Tunneling Detection

Over the last ten years, SENTEL has been at the fore-front of developing cutting edge technology designed to defeat alternate modes of ingress, like tunneling.

By integrating sensors and systems designed to detect seismic disturbances along linear and non-linear barriers, our engineers provide military commanders and border patrol officers with full operational awareness that their perimeters are safe below ground and on the water. Our scientists and engineers have perfected a means by which lasers and fiber optic cabling combine to create a cheap and effective system that can detect tunneling activity while filtering out normal ambient noises and movements associated with vehicle, airplane, and foot traffic.

These systems have been assembled and deployed in support of military operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Kuwait, as well as training exercises in Israel, Jordan, Turkey, and Egypt, and have been utilized for border security in the southwestern United States. The effectiveness of the systems has been demonstrated in multiple types of soil, as well as in coastal and inland waterways.
