Partners in Siberia announce ?high-accuracy? guard radarsTUSUR and Mikran, two partners in Siberia?s Tomsk, have announced plans to jointly develop by 2016 their new high-accuracy radars for guard systems.

Tomsk State University of Control Systems and Radio Electronics (TUSUR) in Siberia and Mikran, a private Tomsk company, have announced plans to jointly develop by 2016 their new high-accuracy radars for guard systems which would pin down objects and follow their movements, Russian news agency RIA Novosti reports citing a Mikran source. Under plans, the partners will take three years to develop and begin production of millimeter range radars and integrated surveillance systems for specific areas. The overall tab for the project is estimated to be around $12m. The future radars are expected to enable ?initial scanning of a territory with microwave radio signals and the automatic detection and tracking of objects,? Mikran said. The Tomsk company also announced that to make radar sensors and monitoring systems, it will use its own proprietary electronic components. Set up in 1991, Mikran has been focusing on the manufacture of telecom equipment, microwave range control instrumentation, radars, security systems, and other areas...
