PSDS2 – Persistent Surveillance and Dissemination of Systems


Persistent Surveillance and Dissemination of Systems (PSDS2) was established to address an urgent requirement for time sensitive targets engagement capability. The system was developed and fielded by Raytheon in 110 days. PSDS2 integrates various sensors, including artillery and mortar spotting radars, acoustic sensors, aerostat born RAID and PTDS systems and airborne UAVs. Automatic detection, cross cueing and correlation of sensors and fire units are employed. PSDS2 facilitates a centralized collection and storage of imagery and intelligence, supporting near-real-time and offline forensics and look-back for up to 24 hours. Sensor data is embedded on a terrain model enabling the commander to see enemy actions in perspective to sensor location and orientation.
