Lesnoy Dozor (Russian: Лесной Дозор, literally, “Forest Watch”) is a project for the online and offline observation of wooded areas and early detection of forest fires. The project was supported by the Russian "Silicon Valley", the Skolkovo innovation center,[1] 10 scientific start-ups worked on the program.[2]

The system was developed and implemented by DiSiCon LLC – a scientific company.

Architecture[edit]

Various types of sensors (video and infrared cameras, thermal observation devices, etc.) are placed on towers (fire detection or mobile radio towers) with a power supply. They are controlled via the Internet and provide rotation, digital zoom and videotape recording. One operator can control about 10 sensors.[3]

Recognition[edit]

On 7 July 2011 the system was presented to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev at an international educational forum Seliger, who gave his official support.[4] The system covers 20 regions of Russia.[3]
