“Standing up our subsidiary in Texas and bringing on seasoned security industry veterans sends a clear signal about our push to bring real-time intrusion monitoring to the O&G market,” says Quantum CEO Mark Tinker, PhD.
Quantum’s real-time intrusion notification solution detects threats from the air, water, land, and underground. Patent-pending, buried, vibration sensors combined with a suite of proprietary detection and classification algorithms provide significantly greater target detection range than is currently available on the market. Uniquely effective as a stand-alone solution, the value of Quantum applied as an overlay to traditional solutions presents unparalleled situational awareness. Quantum products can identify and track multiple threats simultaneously from a single device. Quantum’s technology doesn’t require line of site to an intruder preventing threats from being obscured by weather, darkness, or vegetation.
