AMC Security Systems is a specialist provider of high-security perimeter protection and access control systems for secure military installations. We offer a range of products from detection and monitoring systems, automated gates, road blockers and bollards, access controls, ANPR, CCTV to security fencing. We are able to offer full turnkey security solutions ranging from simple boundary demarcation to full personnel and traffic control / monitoring systems including solar / wind power and low energy LED area lighting. Our PAS68 anti-ram products may be integrated into a system to provide guaranteed threat denial to sensitive locations.

Vehicle-borne IED (VBIED) protection for military bases

AMC supplies a full range of PAS68 and K12 tested and certified products to protect against VBIED attacks. Rising road blockers and automatic bollards are generally used to deny access to an installation’s approach roads, and our unique automated tyre-killer barrier system will deflate tyres on any road vehicle approaching at any speed.

Military base perimeter security

AMC have a wide range of perimeter fencing systems, from general purpose weldmesh fencing to high security anti climb, anti-cut steel fencing. When combined with our vibration detection and CCTV systems this fencing provides deterrence, alerting and monitoring capabilities to even remote locations.

Vehicle control for military installations

Automatic number plate recognition systems may be combined with our anti-ram products to allow authorised traffic free entry to a military installation whilst maintaining the highest levels of threat defence. Logging and alert capabilities are standard, so the client is able to monitor vehicle movements and programme different actions in the event of unknown or specific target vehicles attempting entry to the protected area.

Access control for military installations

Personnel, visitors and members of the public may be controlled and monitored over large scale facilities by AMC’s integrated access controls. Access requests are centrally logged for real time monitoring or future interrogation, whilst specific areas may be allowed or denied to individual users and over different time scales. Biometric recognition devices may also be integrated into these systems.

Detection systems for military bases

Area protection and alarming is provided by a combination of passive and discreet sensor systems feeding a central monitoring station. For example, infra-red detection curtains integrated into discreet street light columns can differentiate between animal and human movement. Additionally when a threat is detected, software recognition systems automatically follow the threat, and if a secure area is threatened, programmable alarms will be sent to any number of response agencies, with details of the threat and location.

Enhancing your environmental credentials

AMC have been working in conjunction with leading suppliers of low energy lighting and alternative energy equipment. As a result we are now able to offer combined solar and wind power systems to many of our security products and installations. Additionally our new ballistic resistant LED area lighting units are the first in the world to offer energy saving floodlighting together with the high levels of attack resistance.
