The Concern Avtomatika, an affiliate of the Rostec State Corporation, has developed and successfully tested a prototype of a monitoring system that will control the power supply at the infrastructure facilities during the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The project is being implemented under a trilateral agreement between the Situation Analysis Centre (SAC) of the Ministry of Energy of Russia, The Concern Avtomatika and the All-Russian Civil Defense and Emergencies Research institute of Emergency Control Ministry of Russia.
The information analysis system is being developed to control the power supply at the infrastructure facilities during special nationwide events. It allows to record and track incidents that could result in an interruption of power supply, and monitor the mass and social media in online mode to identify any information on emergency situations. Besides, it is also capable of communicating the information on interruptions of power supply to emergency response units in real-time mode. The guaranteed time of delivery of source data on any contingencies is up to 15 minutes.
The system was approved during the 2018 presidential election – it enabled to monitor the power supply in electoral districts and election committees and respond quickly to the incidents on the election day. During the FIFA World Cup the system will be deployed to control the power supply at sports venues – training camps and stadiums.
"The system uses an entire package of newly developed products of the Radio-Electronic Cluster of Rostec – from electronic components and units to hardware systems and own-produced software," said Sergey Kulikov, Industrial Director of the State Corporation's Radio-Electronic Cluster.
