By order of the Russian Federal State Institution Directorate for Construction and Operation of Rosgranitsa Facilities (Rosgranstroy), the Ruselectronics holding has equipped checkpoints across the state border of Russia with stationary and portable thermal imagers to ensure sanitary and quarantine control in order to counter the spread of COVID-19. 

In accordance with the National Plan for the Prevention of the Importation and Spread of New Coronavirus Infection in Russia, The Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing (Rospotrebnadzor) has identified a list of 138 checkpoints across the state border that require equipping or retrofitting with stationary or portable thermal imagers. 

Ruselectronics supplied 245 thermal imaging systems with high sensitivity (measurement error of less than 0.03 degrees). Stationary assets make it possible to automatically detect people with an elevated body temperature, and portable devices are used for individual monitoring. Sheremetyevo, Vnukovo, Domodedovo, Pulkovo airports and air fields in Khabarovsk, Novosibirsk, Kazan and others, as well as road border crossings, seaports and railway stations were equipped with new equipment. 

“Equipping checkpoints with portable thermal imagers was completed in October and stationary ones installed by mid-December. The equipment was delivered in full and on time”, Rosgranstroy reported. “The use of new high-tech devices will increase the level of protection against the penetration and spread of viral infections, including COVID-19.”
