Surveillance Systems
for Perimeter Defense

< page 2 out of 9 >

 

Effective surveillance extending deep beyond the surrounding perimeter enables guarding forces to establish an adequate security around their base. Use of ground surveillance radars, optimized for short and medium range operations, augmented by panoramic electro-optical scanners are employed to maintain constant surveillance of the area, track suspicious movements and warn of evolving threats before these come within combat range with the security troops. Such systems enhance situational awareness of perimeter patrols, supporting them while attempting to intercept such suspects. Such sensors can also be linked directly to remote controlled firing posts, to engage potential targets when they can be confirmed as hostile. Further into the future, perimeter security could be augmented by robotic or autonomous vehicles equipped with non-lethal or lethal means, to engage, suppress and eliminate potential threats.
