The Border federal targeted program was launched to protect the borders from the Caspian Sea to the Black Sea. To build the border posts, the Border Service needed the tools for detection of unauthorized border crossing. The principle of the UGS Mk1 system operation met their needs. However it required some modifications with regards to specific requirements. The Border Service needed a system with extensive coverage, capable to protect tens of kilometers of the border, collect data and transmit them to a remote post. Such a complicated system required two-way connection with the sensors to enable their remote configuration. Besides, the sensor lifetime before battery replacement had to be increased up to several months.
The Uniscan Research team developed a UGS Mk2 system. It included a two-way radio channel with a special operation algorithm that made is possible to decrease power consumption and provide years of operation without battery replacement.
The radio channel allowed transmitting a little amount of data both ways with extremely low power consumption. This was accomplished by modifying it for a specific purpose and eliminating the other functions. This autonomous radio channel was a know-how of Uniscan Research.
One more innovation in UGS Mk2 was the concept of multi-sensor. Sensors of different types were replaced by a multi-sensor that worked as a seismic sensor, a break-wire sensor and a repeater at the same time. Apart from the multi-sensor, the system included a portable receiver and a control panel (PC or laptop).
