Automatic CBRN Warning- and Reporting System (CBRN-AWR)

Currently, the direct threat from large-scale use of weapons of mass destruction is considered to be very low. In recent years, the nature of potential threats has changed character and become more diffuse. At present, possible risks and threats are presented by: bombed or otherwise damaged industrial installations; terrorist attacks using chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear (CBRN) substances; and, the use of these substances in connection with criminal activity.

In Sweden, as a response to the new and wider assessment of the threats presented by CBRN substances, the government has commissioned the Swedish Armed Forces to improve and adapt the CBRNe awareness programme. As a step in this assignment, the armed forces have developed CBRNe reconnaissance vehicles and three mobile laboratories designed for the field analysis and identification of suspected CBRN substances. In civil and military connections alike, these systems can be used in both national and international operations.

The third assignment is to deploy a network based redundant capability for CBRNe detection, identification, monitoring, surveillance, warning and reporting, for direct involvement of the civilian supporting organizations, i.e. law enforcement, firearms, ambulances, hospitals, civilian defence, media infrastructure (TV and News channels).

The probability of a large-scale use of weapons of mass destruction had been assessed as declining in the world but at the same time the risk increased for the use of CBRNe weapons on a lesser scale, especially post the terror attack in New York, USA on the 11th of September, 2001. For Sweden, it is primarily terrorism and environmental disasters that can constitute a CBRNe threat. To meet this new threat, the Swedish government has designated protection against CBRNe warfare agents as one area of technology within which Sweden should gain strategic competence.

Our analysis and proposed solution at the elementary level describe how existing sensor systems within the Total Defense and technology available, can be combined into a network-based intelligent autonomous and integrated system for warning and reporting of CBRNe threats and events, over communication with monitoring, decision support, management and information systems. A demonstration study of an implemented solution was described to illustrate how information chains can generate system power within the CBRNe protection function.

Based on experience from the development of the demonstrator as well as the views and discussions during the verification of the system, our description highlights some key issues in the development of tomorrow’s system for CBRNe protection.
Issues that were partially mentioned by the Swedish Armed Forces, and are critical to the function and therefore have been highlighted are e.g. interoperability, functional orientation, remote expert participation, management models and collaborations to obtain relevant information from many independent sources of information.

Networking enables virtual staffs (remote offices, i.e. safe command- and control bunkers) to be created with members located in different locations. The members of the virtual staff can access the same information and discuss it in real time with the support of an audio / video conference system. A major advantage is that key people with expert knowledge can support operations in several locations at the same time. This is an example of the principle of virtual power gathering rather than physical regrouping.

One conclusion is that simplified system-level prototypes and demonstrators (i.e. Digital Twins) can be used to concretize issues and concepts so that they can be penetrated and discussed in a larger forum.

In this way, the gap between vision and real-world application can be bridged for the benefit of the development of a network-based defense (NBF). Another conclusion is that the concretization that is taking place is a great support for all the staff, at different levels within the total defense, who will take part in and carry out different types of future assignments.

The ISVR-CBRNe system solution consists of a number of components such as software, computers, servers, gateways, full-fledged and reduced network nodes, sensor nodes, sensors and CBRNe indicator instruments.

Our ISVR-CBRNe™ system demonstrator with its current design is closely related to multi-frequency based wireless sensor nodes that can be distributed over large geographical areas in order to create both a local and overall capability for protection against CBRNe threats and events.

Security aspects concerning our country, fellow human beings and society have resulted in a broad pool of efforts to develop the ISVR-CBRNe™ system, which is an essential component of our CBRNe Protection Program (CSP). ISVR-CBRNe™ provides us with as early, secure and reliable information as possible so that necessary countermeasures and remedial actions can be staged in the event of unpredictable CBRNe threats and events.

Each relief effort is highly dependent on real-time or near-real-time information from sensors and indicating instruments at the actual occurrence and detection of chemical, biological, radiological / nuclear and highly explosive substances, as well as notification of safety in the area.

Today’s indication instruments that can detect and indicate chemical, biological, radiological / nuclear and highly explosive substances (CBRNe) are often driving costs, which entails restrictions on the distribution of sensor networks over large geographical areas in a cost-effective manner.

Furthermore, detection and indication are very strongly dependent on the capabilities of the indication instruments to make use of dynamically interchangeable substance libraries. Most indicator instruments have a very limited range and are distributed to a limited number of possible threat areas. A limitation of the number of detection points or sensor nodes weakens the protection capacity and the high cost per sensor node (indicating instrument) makes distribution on a large scale economically indefensible. The research and development trend in applicable technology for CBRNe indicator instruments points towards smaller components at reduced costs, so that distribution of sensor networks over large geographical areas is now possible. However, these new indication instruments are in need of a secure, reliable and accessible wireless network to be able to operate and distribute indication information to central monitoring, decision support, management and information systems for further management of any relief and rescue operations and evacuation activities.

Consequently, there is a need to develop cost-effective indication instruments with secure, reliable and accessible wireless data networks for collaborative detection, positioning, evaluation and analysis as well as tracking of unpredictable CBRNe threats and events. A cost-optimized, wireless network with a very long battery life that can be distributed in variable environments can be such a solution.

A fully functional wireless sensor network consists of access points, or gateways, which can coexist with existing data communication infrastructure in order to enable communication with both military and civilian command and communication centers.

We have for some time worked to find methods and advanced technology for our ISVR-CBRNe™ system with the application and use of multi-frequency based wireless sensor networks based on large-scale distributed sensor nodes over wireless local networks with gateway connections to central monitoring, decision support, management and information systems.

Scalable networks are required and consist of a layered structure of sensor nodes within wireless local area networks that use so-called “Ad-hoc” protocols for shaping the network, as well as at least one gateway within each LAN to provide central monitoring, decision support, management and information centers with communication links.

Sensor networks can be used to advantage to detect, indicate and track chemical, biological, radiological / nuclear and highly explosive substances in near real time. ISVR-CBRNe™ forms the heart and brain of our CBRNe Protection Program (CSP) against CBRNe threats and incidents.

Specifically, our ISVR-CBRNe™ system provides us with a method for applying scalable wireless sensor networks with a layered architecture in three levels and building sensor nodes for detection, position determination, evaluation and analysis as well as tracking of unpredictable CBRNe threats and events (chemical, biological, radiological / nuclear and highly explosive substances).

The scalable and dynamically expandable wireless sensor network includes distributed sensor nodes as part of a wireless local area network (LAN) connected to remote monitoring centers via gateways with wide area network (WAN) interfaces. Each sensor node includes a broadband receiver / transmitter as well as a software radio to support collaboration with licensed and unlicensed spectrum of LANs using commercial or proprietary protocols. The LAN wireless network can be distributed using commercial unlicensed spectrum to switch to licensed spectrum at a later stage.

Specifically, the current design of the ISVR-CBRNe™ system provides the most advantageous frequency for a widely distributed sensor network, including wireless local area network (WLAN), as well as wireless and / or wired use for wide area network (WAN). WLAN provides communication between local sensor nodes and gateway nodes that supports frequencies for both WLAN and WAN. In addition, the WAN provides communication from gateway nodes to a monitoring center for line and communication functions. The monitoring center collects data (sensor values ​​such as position and weather information as well as indication results) from all sensor nodes, performs an evaluation of the results that form the basis for decision support with possibility to take the appropriate action / intervention.

No prior art design of WLAN frequency systems meets the requirements for availability and communication reliability necessary for a widely distributed sensor network, so systems and methods applied within the ISVR-CBRNe™ system provide a multi-frequency sensor node that supports multiple wireless communication protocols for WLAN, and multiple wireless protocols and wired WAN. In a preferred design, a general system with general methods supports multiple frequencies selected during installation of the system, alternatively configuration can be done with the addition of additional frequencies via a monitoring system (remote). This provides the flexibility to use any standard frequency or proprietary frequency that fits within the design restrictions of receivers / transmitters, processors and external interfaces.

The wireless sensor network within the ISVR-CBRNe™ system consists of multi-frequency nodes that provide a low investment cost, low power consumption of wireless links for most applications including a national monitoring network, law enforcement and commercial applications. In the event of a CBRNe threat and / or incident, local personnel will be the first to respond. However, emergency and rescue services will lack the ability to quickly detect, locate, evaluate metrics, track, and respond to CBRNe threats and / or events. Consequently, no coordinated efforts or service of decisions can be communicated in a timely manner, which can cause loss of human life. Implementation of real-time sensor networks, according to our ISVR-CBRNe™ system, expands the ability of limited and specialized local resources to respond quickly and efficiently. The network provides broad collaboration within authorities at all levels. The critical component of the ISVR-CBRNe™ system is the wireless redundant, self configuring sensor network.

The characteristics of the wireless sensor network include:

– Fast and efficient grouping,
– Reliable function for data communication,
– Comprehensive threat recognition (detection), evaluation and tracking,
– Automatic adaptation to multiple background environments,
– Support for detection of both threats and incidents,
– Redundancy,
– Data security and physical security,
– Supports multiple sensor types,
– Flexibility for varying application scenarios,
– Central monitoring functions for detecting system errors, maintenance, configuration and upgrading of software and frequency settings and
– Integrated data transfer and communication.

Implementation of our ISVR-CBRNe™ system provides a sensor network, with a flexible open architecture that serves as a communication platform for a wide range of distributed application scenarios and sensor types as well as indicator instruments. Sensors and indicating instruments can detect one or more CBRNe threats and / or events, for example when distributing a radiological / nuclear indicating instrument and / or a chemical indicating instrument. A chemical indicator instrument can take a sample of the ambient air and analyze its contents. A network of ISVR-CBRNe™ systems can be distributed to scan an entire city in real time, highways with heavy traffic, valuable assets, hospitals, ports, airports or distributed locally in case of emergency.

Sensors and indicator instruments can be placed permanently mounted or on mobile platforms either on the ground or in the air. Typical fixed locations can be buildings of varying heights, tall towers, lampposts, poles for electricity or telephony, towers for mobile networks (GSM) or poles for traffic lights. The fundamental ability of the sensor network is real-time monitoring over time and space. System ISVR-CBRNe™ possesses the ability to quickly, in near-real time, detect, locate, characterize, warn, report and even take any countermeasures / efforts.

The key aspects of the ISVR-CBRNe™ key system design are the flexibility of distributing the system, seamless scalability from small networks to very large networks, network redundancy, self configuration and low investment for an impenetrable node location.

Gateway nodes (GWN) are distributed within the network to provide a back-up communication link to existing audiences or private infrastructure such as e.g. GSM networks, land-based radio systems, and wired and wireless IP access points. Examples of standards include GSM, CDMA2000, TDMA, IEEE 802.11, IEEE802.16, Ethernet, DSL and ADSL. A GWN provides function as the sensor network’s data concentrator as well as communication link back-up with existing infrastructures for communication (eg show land-based radio, GSM network, broadband, etc.).
The most important feature is that a GWY provides transparent communication over various physical layers in the ISO model.

Gateway nodes (GWN) can dynamically redistribute the primary medium for backward-upward communication depending on the availability of the services. When a network is congested, unavailable or damaged, a gateway node can automatically redirect information via alternative protocols.

Redundant local servers provide network management features such as Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) for automatic assignment of IP (Internet Protocol), SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) and security through Electronic Key Management System (EKMS).

Encryption services for unattended devices are limited to Type III algorithms such as AES (Advanced Encryption Standard). More secure encryption methods can be applied at higher levels where aggregated information and decision support information can be found.

Network bandwidth management is controlled from the local server. This ensures sufficient QoS (Quality of Service) and is managed in the local network so that sensor data and measurement values ​​do not overuse available bandwidth in the back-up communication in the system.

Metsman weather sensors are built on the well-proven “ultrasonic vortex” sensor principle which provides a very high level of accuracy and availability because the sensor is of the “solid-state” type of construction without moving or sensitive parts and components. The sensors have no infrared or thermal signature and do not require maintenance by staff. Metsman MK2 measures wind speed, wind direction, air pressure and air temperature as well as humidity. The sensor also includes an electronic compass. The sensor can be mounted on a mast and as an accessory to the weather sensor there is also a separate data unit with display.

The sensors have been designed and manufactured to meet relevant requirements within ISO 9001, DEF-STAN 07-55, 59-41, 61-5 and MIL-SPEC 461D. They are resistant to rain, salt water, dust and the effects of high frequency vibrations. The sensors deliver data with high accuracy at operating temperatures between -50°C and +60°C. Power supply requirements are within 100mA to 300mA depending on configuration.

The flexibility of the Metsman sensors enables use in a number of different application areas and minimizes costs for training, spare parts and has an MTBF of between 12,500 and 20,000 hours. The Metsman sensors provide good TCO values ​​for entire systems compared to weather sensors from other manufacturers. Metsman MK2 is available in the Swedish Armed Forces as a weather sensor system in the CBRN Reconnaissance vehicle, where we have already participated during integration with monitoring systems. Metsman MK2 delivers complete weather information for use in CBRN software modeling of real-time distribution models. We recommend Metsman real-time local weather sensors for use within our ISVR-CBRNe™ system.
