Abstract

The paper presents a multispectral protection system for critical infrastructure. The system consists of a vision camera, an IR camera and radar. The radar data are utilized to establish the location of a potential intruders and to control an observation area for system cameras. A final decision from system is evaluated using image data. The method of data fusion used has been introduced. It consists of image fusion algorithm which allows visualizing and tracking intruders under any conditions. The multisensor construction of the protection system allows one to achieve significant improvement of detection probability of intruder and reduce false alarms. Keywords: multisensor security system, radar, VIS camera, IR camera, data fusion.
