2 Panther II - BasicsPanther II detects intruders with an invisible electromagnetic detection field using ported coax sensor cables and electronics.CharacteristicsPanther II directly responds to specific human intruder characteristics - size, motion and electromagnetic profilehigh Probability of Detection (Pd) >99%Small animals and environmental effects have a much smaller electromagnetic profile and are disregardedassures low False/Nuisance Alarm Rate (FAR/NAR)Wide velocity response, high Pd and covertnessprovide very low Vulnerability to Defeat.
3 Panther II - Sensing Concept Panther II processor transmits an “RF” signal via the center conductor of one sensor cable (TX)RF signal “leaks” out through a “port” in the cableA second sensor cable acts as a receiver (RX)RF energy produces an electromagnetic field around both cables:volumetric & invisiblealong the length of the zoneabove and below ground1 m (3.3 ft.) high and up to 3 m (10 ft.) wideup to 150 m (500 ft.) longA single processor covers two zones:Total perimeter up to 300 m (1000 ft.)
4 Panther II: How human intruders are detected Humans have large electromagnetic profiles at the RF wavelength transmitted by the processorHumans moving through the field significantly change the RF signalTX and RX signals (phase and amplitude) are compared by the processorprocessor declares an alarm when a preset threshold is exceededOther moving objects with large electro-magnetic profiles will also be detectede.g., cars, trucks, aircraft
5 Panther II - Why FAR/NAR is naturally low False alarms are usually equipment generatedPanther II uses field proven detection algorithms and environmentally tested electronicsNuisance alarms sources are typically small animals and environmentPanther II does not detect small animals and environmental effects because they have small electromagnetic profilesPanther II completely ignores environmental stimuli that have no electromagnetic profile – grass, sunlight, wind, shadows etc.
6 Panther II - Why VD is very low Panther II has an invisible detection fieldif the sensor cannot be seen it is difficult to determine its location, its sensing technology, and hence, is more difficult to defeatPanther II has a very wide velocity rangeextends from 0.02 to 15 m/s (0.008 to 49 ft./sec.)widest range of any sensorCombined effect of high PD, wide velocity range and covertness ensures low VDbetter than any other outdoor sensor

8 Panther II - Application Considerations Panther II can be buried in virtually any type of materialsand, clay, topsoil, rock, concrete, asphaltburied 23 cm (9 in) in soft materials; 6 cm (2.5 in) in hard materialsPanther II can be installed in most any type of terrainflat, hilly, around cornersSurface may include lawns (including sprinkler systems), crushed stone, including landscaped areas with shrubs, flowers and trees
9 Panther II: Open Perimeters Total active perimeter length up to 300 m (1000 ft.)Lead-in from the perimeter to the processor up to 50 m (164 ft.)
10 Panther II: Closed Perimeters Total active perimeter length up to 300 m (1000 ft.)Lead-in from the perimeter to the processor up to 50 m (164 ft.)
11 Panther II - Application Guidelines Panther II is designed for the optimum security clear zone width of 6 m (20 ft)Sensor cables may be located as close as 3 m (10 ft.) from chain link fences and buildings with normal soilsor closer to rigid weld-mesh or palisade fencingSensor cables should avoid puddles or streamswater movement could cause nuisance alarmsSensor cables should be located 5 m (16 ft) from roads to avoid detecting large vehiclesMicrowave or infrared sensors are often used at gate zones
13 Panther II: Application Guidelines (continued) Sensor cables may cross large non-metallic water pipes by shielding area with sheet metalSensor cables may be installed in areas with high voltage power lines (e.g., 400 kV) and where radar and communications devices are located (e.g., airports, military installations)Panther II operates in a non-communications bandIn high lightning incidence areas, external gas discharge lightning arrestors are recommended to further protect electronicsCCTV or other visual means of alarm assessment is highly recommended to confirm alarms and required level of responseConsult Senstar-Stellar for special site application questions.
