Project summary

Requirements to modern systems of collecting and processing information for safe signaling systems integrated with access control systems as well as systems of videosurveillance and videoassessment, are determined by standards and other public managing documents. Analysis of such systems proposed to sale, shows that none of them meet the whole complex of requirements. Besides, currently in conditions of Russia, the use of the complex technical systems produced in one region, at objects situated on significant distance, creates significant problems for both users and developers in case of required system upgrade for its expansion or configuration changes, system repair, expanding or changing functional area. VNIITF possesses big experience of development and use of the similar systems. So the development in VNIITF of the system of new generation is actual, first of all, for Ural-Siberian region.

New integrated system of collecting and processing information MARS-2000 shall ensure the following:

- Increase of reliability of guard and access control,

- Simplifying implementation of signaling, access control and video observation,

- Increase of reliability and decrease of labor consumption of equipment maintenance.

The project objectives are: (1)Development of composition methods and means of data acquisition and processing system for physical protection system ensuring software-hardware integration of alarm, access control, video-surveillance and video-assessment systems and their interface with Materials Control and Accounting System, (2) Development and manufacturing of a sample system satisfying modern world and domestic requirements to such class systems, (3) Testing of the system developed.

In the course of the project a hardware-software complex shall be developed ensuring:

- Collecting and processing data from alarm sensors;

- Data exchange with access control devices;

- Real-time control of technical safeguard, access control, video-observation and video-assessment and other technical means of physical protection system;

- Providing operative and archive information to officials according to their authorization;

- Possibility of flexible system configuration change for specific facility depending on utilized guard signaling hardware, access control, video-observation and video-assessment, size and distance of facilities, physical communications lines, power supply systems, etc. being used.

The results of development can be utilized for stiffening national control of nuclear material preservation on the account of nuclear weapons Non-Proliferation Treaty.

The project will provide an alternative employment for the scientists and engineers engaged with nuclear weapons production optimally using their high qualification and experience gained.

Participation of foreign collaborators is desirable and necessary for:

- Specification of tasks and additional requirements to developments conducted under the project for conditions of potential marketplace;

- Association of scientific and technical efforts of specialists involved in problems solved under the project;

- Practical implementation of project work results;

- Provision of task-force support for hardware development.
