Abstract

Recent terrorist attacks and possibilities of such actions in future have forced the development of security systems for critical infrastructures that embrace sensors technologies and technical organization of systems. Also views and methods of protection organisation have changed considering the growing possibilities and facilities of terrorist groups. The used till now perimeter protection of stationary objects, based on construction of a ring with two-zone fencing, visual cameras with illumination are efficiently displaced by the systems of the multisensory technology that consists of: visible technology – day/night cameras registering optical contrast of a scene, thermal technology – cheap bolometric cameras recording thermal contrast of a scene and active ground radars – microwave and millimetre wavelengths that record and detect reflected radiation. Efficient range of detection, recognition and identification of persons and vehicles depends on the field of view of a scene and types of the used devices. There is also a variety of applications and control of cameras set for a target detected by radar. This paper presents a structure of critical infrastructure protection that bases on a module multisensor security system and its elements. Keywords: perimeter security system, thermal camera, radar.
