Presentation of future radar sites

The tender for the supply of future radar sites was launched by the Delegation to the Safety and Road Traffic (DSCR). These future construction of field equipment (ETC), numbering 150 to start, speed cameras will be provided with maximum functionality and will be easily moved in the worksite areas but also in areas of temporary danger.
These radar sites will be allocated to departments; it will be prefects, responsible for road safety policy in their departments to decide on the use of such equipment in conjunction with road managers who submit their places and schedules 'installation. Places of controls will be announced by the installation of a classic warning sign of type "frequent radar controls." Three sizes of boards with a width ranging from 1.2 m to 2.4 m are planned according to the characteristics of the location. In addition, for the visibility of the booths, they will be equipped with yellow and black retro-reflective tape on the edges of the front and back and that on the whole the equipment template.
Facilities radar field projects as well as panels will be made by the holder of the service contract. This service will also be responsible for the transmission of messages of offense (MIF) at the National Processing Center Rennes. It will also ensure the storage of ETC and radar panels on its premises when they are not used.
The radar site will be super radar, here in detail the technical specifications requested by the DSCR.
It will also be equipped with an automatic device for positioning adjustment, to be used without the supervision of sworn officers and be exempted from installation verification. He will also have sufficient energy autonomy to allow 5 days of consecutive operation. And it will of course be designed to prevent vandalism acts (gun shots, fire, etc.) but also to prevent its movement without means of special lifting.
Then, to speed controls, the radar will know everything. The radar site must be able to monitor traffic traveling in both directions of traffic but also to discriminate between light vehicles and heavy-weight and finally he has identified the offending vehicle when several vehicles are checked on different routes.
The radar site will be equipped with a visible flash must be able to control up to 2,400 vehicles per hour per lane on at least three traffic lanes.
The radar site will not necessarily be equipped with an automatic transmission system of the MIF to the CNT. These can be stored on an internal removable media capable of storing at least 10,000 MIF. Then the contractor provider will be responsible for sending them with safety vest
to the CNT through transfer stations installed in its premises.
For cons, the radar site will always be connected to the CNT with a 2G connection / 3G for supervision of the equipment but also to enable a real-time transmission of alerts in case of problems on the ETC (after alarm moving or vandalism, calibration error, full storage media, etc.). Radar sites will therefore not be installed in areas not eligible 2G / 3G.
The deadline for submission of bids by the service providers is set for October 24. The choice of the selected provider will not be made by the DSCR before December. Then, the service provider will have six months to approve the radar site by the National Metrology and Testing. The first projects radar installations do not take place before July 2015 at the earliest.

It is not yet known how will be the future radar sites, but presumably they will look like those tested in 2012 but did not offer all the technical features required today.
