Pipeline Security & Protection System
Series P-SSP


1. Introduction
The pipeline security & protection system will be mainly used to monitor and obverse the pipeline in order to avoid assaults, theft and terrorism. All 300-600m along the pipeline a substationcubicle with 2-4 cameras (daylight and/or infrared) will be erected. Each cubicle is connected via radio to the next adjacent and at the end to a control center. The cubicle’s energy demand will be supplied by solar cells. Thus the subsatations are fully independeend form the location placed. The cameras observe a preset aera. If a motion will be detected, it will be immediately reported to the control center and invoke an alarm. The supervision staff checks the event, switching to the relevant camera, and decide further actions such as alarm for the protection guards or elminates with special hardware the subjects.
2. Short Description
The pipeline security & protection system are mainly used for pipelines, oil/gas riggs, pump stations and country broders. The P-SSP-System consists of 4 major elements:
- control center hardware
- control center software
- communitcation between the substations and
  control center

- substation equipment

Control Center Hardware

The control center hardware is separated into two major components.
- telecontrol interface which connects the
  communication lines from the substations to the
  computer system

- computer system is a host-client structure with a
  main area which is the presentation of the
  surveillances cameras

Control Center Software

The main part of the software is the P-SSP software which monitors the pictures of the surveillance cameras of the substations and the presentation of the alarms enabling further steps to protect the pipeline. Additional information of the pump station data and control are additional features. Additional software like state estimator, etc. can be offered.


The communication is another important and difficult part of the system because the substations are far from public areas. Thus different communication systems must be inplemented such as 
-  radio
-  fiber optics

-  satellite

Substation Equipment

The substation equipment consists of
-  day light camera

-  infra red camera
-  independend power supply
-  communication equipment

PLC for pump stations

3. Area-of-Usage

-  Public utilities
-  Oil and gas supply

Border control systems
High-/meidum overhead lines
