The Murom-M surveillance system has been a significant addition to modern warfare, providing armies with enhanced visual capabilities on the battlefield. Its primary function is to offer long-distance visual surveillance, allowing military forces to monitor enemy movements and strategize accordingly.

The Murom-M Russian intelligence-gathering systems pose significant concerns due to their ability to remotely monitor the activities of the Ukrainian armed forces over long distances, regardless of the time of day. Their affordability and compact nature further enhance their widespread deployment possibilities.

For optimal performance of the Murom-M system, it is essential to mount it at the highest feasible position to ensure a wide and clear field of view. Russian installations often place these systems on tall buildings, industrial complexes, communication towers, and in some instances, dedicated masts positioned directly above Russian trenches have also been noticed.

The Murom system is equipped with a high-resolution video camera that can detect human targets from a distance of up to 10,000 meters. The exact detection range for vehicles has not been specified. This camera boasts a resolution of 2592x1944 pixels, ensuring clear and detailed imagery. Complementing the video camera is the thermal camera, which is designed to detect targets from distances up to 4,000 meters and can extend its detection up to 7,900 meters for certain other targets.

An integral part of the Murom system is its 5.2-meter tall mast. This mast not only provides elevation to the surveillance equipment but also ensures a broader and unobstructed view of the surroundings, making it easier to monitor vast areas. Powering the system is a robust battery pack with a capacity of 200 Ah. This battery ensures that the Murom system can operate for extended periods without the need for frequent recharging, making it ideal for remote and inaccessible locations.

Another vital component of the Murom is its data link whose feature eliminates the need for cumbersome cables and physical connections, allowing for seamless data transmission. With this wireless link, the surveillance feed from the Murom system can be accessed remotely, ensuring that operators can monitor areas from a safe distance.
