INTERPOLITEX industry forum has been up to the mark and has set and maintained high standards of effective work and high professional level of the participants.
The exhibition was held in pursuance of the Decree of the Russian Government. The fact underscores its significance for security and power-wielding agencies and the manufacturers of the security products in demand by the abovementioned organisations. The event was organized by the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation, Russian Federal Security Service and Bizon Exhibition Companies Group (ECG OVK Bizon).
The primary goal of the exhibition is introduction, implementation and adoption of innovation technologies in the law enforcement activities of the Ministry of Internal Affairs as well as other agencies, security and intelligence services units and making them part of the equipment of the organisations that have civil safety and security as their field of responsibility.
The honorary right to inaugurate the anniversary exhibition INTERPOLITEX 2016 was assigned to the First Deputy Minister of internal Affairs of the Russian Federation, Police Colonel General, Mr. Alexander Gorovoy. Mr. Gorovoy addressed the audience as ‘colleagues’ in his opening speech thereby bringing to the fore the common interest of everybody present in the provision of national security and civil safety.
On greeting the particupants, Mr. Gorovoy expressed confidence that the INTERPOLITEX 20th anniversary exhibition will be as successful and productive as the previous editions.
In recent years the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs divisions and units has been undergoing technical reequipment and upgrading, stressed Mr. Gorovoy,-so the Ministry plans to combine the use of the ystems and equipment in service with innovations and advanced solutions offered by the manufacturers. Owing to and using the achievements of the electronic and technological industry of the Russian Federation the Ministry launched a comprehensive programme of practical implementation and adoption of solutions, equipment and systems offered to us by the designers and manufacturers four years ago. We owe a lot to the INTERPOLITEX exhibition in this regard. Information and Management Integrated System of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs, Electronic Document Flow Management System and Data Processing Centre have been developed. Also, GLONASS Global Navigation Satellite System is in full operation (112 is a universal emergency call number), Safe City hardware and software system and quite a few other solutions. I hope we shall have an opportunity to get acquainted with the latest cutting-edge systems, equipment and solutions offered by domestic and foreign enterprises as well as consider and evaluate from all angles the specifications, technical capabilities and the practical efficiency of use of the proposed solutions and equipment with regard to their potential in respect of the Ministry of Interior goals and purposes.
According to the General, the network of high-power servers unveiled earlier during one of the INTERPOLITEX exhibition editions allowed for the establishment of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Data Processing Center with respective insertion and integration of the database including fingerprints and hand geometry as well as Department of Immigration and Citizenship and a number of other databases.
In conclusion, Colonel General, Mr. Alexander Gorovoy wished all the participants and guests of INTERPOLITEX effective work and the establishment of new business contacts.
The display area of the exhibition constituted three halls of Pavilion No 75 of VDNH All-Russia Exhibition Centre with the space of 25,500 sq.meters. This year the scale of the event was quite impressive: 463 companies including 53 exhibitors from 11 foreign countries such as Belarus, Belgium, Germany, Israel, Republic of Cyprus, People’s Republic of China, Republic of Korea, Sweden, France and South Africa participated in the event.
One would be deeply impressed by the exhibits among which were vehicles, armoured vehicles, various types of special-purpose weapons and equipment, tactical gear and medical services, special-purpose communication equipment, information protection solutions and systems and many others. Both domestic and foreign companies presented their projects. State-of-the-art developments and advanced solutions are of particular interest to everyone at INTERPOLITEX-2016. More than one thousand cutting-edge solutions and innovations were unveiled by the companies within the framework of the anniversary event.
It was the first time Federal Guard Service of the Russian Federation (the Russian Guard) took part in the INTERPOLITEX event bringing to the fore a large-scale wheeled vehicle fleet and the print media materials stand as well as a mobile exposition of the Federal Guard Service of the Russian Federation Central Museum.
Okhrana (Guard) R & D Centre was a conspicuous participant of the INTERPOLITEX 2016 exhibition. The institution made a presentation of a wide range of security equipment and appliances as well as engineering safeguard systems that demonstrated mode of action of the non-departmental (private) security services in case of protection of sites and safeguarding the property of civilians drawing on the example of the city Central Guard Console. The Centre also organized a live demonstration of the Pritok-A alert notification system with visual data transmission from the guarded facility to the Central Guard Console. As the alarm response, the operator-on-duty at the Central Guard Console gets the visual data transmitted from the guarded site as well as the guarded site map download which assists in locating the nearest response security team to be called for on site. In the meantime, the address, characteristics and peculiarities of the site as well as other pieces of operational information are digitally transmitted to the data tablet of the response unit which rules out the possibility of information interception by the guarded site intruder.
The business programme of the 20th anniversary exhibition INTERPOLITEX 2016 included events dedicated to the most pressing security issues and problems and ways of their solution with the aid of state-of-the-art special-purpose means, systems and equipment.
Two plenary sessions, five research to practice conferences, six round tables and six workshops were held within the framework of INTERPOLITEX 2016 this year.
