MARSS Group has passed the Final Site Acceptance Test of its largest single site project to-date.

With a value of over $100 million and encompassing the installation and integration of over 100 sensors and effectors, MARSS’ installation will provide complete protection and situational awareness at a complex critical infrastructure site in the Middle East, against manned and unmanned asymmetric threats such as UAS, USVs and UUVs.

First contracted just 18 months ago, MARSS has successfully brought together over 20 partners from around the world and seamlessly integrated them into a single tactical operational picture, all underpinned by NiDAR – MARSS’ proprietary Hybrid Intelligence system.

MARSS’ NiDAR fuses Artificial Intelligence (AI) alongside traditional algorithmic techniques and human driven domain expertise to produce results that exceed the sum of the parts. Combining all sensors and effectors into a single, intelligent User Interface, NiDAR maximizes the performance of individual instruments and greatly reduces the time from detection to defeat in the decision chain.

According to the company, several operational firsts have been achieved, including a proven end-to-end defeat capability integrating electronic and kinetic effectors. As the prime contractor, MARSS is also delivering a multi-year turn-key package, including training and integrated logistic support.

“Recent world events have emphasised the need for an agnostic approach to the rapid integration of legacy and next generation sensors and effectors. MARSS assembled a global team of experts backed by operational specialists to deliver a complete solution for our client,” said Rob Balloch, Senior Vice President of Sales. “In less than three years, MARSS has evolved from a team of just 18 to over 130 engineers, programmers and support professionals. Completing this latest project, providing end-to-end protection for a critical infrastructure site, is yet another landmark moment for MARSS’ development.”
