OBSERVATION ARMORED TOWER "ARKONA"


Goal

The tower is designed for permanent installation at checkpoints and protected perimeters of strategically important facilities to monitor the surrounding area and to detect potential enemy.

Tower provides:

  • non-stop all-round view of the approaches to the guard post;

  • protection of personnel from injury in small arms;

  • protection from falling grenades in vulnerable tower locations;

  • shelter of personnel at the bottom of the tower (shelter cabin) at armed attack;

  • maintaining a circular fire from both tower cabins;

  • impact on offenders with powerful sound pulse (optional);

  • automatic discharge system of propellant gases from the tower cabin;

  • guard contact (with phone and speakerphone, a panic button, video surveillance in the cabin);

  • maintaining of comfortable conditions for guard due to air-conditioning system, heating and floor heating;

  • autonomous power supply of tower equipment.

Design

The tower structure is made in the form of a tetrahedron with a hipped roof, mounted on concrete foundations (concrete platform) by means of flanges with fastening anchors.


The body, door and cabin sash loopholes are made of special steel sheet thickness of 6,5 ± 0,2 mm providing 5 security class for bullet resistance for welded semi-automatic arc welding. The special steel sheet joints (armor plates) are protected from shooting with steel plates on the outside and with steel profiles inside.


Tests on the armored tower fragments for bulletproof are carried out according to GOST R 51112-97, GOST R 50941-96, GOST R 51136-98.


Guard cabin internal surfaces and shelter cabin cabins have no-rebound siding glass magnesium panels that are resistant to fragment fracture under shots impacts.


Security door opens outward and is equipped with a mechanical shot resistant mortise lock as well as the powered latch bolt to lock from the inside.


Bulletproof glass complies with the requirements of GOST R 51136-98 and confirmed by examination protocol №1115 / IC-03 and the certificate of conformity.

Tower equipment

  • emergency evacuation area from guard cabin (pole for the descent, protected by bulletproof sheets);

  • spotlight with turning mechanism controlled from the guard cabin;

  • telephone communications;

  • alarm system in the guard cabin and shelter cabin;

  • sensors for doors opening, hatch and shelter cabin for the guard control;

  • video camera surveillance for guards (with IR illumination);

  • fire alarm, fire extinguisher;

  • electric heating appliances (heated floor);

  • system of automatic ventilation;

  • lighting equipment;

  • uninterruptable power source;

  • lightning protection;

  • first aid kit.

Acoustic cannon

Acoustic cannon – a device of non-lethal effects on the offender with directional sound stream.

Directional sound stream forces the offender immediately to cease attempts to penetrate the protected area. Located within the established acoustic cannon “stream” an offender is not able to determine the direction of sound – he feels that the sound is born in his head, that causes panic and disorientation in space.


“ARKONA” is the only Russian armored tower equipped with an acoustic cannon.

SECURITY:


  • The impact of the acoustic cannon is non-lethal and do not cause long-term harm to human health.

  • Directional sound stream has the form of a stream with a narrow opening angle (5 degrees) allowing to work directly with the offender and not to harm other people.

  • Acoustic cannon is used by the secret services for a long time, its impact on human being is widely studied and predictable.

FEATURES:


  • the formation of a focused stream of sound;

  • aim and control panel to direct the sound stream on the offender;

  • high speed aiming;

  • self aiming;

  • cannon remote control from guard cabin;

  • It can be used for clear voice command at distance in a high background noise.

Independent based solar power plant

Autonomous power plant on the basis of solar cells is designed to provide armored tower equipment with power in case the main power source failure.


Built-in inverter-DC converter 12 to AC 220 V with a battery of 150 Ah provides autonomous operation of armored tower lighting equipment for 1.5 hours.


The use of autonomous power as the main power source is possible in areas with a predominance of sunny weather.
