1. Introduction
The market oers huge variety of electronic and optical systems for perimeter
protection and area surveillance. But there are very few good options if the perimeter is many
kilometers long and the area you wish to monitor has neither power nor communication
infrastructure.
This whitepaper introduces the SENTRY RB Autonomous Intrusion Detection
System.
This system is based on Unattended Ground Sensors (UGS). UGS systems have long been
used in defense, but due to various technology limitations had very little application in other
areas. Our innovative approach in UGS design enabled us to overcome the limitations and build
a system that can be used eciently not only in defense, but also in homeland, industry and
private security.

2. Overview
SENTRY RB Wireless Intrusion Detection System is a battery operated wireless intrusion
intrusion detection system with unrivaled detection and autonomous operation time
parameters for use in homeland, industry and private security.
The SENTRY RB Wireless Intrusion Detection System includes detection devices
based on dierent physical principles of operation (seismic, microwave, infra-red, etc.), video
surveillance devices and command and control devices.
All components of the system are linked into a radio network. The network consists of
two-levels: lower level networks and higher level networks. Lower level networks are used for
detection devices, while higher level networks are used for linking several lower networks
together or for increasing communication range of the whole system. Proprietary two-way
radio protocol guarantees delivery of alarm messages. Devices installed on the terrain form a
mesh network, where each detection device operates as a repeater, thus enabling transmission
of alarm and service data to a practically unlimited distance.
The system can be fully controlled by its handheld and PC-based receivers. Location of
sensors and alarms are displayed on a digital map.
SENTRY RB can be used as a standalone system, or be integrated into other security
solutions, including ground radars, PTZ cameras and CCTV systems.
SENTRY RB is a reliable, simple and exible solution for perimeter surveillance, and
the only ecient solution for areas with no power and communication infrastructure.
As of today the System is securing over 2000 km of State Borders, 1800 km of pipelines
and over 400 km of facilities perimeters worldwide. The system has proven its reliability in a
wide range of climatic conditions: from permanent frost of Yakutia to scorching heat of North
Africa.

5. Main Components
5.1. Detection Devices
5.1.1. RS-U Multi-Sensor
The RS-U is designed for detecting a foot- borne intruder
and/or a vehicle by seismic noise they produce.
The RS-U with the battery is installed underground, 30 to
50 cm deep. Only the antenna is left on the surface appearing like
a thin wire. In real conditions its virtually impossible to detect the
location of an installed RS-U sensor. The detection zone is circular.
Operation modes
Seismic detection device.
Tripwire detection device The detection zone is created by spreading a micro wire
from 2 coils, 1500 m each, connected to the RS-U Sensor.
External device control unit When detecting an intruder, the RS-U Sensor actuates
any device connected to it for a preset time.
Repeater.
Communication Unit Receiver of alarm and system data from other sensors when
connected to a PC.
Features
Concealed installation in any type of ground;
Operates under snow, does not require seasonal adjustments and regular
maintenance;
Unattended operation on a single battery up to 5 years;
Detection radius in seismic mode up to 100 m for pedestrians, up to 200 m for
vehicles;
Light weight and small size.
How it works
After the RS-U is connected to the battery, an inbuilt microprocessor starts processing
the seismic signal and generates alarm signals only if the seismic pattern is similar to a persons
steps or vehicle movement. When several RS-Us are installed, radio exchange routes are set
automatically.
When the RS-U is deployed, its location must be recorded in the memory of the KOPR
Handheld Control Receiver. For this purpose, the Handheld Control Receiver is equipped with
an inbuilt GPS device.
Any RS-U can be connected to a PC. The connected sensor exchanges data between the
radio network and the mapping system. This allows to display the deployed sensors on a digital
map and remotely control their settings and modes. The RS-U has a provision for micro wire
coils connection.
5

Settings adjustment and mode selection is carried out via a radio channel by means of
the Handheld Control Receiver or PC based Operators Console (PORT). When setting the
sensitivity level of the seismic detection device, the background seismic noise level can be
determined in real time mode. In this mode, the sensor transmits to the receiver the
accumulated seismic noise level data in relative values. This mode allows to quickly dene the
detection range of the sensor and, if needed, adjust the required detection radius.
If the battery level drops to a critical level, the RS-U sends a warning message requesting
battery replacement. After sending the message, the RS-U continues to operate for two more
weeks.

5.1.2. RS-U Multi-Sensor (with tracking option)


This version of RS-U Multi-Sensor can be used
as point detection or tracking device. For operation
in Tracking Mode the unit should be equipped with
SV External Sensor.
Features of operation in Tracking Sensor
Mode (in addition to features of RS-U Intrusion
Multi-Sensor):
Classication of 3 intruder types: single pedestrian, group of pedestrians, vehicle;
Real time plotting of intruders movement trajectory;
Real time measurement of intruders speed.

How it works (in Tracking Sensor Mode)


The tracking sensors are placed within each others detection zones. The overlap of the
Sensors Detection Zones creates the Tracking Zone.
Each tracking sensor gets a bearing to the detected intruder and sends it via radio
channel to PC-based Command and Control Device running the GIS SENTRY RB Command
and Control Software. The rst crossing point of two bearings marks the beginning of the track.
As the intruder moves on, the system keeps marking new crossing points of the bearings,
drawing the intruders track on the digital map.

Picture 1. RS-U Tracking Multi-Sensor application example 1 Intruder moving alongside the
border.

Picture 2. RS-U Tracking Multi-Sensor application example 2 Intruder crossing the border.
As illustrated in the examples above, with the help of the new RS-U Tracking MultiSensors the operator can identify real intrusions (when an intruder crosses the border line) and
send patrols out only when it is necessary thus saving costs and patrols. The extra information
provided by the tracking mode makes the system ideal for narrow state borders and
applications requiring information on the targets speed and direction.

5.1.4. RS-IK Infra-Red Sensor
The RS-IK Infra-Red Sensor is designed for setting up detection lines with a narrow
detection zone.
Features
A three-degree-of-freedom bracket allows to install Infra-Red Sensors on
any surface (soil humps, tree trunks, rocks, etc.);
Autonomous operation for up to 3 years;
Mobility can be quickly deployed;
Detection zone length: foot-borne intruder up to 50 m,
vehicle up to 100 m;
Detection zone width up to 3 m, detection zone height up to 2 m;
Compact size and light weight.
How it works
The Infra-Red Sensor detects variations of the temperature background in a very narrow
elongated zone and generates an alarm signal. To reduce the likelihood of false alarms
triggered by animals, birds and other interference sources, variations are registered in two
sectors, and an in-built processing algorithm generates an alarm signal only if certain signals are
9

received, similar in shape, time and amplitude characteristics to the signal triggered by a
human crossing the beams.
After the Infra-Red Sensor is installed and activated it needs to be turned along the
detection line in such a way that there wouldnt be any moving objects (for instance, moved by
the wind) in the detection zone to avoid false alarms.

5.1.5. RS-L Microwave Sensor


The RS-L Microwave Sensor is designed for detecting a footborne intruder and/or a vehicle by variations in the
electromagnetic eld.
The Microwave Sensor consists of a transmitting (PRD) and
receiving (PRM) units between which an electromagnetic eld is
formed. The PRM unit has an inbuilt radio modem to transmit
alarm data and control the Microwave Sensor (adjustment
and threshold setting).
The receiving and transmitting units are powered by
autonomous power sources.
Features
The length of the RS-L detection zone of a foot-borne intruder or a vehicle is from 3
to 100 m (200 for RS-L/200 version);
The operating life on a single battery is up to3 years;
Light weight and small size.
How it works
After connecting the battery, the Microwave Sensor goes to the standby mode.
10

The transmitting and receiving units are located at the opposite ends of the secured
area. The transmitting unit sends electromagnetic waves in the direction of the receiving unit.
The receiving unit receives the waves and analyses the received signal. A human or another
object crossing the detection zone causes variations in the received signal. The amplitude and
shape of the variations depend on the height and weight of the person, point of crossing the
zone, zone relief and the object speed. If the parameters of the variations correspond to the
preset ones, the receiving unit generates an alarm message.

5.2. Autonomous Video Surveillance Sub-System


In some cases it is not sucient just to receive a signal from the sensors; the operator
needs to see what is happening on the detection line to dene the number of intruders,
direction of their movements and see if the intruders are armed. For instance the system can
be used to video record a fact of an unauthorized pipeline hookup or a state border violation.
Wireless Battery-operated Video Surveillance Sub-System consists of: RS-TV TV sensors
with infrared backlight, TV-R TV repeaters, PTV Portable TV Receiver and TV-BPO TV Control
station.
The video sub-system can be installed fast and covertly on the detection line and when
triggered by other sensors it can provide the system operator with visual information on the
secure area.
5.2.1. RS-TV TV Sensor
This is a battery-operated TV camera
capable of transmitting real-time video feed
(25 frames/second) via a radio channel. This
high-sensitivity camera equipped with
infrared backlight enables the operator to
detect a camouaged person moving
against the background of vegetation in any
time of day (day and night) within the
distance of 100 m.
Features
Operates on one battery for up to 6 months;
Transmits video data via a radio channel;
Activated by operators command or by a sensor;
All-weather casing (allows to use it in any climate conditions in temperatures
ranging from -40 to +50 and humidity of up to 95%);
Small dimensions and light weight;
Takes no more than 10 minutes for one person to install one camera.

How it works
The camera is attached to any landscape elements using a set of mounting rig. It can be
xed to a tree, a power transmission tower, stones, rocks or natural elevations within the
secure area. The rechargeable battery can be placed nearby or buried underground (thus
increasing operating life in low temperatures). Antenna of the camera should be placed within
line-of-sight of receiver antenna or repeater antenna. All the camera elements are installed in a
concealed way.
Most of the time video camera is in standby mode and is activated by operator or by
signals from sensors received via radio-modem. Since the camera is equipped with a radiomodem, it functions within the System as an independent device that can be controlled
12

individually. Its possible to set which radio sensors will activate the camera and for how long it
should run when activated.
After the activation signal is received from an inbuilt modem, the camera processor
activates the camera and video data channel. The camera uses a 2.4 GHz one-way channel. The
camera starts transmitting video data for a set period of time and then goes into standby
mode.
