Russian Ministry of Defense will purchase Strelets-Watch bracelets for 400 million rubles
For the first time, this complex was shown at the Integrated Security International Salon in 2014. Then it was presented in two forms: “Sentry”, which was intended for the protection of stationary objects of the Ministry of Defense of Russia, and “Checkpoint” - for the protection of mobile objects and the checkpoint itself. For the second time, the set of technical devices “Strelets” was already shown at the Interpolitex-2015 exhibition in Moscow, in the same year, the Strelets-watch was adopted by the Russian army (Order of the RF Minister of Defense 2015, No. XXUMX).
The complex “Sagittarius-hour” is a bracelet that the watch puts on his hand, this bracelet is associated with a command console. In the event of a contingency situation, all information is promptly received by the higher-level commanders via secure digital communication channels, including information about the immobility of the fighter during 45 seconds or the fact of removing the bracelet. The developers from St. Petersburg presented at the Interpolitech a modernized version of their bracelet. Now, these smart watch-bracelets are not only able to transmit to commanders information about where his fighters are, whether they breathe, they have received the positioning function on the ground. Bracelet "Sagittarius-Hour" is able to remember the time and point of collection and at the right time pave the way to it. This function should especially appeal to Russian paratroopers, who are often landed in an unfamiliar area. It is impossible to drown out such clocks, as they use in their work Russian communication protocols constituting a state secret.
A feature of this technical complex is that it operates at a distance of 50 kilometers from the command console, providing a confident and stable connection. A module of the domestic navigation satellite satellite positioning system GLONASS was built into each bracelet, which allows you to track the location of each guard in real time. It is also reported that the Strelets-hour bracelet is able to work at ambient temperatures up to -50 degrees Celsius.
Russian paratroopers have already experienced the novelty. According to the press service of the Eastern Military District, during parachute jumps from Mi-8AMTSH helicopters at the Baranovsky proving ground in Primorye in February 2016, the guards airborne assault brigade of the Airborne Forces conducted a test of the alarm-calling alarm system, personal warning and navigation under name "Sagittarius-Watch", which resembles an ordinary wrist watch. After landing, the paratroopers using this device in a matter of seconds were able to determine their location, as well as the place of collection.
At the Army-2015 military-technical forum, the success of St. Petersburg developers was noted by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. In October of the same year, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu made a proposal to test the Strelets-Hour watch bracelets in the Arctic. For these purposes, a special model of bracelets was made. Also, as noted above, the kit was successfully tested by paratroopers of the Eastern Military District. In addition, the Strelets-Hour Watch complex is used to guard the Moscow National Center for Defense Management of Russia. The life of such bracelets, according to the manufacturer, is 10 years.
According to the publication Life, particularly advanced complexes will receive the Crimea, which is today at risk, there is a threat of penetration of the "guests" from the territory of Ukraine to the peninsula. A bracelet that looks like an ordinary watch is attached to the hand of a soldier who carries guard duty. The gadget is directly connected to the commander’s console: all the necessary information about the health and location of the sentry guards flocks to the commander. If on the territory of the military unit outsiders penetrate or abnormal situations occur (for example, the seizure of guards hostages), a fighter with a Strelets-Hourly bracelet can silently press a special button, and his comrades will come to his aid in a short time. The main purpose of the miracle bracelet is to control the situation at the protected objects, to collect and monitor information on the health status of the control participants and the security lines. For example, if an intruder is detected at the object using a bracelet, you can give an alarm to the guard and the garrison daily along. The complex is able to determine the movement of the offender, the place and time of the violation. He is able to provide access control and the conditions necessary for carrying the guard duty.
[justify] It is curious that out of the 396 million rubles allocated for the purchase of bracelets, 85 million are intended for equipping military units located in the Crimea with sets. For example, a 60-band alarm system kit (STVS) will go to the military units of the Crimean naval base, which was recreated on the peninsula in 2014 after it was annexed to the Russian Federation. At the same time, the equipment for the Republic of Crimea is more functional. The set for the Crimea includes a system of alarm and call signaling and personal operational notification of military personnel; detection and protection systems against penetration into the internal territory and along the perimeter of buildings and structures; ACS - access control and management system; NSKU - network computer control system; APS - automatic fire alarm system.
The other parts of the Russian army will receive only an integral part of the entire complex - the PSTS system, which is able to provide a hidden alarm signal from a soldier, control of his location and movements, as well as a hidden notification of his problems (for example, in the event of an attack) of the commander and comrades. 87 of such kits should go to 70 military units, as well as to training centers throughout Russia. Experts interviewed by Life, said that the number of sentries at Russian military sites depends on their specifics. For example, a warehouse with ammunition does not require a large number of sentries, but the situation is completely different if we have a fleet of vehicles. Usually, the equipment is located on a fairly large area, where the movement of the sentries is precisely defined. At such facilities need more security posts.
“Each of the configurations is determined by a set of equipment. Since there can be 10 posts in one military unit, but the distance between them will not be 200 meters, but 5 kilometers, so the number and composition of equipment will be such as to reach radio communications up to these 5 kilometers. The Russian Ministry of Defense decides for themselves how many guards and posts they have, how many bracelets they may need, ”life journalists were told.
