Parts of SAMS

Radar system automatically tracks ARTS

Radar device is an important part of ARTS system, the system allows radar handling, releasing raw video signals and images, monitoring operation of radar and transfer data over IP network protocols.

Sensor management

Function of sensor management controls all non- photoelectric sensors including radar monitoring systems, ground sensors (seismic sensors, magnetic sensors, infrared sensors, etc.), gun detection system, and other receiver-transmitter.

Sensor management has open mechanisms for different monitoring source protocols. These monitoring protocols can be entered into the system easily. The main function of sensor management is to control and manage sensors, including the geo-location of each sensor, comparison and aggregation of the sensor’s tracking data and the distribution of the sensor data, and alerts. Sensor management sends sensor data to the reference map display screen C2DB for operators.

Camera Information System – CIS

Camera Information System (CIS) is responsible for managing photoelectric cameras and video encoders, if required in the system. It also manages the operation access to the camera system and prevents conflicts from multiple operators while simultaneously controlling a camera. Operators with higher access rights will be given the main control when there is more than one regulatory requirement for the camera system. Ultra has developed a video encoder, sensor of IP routing (SIPR), to use when video output is necessary to meet military standards for storage and distribution.

System Config Client

System Config Client (SCC) is a centralized management application for all requirements in system configuration and sensor. Based on plug-in model, SCC configures the subsystem into an only tree structure that fits into each specific system. As the only application, it simplifies training as well as system operation for users.

Software of system condition

SAMS uses SNMP (Simple Netword Management Protocol). Each part of SAMS provides the status via SNMP. SNMP is a protocol that allows information about condition of devices in the system to be managed according to a standard rule. All conditions of sensors which do not support are notified via SNMP. SAMS SNMP machine integrates with SNMP systems of the third party such as Cisco, Juniper, HP…

 Command & Control Database System (C2DB)

C2DB system is based on a reference map system, using a server-client model for receiving, managing, displaying and storing (in the system or using databases of SQL, Oracle…) direct data and data stored from sensors and activity information. C2DB supports many different map formats including Raster (ARCS/BSB/NOAA), S57 Edition 3 ENC/WVS/AML, MapTech, VPF, DNC, V Map, GRP, NTF, Shape, VTF, Continuous Raster, DTED, OS Master Map, ESRI, Geo-Tiff and maps generated from collected data or satellite maps.

C2DB can be configured to manage data to allow multiple operators working at different stations, viewing and using all data sources according to user permissions. C2DB applications support the display of data from a variety of sensors such as photovoltaics, radar, ground sensors (sound and seismic),…Along with GPS, UHF/VHF, Tetra and sensor fences, it also supports receivers to track enemy and us.

Sensors are connected to the system via a sensor management system and are shown visually on the map display system of SAMS. The main system location is displayed on the map display screen and the system also shows the position and direction/arc of the area monitored by the sensors. When the radar tracking object enters the alarm area, or if a ground sensor alarm is triggered, alarm system C2DB displays this alarm and can automatically control another camera or sensor to coordinate monitoring.

Also C2DB system is used to display geographic information of working areas and can display data points, routes and boundary areas, such as “No go” areas or Areas of interest.

 Command & Control Video Wall System (C2VW)

C2DB system is capable of displaying video along with command and control information/situational awareness. However, when a large number of videos are requested to be displayed and displayed at the same time, it is time that a video management system is required. Command & Control Video Wall (C2VW) is used to display multiple videos.

 Network Data Recorder (NDR)

All photoelectric video formats is recorded in the compression format of H.264/MPEG-4, linked to audio data and other data fields in NDR, ready for playback. NDR can record video and other data in many different formats.

Monitor the condition of the system

The condition of the system is exported on the network via the open standard protocol -SNMP. This helps the display system to collect all monitoring information from built-in alarm system as well as additional monitoring systems of the third party.

SNMP displays all line-replaceable units (LRUs) in the system. The screen also displays problematic devices (a slash in red). When there are warnings, users can click on the icon and find detailed information about the problem (broken device/loss of signal…). Using SNMP allows third-party devices to display on the monitoring graph in case they also use the same open standard protocol. If the device does not support SNMP but still provides its status, C2DB software can collect and report that data, so all data of system condition will be normalized with SNMP protocol.
