AbstractABSTRACT: Oceanit"s M2IWS system (Multi-Spectral, Multi-Threat Integrated Warning Sensor) provides an integrated"triple threat"sensor that combines missile warning (MW), laser threat warning (LW), and hostile fire indication (HFI) in one integrated sensor. These functions are currently performed by separate systems. These multiple systems take up too much valuable space on aircraft, and for smaller platforms are simply too heavy. M2IWS uses custom infrared technology developed by Oceanit, combined with the latest commercially available technology, both COTS and GOTS, to achieve the most compact sensor possible. The system combines wide FOV staring for all threat classes with high-resolution imagery. This enables very rapid threat detection, battlefield surveillance, close air support to the battlefield, and intelligence support. M2IWS can be deployed in configurations ranging from a single sensor up to five. This allows for sensor configurability so that different packages can be available as required for different military aircraft and mission profiles. For example, a small attack helicopter could install a single sensor with 180 degrees field-of-view. A larger aircraft might install four, 120 degrees FOV sensors for longer range operation, and due to airframe obstructions. BENEFIT: M2IWS system is primarily a military product but has commercial applications, such as aircraft and vessel protection for military and civilian customers, both passenger and freight.
