How to secure wind farms with radars and artificial intelligence

One of the key elements in preventing invasions, theft, and vandalism in critical infrastructures such as wind farms is the perimeter protection of the property. A criminal who enters the facility to steal a few meters of wires that transmit the energy generated by the wind turbines, for example, can cause incalculable losses such as operational interruptions, equipment damage, and even fire, putting lives and assets at risk.

As part of the perimeter security strategy, especially for installations with large areas to monitor, Ôguen has brought the Magos Radar from Israel to Brazil, considered the most cost-effective solution per square meter in the security market. The radars can cover up to 600,000 square meters per device, detect up to 100 targets simultaneously, and classify these targets as humans, animals, vehicles, vessels, drones, and more, all at a distance of up to 1,000 meters from a point of protection interest, ensuring active and preventive site security.

"Since our radars have exceptional coverage capabilities, we can drastically reduce the number of cameras and sensors in the project, which consequently lowers the equipment purchase, infrastructure, and maintenance costs. By integrating the Magos radar with a PTZ camera, for example, we can achieve early target identification: the radar detects the intruder, and the camera provides real-time images of the incident to the operator. Regardless of weather or lighting conditions, the MASS+AI software, which is integrated with the Magos radar, classifies the object and immediately alerts the security team, who can initiate the response protocol," explained Kleber Reis, Commercial and Operations Director at Ôguen.

To avoid false alarms, the MASS+AI software allows for the exclusion of targets that are not of interest to the project, such as animals, for example, and also provides the ability to classify targets as "friendly." This way, when an authorized employee needs to work within the radar's coverage area, the equipment, through the employee-activated application, identifies that they have permission to be on-site.

"The Magos radar is an excellent option for wind farm projects as it can cover a large area with just a few devices, requires minimal infrastructure, and does not require maintenance. It can detect targets in any adverse condition with speed and accuracy, and it is integrated with an intelligent platform that assists in the overall management, control, and measurement of operations," concluded Kleber.
