During the military campaigns in Chechnya, militants kept on shelling garrisons at the night time. We had to develop a compact mobile device that would be able to detect hazards and inform the soldiers. The devices had to be versatile and work in various types of environment including fields, woods, and mountains.
We developed UGS Mk1 mobile system on the basis of seismic sensor and a one-way radio channel. The system consisted of three seismic sensors, a break-wire sensor and a paging device for a soldier. It was a mobile and rapidly deployable system that efficiently secured the troops during short-time missions and ensured protection for small areas. Besides, the system used an open frequency range.
The Uniscan Research team kept adopting the system to various soils and operation conditions. As a result the system became a versatile device that detected hazards in any indoor and outdoor environment (mountains, plains) with equal efficiency.
