Ensuring all-weather system reliability is critical. Year-round testing of MicroTrack™ II in extreme conditions such as deep snow or high winds lets Southwest Microwave demonstrate consistent sensor performance in varying climatic extremes. - Tony Phelps, Technical Manager – Southwest Microwave Ltd., Worcestershire, UK


INTREPID™ MicroTrack™ II is the new-generation of Southwest Microwave’s field-proven buried cable intrusion detection system for applications where covert perimeter protection is essential. It is a volumetric, terrain-following sensor that reliably detects and precisely locates walking, running or crawling intruders along a facility’s perimeter. MicroTrack™ II incorporates enhanced digital signal processing (DSP) for even higher detection performance in challenging site conditions.

With a coverage range of 400 meters (1312 ft) per processor, the system consists of a MicroTrack™ II processor unit and two sensor cable pairs that may be buried along a facility’s perimeter in soil, asphalt or concrete. A detection field is created around the sensor cable pair, enabling the detection of intrusions.

MicroTrack™ II is the industry’s highest performing buried cable sensor, designed to fully adapt to its installed environment, setting new standards for performance by providing covert, terrain-following detection that is uniform along a site’s perimeter. It pinpoints the location of perimeter disturbances using a target’s spatial and time signatures to discriminate legitimate intrusions from harmless disturbances caused by small animals or environmental factors such as wind, rain or snow. The system’s high signal-to-noise ratio and precise target location produce superior probability of detection and a very low false/nuisance alarm rate (FAR/NAR).

With MicroTrack™ II, detection zones are set in software, to cost-effectively tailor zoning to suit a site’s unique requirements.

As part of the new-generation INTREPID™ family, MicroTrack™ II networks seamlessly with the MicroPoint™ II Fence Detection Sensor and MicroWave 330 digital microwave link, using a common, open-architecture communications protocol.
