NOVOSIBIRSK, October 20 (Itar-Tass) —— Norilsk’s Alykel is Russia’s first airport to install a modern Russian-made video control system, which spots in real time criminals and wanted persons in heavy passenger flows without mistake.
The complex was designed at Yekaterinburg’s MTK Profit Company, spokesman of the Siberian Federal District’s branch of transport police Timur Kurbangaleyev said on Thursday. The ‘electronic guard’ identifies faces biometrically. High resolution cameras fix an object by 16 control dots. As for a face, even six matching parameters are sufficient to prove that the camera spots the person wanted.
“Changed look, like hairstyle, beard, moustache, and scars or any other physical effects, do not influence at all the result,” Kurbangaleyev said.
If a photo of a person is filed in police databases, the system sends an alert to the operator and the police.
The modern complex, installed at the airport of Norilsk a month earlier, was tested successfully and proved its effectiveness: the police detained at the airport five persons who had been wanted at the regional and federal levels. One of them had been wanted by the police of Mordovia for robbery.
The transport police reports about technical options for installation of the new system both in big and small airports, railway stations, but interest from only the police is not sufficient. There should be interest from local authorities.
“For example, the launch of the complex at the Alykel airport was possible due to active support from Norilsk’s administration,” head of transport police in the Siberian Federal District Arkady Ivanov said. “The local authorities realised that aviation is the only kind of transport, which allows having ongoing connection with Russia’s regions, and allocated three million roubles for purchase of the modern equipment.”
“Now, we may say that we have a reliable outpost in the most northern part of the territory, which Siberia’s transport police are serving,” he added.
