According to the official publication, system is a microchip with information about the direction that can be embedded in at least some gun or machine gun. Such a chip would block the shot, if an instrument, for example, use a third-party person, or if the holder to prohibit the use instrument. In addition, the chip will record any actions with the gun, including the rate and mode of use of cartridges.
Identify the arrow system able through a series of sensors mounted on the handle, trigger, sights and other parts of the gun. In general, according to the developer, installation these sensors is not planned. In a first step system will only record information about the owner.
According disk imaging "Izvestia", the development of chips and sensors involved in the Central Scientific Research Institute of Radio Engineering named Berg (CRIRE), and several other research institutes.
According to the views of interlocutors newspapers in the defense industry and law enforcement agencies, the implementation of the identification tool not only helps to simplify its inclusion in the warehouses, and help to control trafficking guns on the market.
The likely cost of the system as it is installed on tool, is not specified. For example, factory modernization 1st AK-74 c install Picatinny rails, ergonomic handle and telescopic buttstock is estimated at 10 thousand rubles. Installation a descent of several sensors in each tool, likely to be much more labor-intensive and expensive. In addition, the sensors need batteries, and the trigger — electric system LOCK.
