2020-01-31 BULGARIAN DEFENCE INSTITUTE - A PARTICIPANT IN FOLDOUT EUROPEAN PROJECT

On 28 January, 2020, in Brussels was carried out a preliminary review of the implementation of FOLDOUT European project, which consists in some analyses and evaluation of the achieved results in project  work packages, as well as in a reviewing the plan for its implementation. Besides the partners in realization of the FOLDOUT project,   in the working meeting took part the evaluator and the supervising officers from the European Commission. The Defence Institute was presented at the meeting by col. assoc. prof. dr. Nikolai Stoianov - Deputy Director of the Institute and major Tsvetelin Tsonev - senior expert in it.

The dramatically increased illegal migration and the lack of an effective control, both on EU borders and on the areas of interest (firing grounds, military and strategic objects from the critical infrastructure), imposed to undertake the realization of the FOLDOUT project. This project, which is part of the UC`s "Horizon 2020" programme, started on 1 September, 2018 and its duration is 42 months. Its essence is to build, develop, test and demonstrate an intelligent system, focusеd on through foliage detection of people and vehicles in inner and outermost regions of the EU, by applying of some innovative methods for processing the information flow, as well as by applying of  some technologies for control (for example - deep scan sensors and cetera), other than existing ones. This will significantly increase the efficiency in the through-foliage detection of moving objects.

Abbreviation:

FOLDOUT - Through-foliage detection, including in the outermost regions of the EU.
