Surveillance system for mobile object protection

Here today, there tomorrow. The task forces of the Swiss Army are highly mobile and the threats they are confronted with are largely asymmetric. In order to be able to effectively protect events, aircraft, field camps, command posts as well as other military and civilian infrastructures, they need surveillance systems as support more than ever. These must be technologically so advanced that they can identify and report attackers and undesired intruders instantly and with a high level of precision.

The surveillance system for mobile object protection offers precisely that – professional protection with, at the same time, minimum staff requirements. It can be flexibly adapted to the specific needs of the operations and does not react to either fatigue or bad weather. While a person can only see a few metres of their surroundings in a snowstorm, in fog or at night, and concentration decreases with exhaustion, the surveillance system guarantees complete monitoring of the perimeter.

Modular system design for maximum flexibility

The surveillance system is stored in containers and operated from inside a container, is modular in design and can be scaled as required. Depending on the assignment, individual models can be added or removed according to the plug-and-play principle. It consists of a network with various different sensors and cameras as well as an innovative image analysis software. 

Cameras

The latest generation cameras are equipped with a night vision and thermal image function and enable the troops to gain an optimum picture of the situation under all conditions. 

Sensory analysis

Just as important as the cameras are the sensors, which detect intruders using various different methods. 

Control centre

The information from cameras and sensors is merged in the control centre, analysed by a software and prepared such that users are informed about all events within the monitored perimeter. Using this information, the troops can take specific appropriate measures quickly. 

Customers such as the organisers of the WEF in Davos put their trust every year in the high level of protection and reliability which is guaranteed by the monitoring system for mobile object protection.
