Lesnoy Dozor

Company DiSiCon develops and implements terrestrial remote surveillance system "Lesnoy Dozor" designed to observe large forest areas.

System "Lesnoy Dozor" (transl. — "Forest Watch") is an automated forest fire early warning system. It is designed for prevention and early detection of forest fires in online mode

In this context such phrases as forest fire early warning system, system for early detection of forest fires, remote sensor-based system, optical sensor system (OSS) could be regarded as the synonims though strictly speaking they are not.
Characteristics of the System
• Detection accuracy - up to 250 m,
• Coverage range detection - within 30 km
• Direction detection accuracy – 0.5°
• Time to alert - up to 10 minutes. Depends on the costumer's server power
• Possibility of satellite data integration
• Possibility of weather data integration
• Data integration from other information sources
• Possibility of efficient scaling and broadening of the system for coverage range extension.
• Possibility to get information on mobile phones
• Automatic detection of potentially dangerous objects: smoke and flame.
The System Works as Follows
Virtually sensors (cameras, infrared cameras, thermal imagers) are placed at high-rise buildings with power supply. They have reliable zoom characteristics and are controlled via the Internet (rotation, zoom, videotape recording, etc.). At any place (convenient for the customer) control center is established (high-speed Internet connection is the single requirement). In the control center there is an operator, who takes out observations with the help of the sensors and special software. One operator can control about 10 sensors. In addition the system can distribute workload among video operators — this measure increases fire detection or detection of smoke clouds in general.

The concept of the system is based on the idea of client-server application usage which service a network of remotely controlled sensors connected to the server and control center with different communication channels.

The main innovative elements of our system — software "Lesnoy Dozor" (transl. — "Forest Watch") and the service. The software controls the entire system, helps to detects forest fires and determine fire coordinates automatically. Information from the sensors is transmitted to the operator at the station or is server pre-processed.

Why Now?

The creation and deployment of optical sensor systems (and "Lesnoy Dozor" is one of them) became possible only in the last few years. This was due to the fact that:

• the number of cellular towers became enough to cover fire areas;
• the prices for the broadband access to the Internet have been sufficiently reduced. This allows sensors transmit large amounts of video data to the computers in the control center online;
• the cost of wireless communication equipment which can transmit data over large distances was reduced;
• the price of powerful computers have fallen down. These PCs process video data quickly and increase the reliability of the system on the whole.

System for early detection of forest fires "Lesnoy Dozor" can be used in a forestry territory and in the territory of a region.

Cameras were firstly used to recognize forest fires at the beginning of the XXI century. However most of the systems of that time were just ordinary cameras with a screen and the cameraman was supposed to be close to the towers of video monitoring. Such systems could be met even now but they are not quite suitable for forest fires detection even in the territory of one forestry, not to mention the whole region.

Robotized Server
This is a server which performs a number of important functions as a part of intelligent sensory system Lesnoy Dozor. Among these functions there are:
• control of a set of cameras (sensors) thar help to effect forest video surveillance including the means of special patrolling routes;
• control the subsystem of computer vision for flame and smoke search;
• provide users with recomendations informing them about potentially dangerous objects (POO).

Company`s achievements
• System is in use by more than 30 regions of Russia (2015)
• Highest startup rating AAA given by RSR
• The project was included into the all Russian list of innovative products that are recommended to use in Russia (2012)
• Company becomes the resident of innovation center “Skolkovo” (march 2012)
• Ministry of Emergency of Russian Federation Sergey Shoygu highly appreciate the system at Day of innovations and new technologies in Ministry of Emergency (may 2011)
• Silver medal of 39thFirst place in open contest “Volga region –territory of safety”
• Winner of Russian Venture Fair 2010
• Start Up of the year 2010 “Best socially important project”
