S&DR implements research and design of software and hardware for security systems that use various physical and geophysical fields. S&DR assists organizations with the development of such integrated and simple systems. S&DR team has experience in the siting, design, and construction of security systems that can be stationary and rapidly deployed. The key point of the S&DR achievements is based on using a new and unique approach to signal processing in security systems that allows to drastically increase their detection range and reduce false alarm rates. S&DR provides clients with a diverse and complex set of analysis.

S&DR team uses a complex approach to the analysis of security systems based on its knowledge, expertise and experience of the following:

• How a security system should be created?
• For what purpose a security system is created (specifically for which tactical tasks)?
• How to estimate the system’s efficiency? How to use the security system with the highest efficiency? System optimization.
• How to set up requirements to a security system?
• How to suppress and counteract to a security system? (Countermeasure).
• How to defend the security system from suppression? (Countermeasure to Countermeasure).
• How to provide compatibility to other security systems?

S&DR team is capable to accomplish the expertise of the following:

• R&D work related to components of security systems, such as sensors, detectors, network devices, transmitters, wireless devices, etc
• The actual functionality, performance, and quality of these components listed in the above point.
• The entire security system.
• Integrated systems which are comprised of the security systems that use different physical fields for detection of different objects
• The system without relation to the protected facility
• The system with relation to the protected facility
• The performance of the security system of facilities/objects and the respective facilities/objects themselves:
• Identifying the weaknesses of the protection of the facilities/objects
• Identifying the requirements for the facility/object security system
• Recommending whether system needs to be updated or replaced

In addition, S&DR is able to employ the additional layers of analysis for the existing or designing security systems:

• Whether up-to-date scientific and technical results are used by the security system.
• Rationality of the security system structure and how it corresponds to specifics of the object/facility .
• With regards to hidden security systems, how well the systems are hidden (during installation, function, maintenance, etc).
• The system’s redundancy and/or sufficiency, existence of stand-by part devices.
• The ease with which a potential system could be installed, maintained, and used.
• The safety of the security system.
• Influence of seasonal/climactic/weather and other factors on the security system.
• Interference immunity and noise stability of the security system.
• Electromagnetic and other compatibilities of the security systems.
• Whether entire and well-timed control of security system parameters exist, and whether to include in a system specific computer-based control devices.

S&DR provides consulting in the following main general security topics:

• Just Security. (What is Security? Security is around us. Security is a process of protection providing. It is steady moving, steady working, etc. Security is always doing something)
• Security & Decision-making. Strategy & Responsibility. (Who is responsible for security? A Consumer in fact makes a final decision about strategy and actually has responsibility for his Security. That who pays money orders a music.)
• Security & Structure (hierarchical/vertical and horizontal). (Our world and our life have hierarchical/vertical and horizontal structure. Security as part of our life has the same structure.)
• Technical & Organizational Security. (Technical & organizational aspect of the security)
• Security & Human Being Factor
• Security & Information (Awareness of that who wants to be protected. Positive influence)
• Security & Information (Awareness of that who wants to brake security. Negative influence)
• Security Paradox (Perfect security costs a lot, but the results are often invisible. “We do not keep that we have. If we lost, we cry.” )
• Security & Response Forces. (If we do not have response forces security doesn’t make sense.)
• Security & Sample control. (Sample control is not enough for security purposes.)
• Security & Just Talking about Security
