Introduction of a ground multispectral detection has changed organization and construction of perimeter security
systems. The perimeter systems with linear zone sensors and cables have been replaced with a point arrangement of
sensors with multispectral detection. Such multispectral sensors generally consist of an active ground radar, which scans
the protected area with microwaves or millimeter waves, a thermal camera, which detects temperature contrast and a
visible range camera. Connection of these three different technologies into one system requires methodology for
selection of technical conditions of installation and parameters of sensors. This procedure enables us to construct a
system with correlated range, resolution, field of view and object identification. The second technical problem connected
with the multispectral system is its software, which helps couple the radar with the cameras. This software can be used
for automatic focusing of cameras, automatic guiding cameras to an object detected by the radar, tracking of the object
and localization of the object on the digital map as well as identification and alarming.
In this paper two essential issues connected with multispectral system are described. We focus on methodology of
selection of sensors parameters. We present usage of a spider-chart, which was adopted to the proposed methodology.
Next, we describe methodology of automation of the system regarding an object detection, tracking, identification,
localization and alarming.
