    Some standardized peculiarity in defining the processes / stages providing input data for Intelligent Security Systems development – peripheral security systems

    Security & Future, Vol. 5 (2021), Issue 1, pg(s) 3-6

    The creation of an intelligent security environment is one of the main trends in the coming years, as security technologies will be a significant part of the developed systems, incl. physical protection and system integration systems will play a key role in d ata collection to ensure critical infrastructure (CI) security. Organizations equipped with intelligent security systems provide increased operational efficiency by using system integration for data collection and allow systems to “communicate” and work in tandem to provide real-time information for emergency preparedness or execution.
    In addition, data collected from advanced security technologies can be analyzed by system integrators to help senior CI management better understand how their organization works and make improvements based on the information gathered. Understanding the value of connecting different physical security systems, incl. and CI peripheral security systems, as well as ways to integrate them with other systems, is a key component in developing a smarter and more secure facility. Whether applying new CI solutions or upgrading compatibility solutions, system integration offers a variety of cost options that meet the specific needs of the business environment.
    Last but not least, threat information is used to determine the security regime of the CI as a basis for developing common requirements and performance targets, as well as criteria for assessing the conformity or effectiveness of physical protection systems. Modern standardized approaches have been developed, summarizing the good international practices, for determining the goals and / or requirements for physical protection, in accordance with the specifics of CI and for preventing any level of potential impact both in the sites and for the population in the neighboring territories. The development of requirements for peripheral security systems as an element of intelligent CI security systems and their integration in the CI as early as possible is the subject of this publication.

    Compatibility between design of mechatronic systems for critical infrastructure security and technological readiness levels

    Security & Future, Vol. 4 (2020), Issue 3, pg(s) 111-114

    With a high degree of reliability we could say that modern products and systems in the field of critical infrastructure security are mechatronic, as they are complete mechanical systems with fully integrated electronics, intelligent control system and information technology. At the same time, the concept of Technology Readiness Levels has become an important project management tool that facilitates communication and common understanding between technology manufacturers and developers, customers and managers.
    Defining and implementing the compatibility approach between the stages of development of mechatronic security systems of CI and TRLs is one of the possible correct ways to maintain an adequate security levels for national CI, providing prevention and counteraction against contemporary risks.

    Possible approach for developing a model of intelligent security system applicable in its design in the quasar center of competence

    Security & Future, Vol. 4 (2020), Issue 2, pg(s) 47-50

    Through the development and operation of intelligent security systems, with a focus on critical infrastructure, it is expected to improve the security of the population in our country. This process finds real dimensions in the goals and tasks of the centers of competence, which are in the process of construction during the current period. A key element contributing to the proper functioning of intelligent security systems is its design, in accordance with the specifics of the security environment.
    Precisely the synergy of the efforts of the scientific, educational and industrial communities for the development of contemporary models of security systems, structured within the functional scope of the QUASAR competence center, is the basis of this article.

    Opportunities for determining factors affecting the development of intelligent security systems models

    Security & Future, Vol. 4 (2020), Issue 1, pg(s) 6-9

    Contemporary security challenges require the creation of a continuous and manageable process that guarantees the survival and sustainability of the organization’s core activities before, during and after a devastating event. This means that it is necessary to manage the organization’s activities, resources, personnel, impact on its functioning and countless risks. Significant contribution in this direction provides intelligent security systems.
    Thanks to rapid technological progress it is possible to be developed sophisticated security systems able to integrate heterogeneous sources that can monitor, control and manage the security environment of the organization, which is potentially at risk. But the combination of different technologies is not sufficient to significantly increase the level of security and the approach to the integrity of system elements, and compatibility with other systems management organization are basic factors for success in this direction.

    Some approaches to the non-destructive control of composite materials used in the aerospace industry

    Trans Motauto World, Vol. 5 (2020), Issue 1, pg(s) 9-12

    One of the priority areas for the use of composite materials is the aerospace industry. A number of evaluations have shown that their use in the manufacture of modern aircraft and helicopters lead to a reduction in weight of the respective parts with 20-30% compared to the same manufactured from conventional materials. In this case, an increase in the resistance of the respective part to external influences is usually achieved, and in many cases a decrease in its production cost.
    The increasing use of composite materials in the aerospace industry requires analyzing options for their diagnosis and non-destructive examination of their quality, taking into account their specific features. Because of the enormous diversity and complexity composition for composite materials, various methods of diagnosis have different efficiencies for different types of composites. In many cases, composites contain highly porous or fibrous layers, which results in a strong attenuation of the acoustic waves and render the acoustic method inapplicable to their non-destructive control. In these and other cases, the use of emerging methods for their non-destructive ultra-high frequency (microwave) diagnostics is of interest.
