The post is equipped with autonomous power sources (solar panels, wind generators, batteries) and is integrated into the intelligent border guard system of the monitoring center, which is located at the Khoiniki border outpost.
In the future, it is planned to increase the number of autonomous technical means of protection on the Belarusian-Ukrainian section of the border, which will make it possible to remotely monitor over 100 kilometers, including on the territory of the Polesie State Radiation and Environmental Reserve.
