Manhole Protection System

stolen copper

Deploy real-time protection against copper theft, vandalism, and unauthorized access of manholes and handholes with the CyberSecure Manhole Protection System™ (MPS). The manhole intrusion detection system was designed to protect critical infrastructures in both big cities and remote rural areas.

The United States has the most robust network of underground infrastructure pathways in the world. The underground pathways are highly utilized by both government and commercial customers to provide secure, high-speed communications to nearly every household, business, school, and military base in the country.

Although the system is crucial for our country’s operations, it is one of the least protected and most vulnerable assets. Due to the rising value of copper over the last decade, a growing number of pathway intrusions through manhole access points have crippled commercial communications throughout major cities. These penetrations jeopardize classified communication links for government and commercial agencies and cost hundreds of millions of dollars annually.

CyberScope ControllerCyberSecure MPS™ addresses the underground critical infrastructure pathway vulnerabilities by providing 24/7/365 intrusion detection monitoring of manholes, handholes and communication junction sites using zero-power fiber optic sensors. The CyberSecure MPS™ hardware controller (1, 4, 8 and 16 channel ranges, capable of supporting up to 800 sensors per controller) monitors CyberSecure IPS’ Universal Cyber Sensor™ and is managed by CyberSecure IMS™ (Infrastructure Monitoring System). CyberSecure IMS™ is a U.S. Government accredited alarm / dispatch management software currently deployed worldwide to manage the protection of classified communication networks. CyberSecure IMS™ automates intrusion alarm dispatching, controls case management, provides detailed maps of every manhole and handhole, and seamlessly retrofits into existing systems.

CyberStrike MPS SensorCyberSecure MPS™ sensors (IP66 industrial standard package configuration) contain no electronic components, require no electrical power, and emit no signals. Due to their optical design the Universal Cyber Sensors utilize a single strand of standard single-mode fiber (SMF) and are inherently immune to electromagnetic and radio frequency interference. The CyberSecure MPS™ suite of fiber optic sensor systems runs on state-of-the-art fiber optic technology and uses light to sense position. With no need to hardwire power or replace batteries, CyberSecure MPS™ provides a cost-effective infrastructure protection option.

CyberStrike MPS DashboardThousands of covers may be monitored simultaneously, and every cover is individually identified and mapped. Individual identification allows immediate positioning of intrusion attempts. This facilitates an immediate focused response by security or law enforcement personnel via the CyberSecure IMS™ Alarm Management software application.
