October 2018 / Security Dealer & Integrator 61 The Technology Defined Radar stands for "Radio Detection and Ranging" – utilizing radio frequency waves to detect targets. At its core, radar is an object detection sensor using radio waves to determine the range, altitude, direction and speed of objects. "is means radar can detect anything from an aircra approach- ing an airport terminal to a human approaching a power plant fence line," Zussman says. "Ground-based radar solutions provide 24/7, 360-degree coverage of any protected site, allowing for cost-effective, volumet- ric perimeter protection in all weather and lighting conditions." LiDAR (light imaging, detection, and ranging) uses pulsed laser light to measure distances in a similar way. "LiDAR bounces out laser beams, mea- sures how long it takes for the light to hit an object or surface, calculating the distance to the object the light just hit and forming data points," Surfaro says. "Millions of those data points, called 'point clouds' are processed as a 3D visualization in seconds, rendering accu- rate object displays – all without video surveillance cameras. Unlike radar or sound waves, LiDAR does not dissipate as it travels back to its scanner."
