Orwell-R perimeter and territory guarding radar system

Orwell-R perimeter and territory guarding radar system is designed for round-the-clock all-weather guarding of objects and their approaches by means of radar surveillance. Orwell-R radar system detects moving targets at a distance of 1600 meters for people and up to 3000 meters for vehicles in an arbitrary viewing sector.

Orwell-R radar system is unique in that it is capable of not only detecting moving targets but also of classifying them (a human, a group of people, a vehicle, a vessel, a train, a heavy traffic area), tracking their movement, determining their exact location, speed and movement direction using software. Orwell-R radar system enables guarding the perimeter and the territory of an object. The integrated security system can accommodate an unlimited number of radar systems, video and thermal imaging surveillance equipment operating in a single IT environment. Integration of the system with video and thermal imaging equipment is a basic function of the system, which provides video automatic capturing of targets and alarm events.

Orwell-R characteristics

The optimum functioning of Orwell-R radar system is provided through flexible tuning of the viewing zone parameters (the range bracket and the azimuth sector) and algorithms of automatic detection, recognition and determining target coordinates in accordance with peculiar features of the guarded object as well as short-time and long-time (seasonal) changes in surveillance conditions.

The short-range mode is optimized for small-size objects and provides the minimum blind area (30 m), the maximum instrumented range being 1000 m.

The long-range mode provides the best performance at detecting small-size targets (humans in the first place) at a distance of up to 1000 m, vehicles – at a distance of up to 1500 m.

The double range mode is recommended for large objects (hydroelectric dams, sea ports) and implies automatic detection and tracking of large targets (vessels, heavy vehicles) at a distance of up to 3000 m while keeping the optimum performance of small target detection.

The combined mode maximizes the distance of small target detection by means of simultaneous use of several signal types and continuous viewing of the short range and long range brackets. It is recommended to be used with small (up to 120 degrees) azimuth coverage.
