Threat Recognition and Early Warning Method
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
The overall objective of this development effort will be to establish a "local" UAV surveillance platform and early warning system for a wide range of designated installations, bases and facilities. The system would provide around the clock ground surveillance and condition assessment, together with immediate real time response to any observed threat such as the launch of a mortar or missile. After the identification of a threat the system would provide threat recognition, and an automated warning with location and impact time information, provided in real time. This warning system linked directly to a facility would allow a few seconds of warning before impact. In addition, the same surveillance system would provide real-time information on the launch coordinates allowing an automated and rapid counterstrike to be made within seconds. The surveillance and warning system utilizes a range of sensors working to optimize the threat assessment, while maximizing the response time.
