Critical infrastructure like electric power plants, oil refineries, dams, reservoirs etc. form the backbone of a country. In addition to these, there are key establishments like government offices and industries, Technology parks, heritage and religious sites, all of which are economic and social assets of a country and any harm to these could significantly affect the functioning of the country.
CIPro, the Critical Infrastructure Protection solutions from Mistral integrates and manages all resources vital to the protection of these assets. These solutions can be deployed by State Police, CRPF, CISF, Coast Guard and RAF for securing disputed religious sites, sensitive Government offices, Sea-ports, Oil Refineries & Pipelines, Nuclear Power Plants, Mines, etc.
The CIPro solution from Mistral is built around the C4ISR concept and consists of two components: the sensor network and the command and control network.
The Sensor Network
The sensor network consists of devices that aim to control the entry and movement of individuals and entities within the premises of the critical infrastructure, and to monitor the activities of those individuals and entities that have and gain access to the premises.
The command and control network picks up the inputs from the sensor network, places them in a cartographic representation of the facility/premises, allows communication between emergency response units, and outlines emergency response protocols for these units to follow.
The Command and Control Network
It allows a user to:
Access a Common Operational Picture (COP) of the surveillance and emergency response infrastructure at the premises
Represent response units and sensors on a map, and interact with them for further information
Transparently and seamlessly facilitate communication amongst the various emergency response units and the control centre
Automate emergency response tasks and guide participants in the implementation of emergency response protocols
