ISTC Project Wins Hitachi Kokusai Electric Inc’s ‘The Best Technology Development of the Year 2007’ Award
Hitachi Kokusai Electric Inc, an ISTC Partner since 2004, has announced that the ISTC project which is jointly being developed with the Russian State Scientific Center for Robotics and Technical Cybernetic (RSSCRTC), Saint Petersburg, has won their award, “The Best Technology Development of the Year 2007”.
During a visit to the St Petersburg Institute, Hitachi Kokusai President, Mr. Kunio Hasegawa, congratulated the project team on their success and confirmed the company’s intention to continue its cooperative relationship with the Institute. The visit of Mr. Hasegawa to Russia followed a joint workshop which was devised and supported by the ISTC and the project participants from Japan and Russia. He reviewed the technological and commercial results of the project and examined possible improvements to the security and threat detection technology that had been created. With over 50 systems delivered to customers in Japan, the device, which protects infrastructure or inpiduals against the risk of terrorism, crime, or malicious intent, is proving to be one of ISTC’s most commercially accomplished projects.
ISTC congratulates the joint project team from Hitachi Kokusai Electric Inc and the Russian State Scientific Center for Robotics and Technical Cybernetic on their success.

ISTC Partner Project # 3148p -Software-Hardware Complex for Detection and Threat Prevention of Acts of Terrorism
Institute: Russian State Scientific Center for Robotics and Technical Cybernetic, Saint-Petersburg, Russia
Partner: Hitachi Kokusai Electric Inc., Japan
The Purpose of the Project is to protect infrastructure or inpiduals against the risk of terrorism, crime or malicious intent.
The Aim of the Project is to create an integrated software and hardware system able to protect buildings of critical or national importance that, if destroyed, would have serious impact on population health, safety, security or economic well-being. The system is particularly required to safeguard governmental institutions and infrastructure against possible acts of terrorism, and to detect unauthorized intrusion into closed zones or private property.
Both systems will immediately notify relevant authorities or persons of potential intrusion.
Two types of alarm system are to be developed:
- An alarm system for the protection of critical infrastructure. The system, based on the application of stereovision, will interact with other applications such as range finders and intelligent computer software to identify inpiduals or objects of a suspicious character.
- An alarm system for civil application, protecting private houses, offices, stores, cottages, garages. The system will identify possible intrusion into a property in land and detect any invader.
Uniqueness of the Project: Pioneering developments enable intruder detection against the background of a changing physical environment (moving grass and trees, rough sea) and changing light (sun covered by clouds, moving car lights, street illumination). Newly developed technologies for intruder recognition, coupled with intelligent software analysis of a potential suspicious character, are brought together in this challenging project with the aim of creating a safer, more secure environment.
