Personal security, safe city, homeland security, corporate headquarters, manufacturing plants, airport, seaport – these are locations where security and safety concerns are growing rapidly. Threats emerge due to intensifying global terrorism but also because of the unstable global financial situation, increasing immigration, people movement between countries, and general personal unease.
Securing a site or city requires the ability to distinguish between friend and foe. Video surveillance is an obvious answer. However, it is limited to day light operation only. The advent of thermal imaging cameras brought about a whole new set of capabilities to video surveillance. Security forces can now observe and investigate any situation during day and night and even in harsh visibility conditions like rain and fog. For security alert systems based on analytics and other detection technologies, thermal imaging brings a much clearer picture with improved ability to identify suspicious movements in the scene.

Construction Site and Remote Area Security
Building sites can be a goldmine for thieves, with copper, construction site materials, tools and plant equipment being a constant challenge to security. The Home Office estimates that the construction industry loses approximately £1 million pounds per week in plant theft. If you look at indirect costs to the industry it is estimated at £400 million per year. Most building site management teams work to extremely strict budgets constraints and the first solution they look to in securing their site is usually manned guarding. Manned guarding can be cost prohibitive with guarding costs starting from £800 pounds per week. Assistec has a designed and managed solution to help secure sites as well as being extremely cost effective.
TSCM (technical surveillance counter-measures) is the original United States Federal government abbreviation denoting the process of bug-sweeping or electronic counter surveillance. It is related to ELINT, SIGINT and electronic countermeasures (ECM).
The United States Department of Defence defines a TSCM survey as a service provided by qualified personnel to detect the presence of technical surveillance devices and hazards and to identify technical security weaknesses that could aid in the conduct of a technical penetration of the surveyed facility. A TSCM survey will provide a professional evaluation of the facility's technical security posture and normally will consist of a thorough visual, electronic, and physical examination in and about the surveyed facility.
