Ground & Coastal Persistent Surveillance Radar Series (GCPSRS)

Persistent area surveillance is a specific type of surveillance activity where the area of interest is constantly under surveillance. Under the circumstances calling for persistent surveillance, the targets must be detected, analyzed and tracked instantly.

The sensor category used most extensively for persistent area surveillance applications is the Radar category. Radar sensors used for persistent surveillance normally utilize the FMCW (Frequency Modulation Continuous Wave) technology. These Radars are required to provide continuous coverage of the area of interest and instant detection and tracking of any target that moves within that area.

Persistent surveillance Radars are used for ranges extending from very short, starting at around 300 meters, to very long – up to dozens of kilometers or more.

Military ground and naval forces, HLS and law enforcement agencies and security organizations will benefit from ground and coastal persistent surveillance Radars providing continuous coverage of large areas of interest along with instant target detection and tracking.

ACS presents GCPSRS – Ground & Coastal Persistent Surveillance Radar Series.

The various solid-state, FMCW Radar models in this series utilize planar (non-rotating) antennae. Each planar antenna covers a 90-degree sector, and four antennae may be integrated to provide 360-degree coverage. Additionally, several Radar units may be linked together to provide an integrated surveillance picture in the context of a C4I system.

GCPSRS Radars have no moving parts and provide continuous multi-beam coverage of large areas of interest with instant target detection and automatic tracking of multiple ground or surface targets under all weather conditions. These Radars excel at detecting and tracking small and slow-moving targets.

All of the Radars in the GCPSRS series are easy to deploy and operate, have a low false alarm rate, low life cycle cost, high MTBF and high track update rate and are fully interoperable with electro-optical surveillance sensors.

All GCPSRS Radars may be operated locally or remotely.

The persistent surveillance Radars of the GCPSRS series were specifically designed and developed for such applications as early warning, battlefield surveillance, coastal & seaport surveillance, border security, strategic infrastructure/installation security and law enforcement.
