BLAGOVESHCHENSK, June 30. /TASS/. The facilities of the Vostochny cosmodrome under construction in the Russian Far East will be equipped with modern security systems. This will ensure the highest security level with the use of state-of-the-art technologies, the press service of Dalspetsstroy, a state-run agency affiliated to Russia’s Federal Special Construction Agency (Spetsstroy) said on Tuesday.
"Specialists of Spetsstroy are completing the construction of checkpoints, the installation of perimeter wire fences of the launch and technical complexes. All this allows to install high-tech new generation equipment needed for ensuring safety of the Vostochny facilities," the press service said.
They are installing TV surveillance systems, access control and burglar alarm systems, telecommunication networks and information protection systems.
"The Vostochny project does not stipulate the construction of high concrete fences or barbed wire. Their functions are transferred to the "smart" security systems capable of ensuring 100-percent safety of both the facilities and the staff," Dalspetsstroy said.
The Vostochny cosmodrome construction began near the town of Uglegorsk in the Amur region in 2010. It will become the country’s first civilian spaceport ensuring Russia’s full access to outer space. The first launch from the Vostochny spaceport is planned to be carried out in late 2015.
