Verify and Track Loads and Content
Both authorized and unauthorized activities can provide multiple types of valuable information overlooked by commercially available monitoring systems.
The ARMS Seismic One detection feature captures the direction the vehicle enters and exits the premises and records the differences in the vehicle's seismic ''signature' to verify
that load weight differences occurred between the time the vehicle entered and exited the facility. The Mile Marker feature captures travel data that aids law enforcement to better locate and question a suspect vehicle. ARMS immediately transmits all of this information to your Security Command Post and/or to our CMS for review prior to taking your designated action.
and Report Hazards
The ARMS components detect, record, and transmit real-time metrics, still photos, video, audio, and other hard evidence of a security threat, safety hazard, or EPA violation. This threat data feeds directly into the our CMS where analysts review and alert designated security or law enforcement to take action before the evidence runs cold. Similarly, ARMS alerts the appropriate parties for safety and environmental hazards. This ability to take immediate action gives you a distinct advantage over other systems.
We accomplish real-time reporting by optimizing distribution of analytics between on-site and cloud-based elements. This produces high detection rates, minimal false alarms, and reliable evidence required by courts to successfully prosecute and convict those responsible. Similarly, EPA violations may be identified and mitigated before fines are levied.
Detect and Deter Oilfield and Equipment Theft
Oilfield theft is Big Business. Billions are lost annually in Texas alone. Rogue tanker trucks carry away stolen petroleum products pumped daily from your storage tanks. Equipment thieves steal your gear. EPA fines resulting from undetected environmental accidents, leaks, and spills can cost you millions.
Our proprietary Automated Resource Monitoring System (ARMS) covertly houses specialized imagers, sensors, and devices that passively detect, identify, and report theft of liquids, solids, and equipment in real-time.
ARMS can also detect safety hazards and environmental contamination. Upon detection, the ARMS transmits this information to our cloud-based Central Monitoring Station (CMS) and/or client Security Command Post (SCP) in real-time to apprehend, prosecute and convict the thieves or mitigate environmental hazards.
Never before has such a powerful combination
of sensors been available to protect
vulnerable Local and Remote Sites
Keep Your Assets Secure
Thoradyne's Automated Resource Monitoring System (ARMS) combines innovative algorithms with state-of-the-art imagers and other sensing devices to render superior results for both your security and safety departments. Our "intelligent solution" allows ARMS to capture and transmit the anomalies that occur during product and equipment theft in time for your to respond and recover your valuable assets. This could amount to over $2 Billion per year in re-allocated revenue to victimized producers in Texas alone.
ARMS addresses broad safety concerns as well. A compromised valve,
pipe(line), or tank, whether by act of nature or through human activity could result in a violation of EPA regulations, or worse, a catastrophic accident.
ARMS provides the solid evidence that prosecutors require to proceed to trial and conviction. ARMS detects, records, and reports in real-time, thus enhancing the prospects for recovering the stolen products and capturing and prosecuting the thieves. The following five elements of evidence are critical for a conviction:
who committed the theft,
what was stolen,
when the theft occurred,
where it occurred and
how much is being diverted?
ARMS collects and documents these elements and more, giving the judicial system the evidence it needs to convict the perpetrator(s).
Do your EPA violations go undetected?
These hazards often require a prompt clean-up response to remedy the situation and avoid involving the EPA. ARMS detects leaking or spilled petroleum liquids and measures the amount of leakage from the compromised tank(s). Pipeline leaks can be detected if within range of ARMS. This valuable information results in accurate reporting and enables first-responders to dispatch the appropriate resources for cleanup or other remediation.
Your Bottom Line
ARMS Saves You Money
How does ARMS do this?
ARMS uses various covert remote modules that quietly communicate with a Central Monitoring Station equipped with a powerful video monitoring system and multiple other reporting systems. These uniquely analyze every known method and condition related to stealing valuable oilfield assets to ensure reporting accuracy, including time-of-day and applicable weather conditions. Our combination of special imagers and sensitive receptors enable operators and law enforcement to clearly identify theft activity often despite challenging weather or lighting conditions. Our highly calibrated array of sensors can determine vehicle point of access, weight (empty vs. full), and unique identifying features. Combined with proprietary covert variables, such as facial and license plate recognition, we provide suspect identity information. With our Proprietary Prediction Technology (PPT), we can predict the vehicle's location after it departs to aid law enforcement in making an arrest that will lead to a conviction. PPT collects data from all observed theft detection activity to perform predictive data analysis that provides clients with alerts that flag the increased likelihood of oilfield theft in their areas of operation.
ARMS is Cost-Effective
ARMS is covert, easy to conceal, and runs on self-contained power. No vulnerable solar cells are required to power the system. Site lighting is a good deterrent, but lighting alone is not a sufficient preventive measure to stop the determined thief. Even in total darkness, ARMS can read license plates and record the transfer of crude or other liquids, and equipment theft. This evidence is covertly transmitted to your Security Command Post and/or our Central Monitoring Station for analysis and to alert authorities so they can make a timely arrest with the evidence to convict. This technology is a true game-changer.
Multi-sensor intelligence collection itself is not new. The founders of Thoradyne Systems have worked with this technology under many adverse conditions. We have extensive experience using it to protect large petroleum assets and gold mines in the Western Hemisphere. CTO Michael Waugh is a certified thermographer with crucial knowledge applying this technology in detection and recovery work. Furthermore, Michael and the other founders have conducted many assignments for the U.S. government and know the legal requirements for success in this field.
At Thoradyne Systems, we use our extensive experience integrating a wide array of miniature imagers and other special passive detectors and seismic devices to create new options for capturing imagery and other evidence under marginal conditions. This is how we achieve optimum mission-critical success.
