Tactical Ground Surveillance Radar Family (TGSRF)

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 and continuously.

The sensor category used most extensively for persistent area surveillance applications is the Radar category. Tactical persistent area surveillance 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, at ranges extending from very short (around 50 meters) to long (about 25 kilometers).

Military ground forces, HLS / law enforcement agencies and security organizations will benefit from ground persistent surveillance Radars providing continuous 360-degree coverage of large areas of interest along with instant target detection and continuous tracking of multiple targets.

ACS presents TGSRF – Tactical Ground Surveillance Radar Family.

The solid-state, pulse-Doppler X-band Radars in this series provide 360-degree coverage of large areas of interest with instant target detection and continuous tracking of multiple ground targets under all weather conditions.

Each TGSRF Radar may operate as a standalone unit or as part of a comprehensive ground surveillance system, integrated with other sensors.

All TGSRF Radars are lightweight (man-portable), easy to deploy and operate, have a low power consumption rating, Low Probability of Interception (LPI), high MTBF and a high track updating rate.

All TGSRF Radars may be operated locally or remotely through landline or wireless communication.

The TGSRF persistent surveillance Radars were specifically designed and developed for such applications as early warning, border surveillance & security, strategic infrastructure/installation security and law enforcement.
