Chelyabinsk Pipe Rolling Plant Pilots Kaspersky Anti Drone System
ChTPZ Group’s Chelyabinsk Pipe Rolling Plant has carried out pilot tests of the Kaspersky anti drones systems. The pilot launch, the purpose of which was to test the hardware and software complex in critical infrastructure and to develop possible scenarios for protection against drone attacks, took place over the territory of the flagship Vysota 239 large-diameter pipe production shop. Thanks to neural networks and a classification module implemented in the Kaspersky Antidrone software and hardware complex, the drones were immediately detected when they tried to cross the protected perimeter and were forcibly sent to the take-off point. The newest version of the Kaspersky Antidrone system with an integrated radio frequency detection module from Rohde & Schwarz participated in the pilot test.
Such a complex allows detecting unmanned aerial vehicles at a distance of up to 4,000 meters, determining its model, localizing the pilot's location and transmitting data to the interface. The system can work autonomously and start detecting from the moment the drone is turned on. When a drone tries to cross the protective perimeter, no harm is done to the device: the radio signal neutralization module blocks the drone's communication with the control panel and forces it to return to the starting point or make a soft landing at the point where communication with the operator is lost.
In 2020 Mr Evgeny Kaspersky, a Russian programmer, one of the world's leading experts in the field of information security, co-founder and head of Kaspersky Lab, together with his team visited the Vysota 239 workshop and the ETERNO plant. In particular, thanks to this visit, the company decided to test the new Kaspersky Antidrone complex at the Chelyabinsk Pipe-Rolling Plant.
The ChTPZ Group pays special attention to ensuring the safety of production and its industrial facilities. Based on the results of successful testing, we can talk about the efficiency of using this system, and in the future we are considering the possibility of using the Kaspersky Antidrone complex at the enterprises of the ChTPZ Group.
