The Mobile LIDAR system detects pollution and transfers information to the appropriate emergency services.

Due to it's large scanning capabilities, (distance of up to 30km) the complex may be used in war zones and during anti-terror operations.

Since 2001, the complex has been supplied throughout Asia and has been adopted for use in the  Russian military.
Using an array of laser emitters and high-tech fiberoptic technologies comprised in the device, the following may be achieved:
-    Determining the presence and nature of pollutants
-    Locating natural and artificial aerosol formations in the atmosphere, evaluating the size and concentration of the particles, as well as observing any changes they undergo
-    Investigating the physical nature of the aerosol
-    Measuring the concentration of gases and macromolecular pollutants
-    Measuring the  parameters of atmospheric turbulence
-    Measuring wind speed and direction
Each of the lidar systems is custom-built and only performs the measurements necessary as well as those specified by the purchaser. All the obtained information is processed by software which can draw conclusions as to the source, the dynamics of the origin and spread of the pollution, along with the ability to overlay the data over the local map and store the information in a special database.
The lidar complex includes an autonomous power system, allowing it to be transported over large distances and operated in standalone mode.

A unique vortex flight security based upon laser probing of the atmosphere solves the problem of vortex trail left by airplanes and increases efficiency of the planes movement control.

The system is a set of autonomous lidar modules, each of which has its own scanning method and range.

Doppler Long-Range Lidar

Its intended purpose is to monitor arbitary sectors in vertical and horizontal profiles at a distance of up to 15 km.

Laser-Doppler Scanner of Vortex Trails

Its inteded purpose is to monitor a specified sector in vertical profiles. Its scanning range is 1000 m.

Doppler Laser Measurement Device of the Wind’s Vertical Profile

Its intended purpose is to estimate the wind and turbulance of vertical profiles. Depending on the volume of measurements obtained by this module, the information is updated once every 4-10 seconds.

These modules combined in an integrated system enable the user to obtain information on the following parameters:

  • Vertical profile of the wind velocity;
  • Structure of aerosol layers;
  • Intensity and dynamics of vortex trails left by airborne devices;
  • The wind shear;
  • The spatial distribution of the wind velocity’s vertical component;
  • The turbulence profile, including clear air turbulence;
  • The intensity of turbulence in the vortex trails.

All the modules listed above are not harmful to eye vision and are accepted for use in residential areas. Depending on the structure of a particular airport, the actual set of modules composing the vortex security system, (i.e. the number of modules of each type, their position related to the landing strips, the structure of interrelationships  and the informational flows) can be customized.

The main purpose of MGVS, the multichannel gyrostabilized sighting system, is the discovery and identification of remote objects located on land, sea, or in air.

The system can be installed on various vehicles: vessels, helicopters, tracked and wheeled automotive vehicles. It can monitor both, day and by night.  The precision of the gyroscopic stabilization is 10 arcseconds and is ensured by an automatic regulation system using high precision fiberoptic gyroscopes.

The system is intended for functioning outdoors at temperature of ±50°Ñ, in any climate.

MGVS is a multi-spectral device, the operator can monitor the objects both in visible (0.4-0.7 mkm) and infrared (8-12 mkm) ranges, as well as measure the distance to objects with a laser rangefinder using 1.54 mkm wavelength which is safe for the eye.

The device has a biaxial direction system for sight axes, in vertical and horizontal planes, with smoothly adjustable aiming speeds.

High precision drivers of the direction system allow the operator to transfer the line of sight with high speed (several times as big as the aiming speed) in the required point of space within the range of working angles.

The rangefinder is designed to measure the distance to a target from 50 to 20 000m. The measurement is performed with 1.54 mkm wavelength laser which is harmless to the eyes.

The targeting optic sight has a magnification of 6x to 20x and a bore diameter of 25.4mm.  The built-in optomechanical shutter guarantees stable and consistent output characteristics of the emitter.

The compact size and small mass of the device allow for mobile use.

The environment-resistant design allows the device to be used in a variety of fields, including scientific, military, geodesic, and topographical as well as road construction, marine navigation, meteorology, etc.

The casing of the rangefinder protects it from dust and water droplets (protection class IP54). The rangefinder is capable of stable functioning, even under the follwing conditions; strong vibrations, extended tilting and mechanical shocks. Warm-up  time is less than 3 minutes from powering on.

The devices' primary purpose is to instantaneoulsy detect potential dangerous subtances and narctoic residue. This device is mainly ideal for Security Checkpoints such as those at: airports,

train stations, state border control, customs and cargo terminals,correctional facilities, entry check at sport and other public events.

The Q-LAB System can be used; during screening of select individuals for ties to terrorism, during documents check and cargo examination, for discovery of suspicious substances, analysis of traces of explosives and narcotic residue.

A contact of less than three seconds is sufficient for the sensor to perform the check/scan.  If the device discovers explosive or drug substances, it sounds an alarm and will display the name of the actual substance, which may then lead to the closer examination and analysis of the suspect. It possesses unique characteristics, such as the speed of its analysis and the ability to recognize a wide spectrum of substances without special calibration.

Q-LAB can operate continuously, even while scanning a dense flow of individuals. Its warm-up time is less than 10 seconds, its' mass is less 3kg, and its' dimensions are 300x230x90mm. Due to its small size, the device can be integrated into various security systems. Its' automated, instantaneous detection of traces of explosive and narcotic residue can be performed simultaneously with regular inspection procedures.

The system is safe for both the operating personnel and the individuals undergoing the inspection.

The MD-02 document reader for passports and visas is designed for optimization of document screening process. It  allows to greatly increase the efficientcy and effectiveness of passport control services while, at the same time, increasing the accuarcy of the information obtained.

The MD-02 reader reads data from machine-readable documents of the new generation, designed and developed in accordance with the ICAO 9303 and ISO 7501 standards. The system performs the reading, highlighting and processing of text and graphical information from passports and visa documents. it then stores the obtained information as a digital image. The system utilizes UV and IR illumination for checking authenticity of the documents.

The MD-02 system has the capability of contactless retrieval of electronic data from A and B format microchips embedded into the next generation of passport and visa documents.

The data obtained from this process is then transferred to a video camera. This is done by  using a system of mirrors that are processed with specialized software. It has been developed for speed, stealth and the convenience of passport control staff. An SDK, a system of libraries is available for those who want to build custom software.

The entire process of document verification only takes a few seconds, which is significantly more effective and efficent compared to manual checking.

The low mass of the MD-02 reader 1.2kg, and its small dimensions (240x180x92.5mm) allow the equipment to be placed right on the operator’s table. The compliance with the ICAO 9303 and ISO 7501 international standards enables the MD-02 to compete with top competitors in the field.

The use of the MD-02 system for control of passports and visas solves the task of organizing efficient and errorless passport control, the problem of crowding at the security checkpoints, the authenticity of the obtained information, and thus ensures the safety of persons crossing the border.

The standalone BIOCODE system using the technology of fingerprint identification prevents unauthorized individuals from gaining access to  your home or office.

The fingerprint identification technology guarantees access to your guarded location only to authorized personnel, whose fingerprints have been previously entered into the BIOCODE system and not just someone who had a keycard or magnetic key fall into their hands.

BIOCODE’s memory can contain up to 10 000 fingerprints. They can be entered into the system using either a computer or a remote control. A scan takes no more than 2 seconds to complete and identify, which allows  for a continuous flow of people through the checkpoint.

The system case, which houses both the scanner and system controller, is manufactured in two modifications:  plastic, for indoor use, or metal, for outdoor use. The metallic casing of the BIOCODE system is vandal-proof and operates within the temperature range of -40C to +85C.

In addition to all the above, the BIOCODE system controller contains a Wiegand-26 connector for integration with other security systems.

Installing the BIOCODE system at your front door guarantees that you, your coworkers and your property will be safe.
