The LRS 2000 Surveillance System has been developed by Security Design Associates
to protect borders against infiltration, smuggling and human trafficking. The high
performance camera and lens is capable of reading a vehicle number plate at up to 1.2km,
recognising a known human face at up to 2.4km, and spotting human activity at up
to 12km. During daylight the LRS 2000 provides high-resolution colour pictures and
at night monochrome pictures with the equivalent performance of image intensifier cameras.
Video signals can be encrypted, digitised and compressed for transmission via satellite or
other telecommunications means.
The LRS 1000 gives the appearance of a standard CCTV camera, however it is->
->equipped with a high performance lens/camera
combination. The system is ideal for city and large area site surveillance and is
capable of detecting and tracking an individual at ranges in excess of 3.3km.
Where 24-hour capability is required the system has the sensitivity of a first generation
Asia's new power balance
THE EMERGENCE of a post-Soviet world in which the United States is the only
superpower is causing shifts in the balance of power in Asia.
Russia and China, both fearful of losing ground to America, have converged, while smaller and less heavily armed countries worry about
China's growing regional influence and strengthen their ties. FOREIGN REPORT reveals the latest move.
The Modular Cobra from Thales Acoustics is a range of lightweight audio
ancillary equipment for police firearms officers. The system can be reconfigured to suit
specific types of operation for firearm users including rapid intervention, close rural
observation and siege/hostage containment. The components are all fully strengthened to
withstand rough usage and the extreme environments that may be encountered during police
operations. The system is optimised for minimum weight, comfort and compatibility with helmets,
respirators and other personal equipment. The system was originally based on the lightweight
Cobra headset and has been extended to include noise excluding headsets.
