various suspicious activities
  • Build security intelligence based on activity patterns and trends

Informed Decisions to Better Utilise Security Resources

Decrease Complexity

  • One system to monitor multiple suspicious activties
  • Minimum hardware requirement
  • One system monitors up to 80 km of network

Increase Efficiency

  • Direct security measures in a targeted way
  • Prevent incidents by preemptive action
  • Reduce danger, damage, and downtime

Maximum Safety

  • Minimise on-track time for security staff
  • Maximise safety for train operations

Technology

Sensonic pioneers new technologies, making it possible to monitor your entire railway network at any given moment in time. From the vibration along your network, we create a digital twin and derive highly valuable, actionable information that will take your operations to the next level.

  • Holistic 24/7 view of all changes in track condition and activities along your network
  • Generate reports and forecasts by combining live data with historical data

The Sensonic Solution’s capability to achieve this roots in the use of Fiber Optic Sensing (FOS).

  • Turns existing fiber optic cables into a longitudinal acoustic sensor
  • One edge device covers 80 km of track
  • Detect any train without specific onboarding equipment
  • Minimal investment and follow-up costs compared to pure on-board and other on-track solutions
  • Simple and quick rollout: just power, internet and fiber optic cables are needed
