THE AGGRESSOR COUNTRY HAS CHOSEN THE TACTIC OF DESTROYING INFRASTRUCTURE FACILITIES WITH KAMIKAZE DRONES AND OTHER LOW-SPEED AERIAL VEHICLES.
Currently, there is a threat to the following facilities:
• power generation;
• gas supply;
• water supply;
• financial services;
• transport, logistics etc.
According to the classification, there are more than 500,000 critical infrastructure facilities of various categories in Ukraine.
Since the beginning of the war, according to the State Emergency Service of Ukraine, 21,779 critical infrastructure facilities and buildings have been completely destroyed, and almost 140,000 have been partially destroyed.
Who can protect a critical infrastructure facility?
The Ukrainian Armed Forces are performing combat missions at the frontlines and cannot effectively organise the defence of facilities in the interior.
These tasks can be conducted by:
• National Guard of Ukraine; • Units of Territorial Defence Forces; • Equipped facility security units.
How to organise this?
To implement the unified platform for protecting critical infrastructure that includes the following components:
Radar early warning subsystem
Intelligent multi-layered acoustic sensor system "FENEK", which detects and identifies targets at low altitudes
The "VENATOR" subsystem , for UAV destruction
Fires active countermeasures
Multifunctional video surveillance subsystem
A subsystem for managing, visualising and analysing the overall security status of critical infrastructure facilities
What does it look like?
Video surveillance subsystem
How does it work?
Radiolocation system located outside the facility detects targets at a distance of up to 30 km..
Multi-layered acoustic sensor system "FENEK" determines azimuth and elevation and identifies the target.
Video surveillance subsystem provides visual and thermal round-the-clock surveillance
Information from the radiolocation, acoustic and video surveillance system is transferred to the control, visualisation and analysis subsystem.
Simultaneously, all information about the target and its trajectory is transferred to the tablets of the security units equipped with small arms.
Information is processed automatically, gives a command to the UAV destruction subsystem, and is transferred to ADA units and others equipped with anti-aircraft weapons and small arms.
Main technical specifications:
range (radius) of target detection – up to 30,000 m.
targets detection altitude – up to 5,000 m.
range of target velocity detection: 0 – 2,500 km/h.
field of view by the elevation: 0 – 60 deg.
field of view by the azimuth: 0 – 360 deg.
real-time target positioning and visualisation of the flight path.
the subsystem processes the radar situation and delivers the processing results to the servers of the UAV detection and neutralisation system. Processing consists of detecting and recognising UAVs and ignoring decoys.
processing results from UAV detection and guidance devices are combined into a single system information, which increases the probability of UAV detection and timely informs the system operator.
the subsystem verifies the fact of target destruction and transmits this information to the integrated system.
Capability of determining the azimuth, elevation, and acoustic signal strength of an aerial target.
Distribution of acoustic signals coming from the air and the ground surface.
The ability to determine the approximate parameters of the acoustic signal source (aerial target) by mathematical methods, even on a single locally installed device.
After distributing the acoustic signals coming from the air and the ground surface, the signature analysis is performed.
Due to the mathematical processing, the probability of correct detection of an air target is 0.9–1.
The error of correct aerial target detection (false positive) and (false negative) approaches 0.
Thermal and heat image for 24/7 surveillance
Thermal imaging camera 1280×1024 with 25–75 mm focal length, which provides long detection distances.
Sharp image from the latest generation uncooled infrared detector
and leading infrared imaging algorithm.
4MP 50x Optical Zoom Camera
Intelligent video analysis
Intelligent fire detection
Two-channel network video transmission
Integrated high-speed and high-precision PTZ platform
The subsystem is designed to summarise information from all subsystems, analyse data and display information on the tablets of security units.
