The sooner a facility is alerted to a possible threat, the better, and when a threat reaches inside a facility&rsquo;s fence, it may be too late to mitigate it. Security directors need situational awareness that extends outside the facility and provides the ability to intercept intruders before they become a threat.</p> <p>Zones of interest, or buffer zones, outside a facility&rsquo;s fence line are particularly important for security professionals at facilities such as refineries, electrical stations, chemical plants and other elements of critical infrastructure. Ground-based radar systems are expanding the capabilities of buffer zone surveillance at economical prices and with low false alarm rates.
