Teledyne FLIR Defense has released a new Lightweight Vehicle Surveillance System (LVSS) with advanced Air Domain Awareness (ADA) and Counter-Unmanned Aerial System (C-UAS) capabilities.
The LVSS ADA C-UAS is an upgraded addition to the company’s field-proven LVSS platform that features reliable, rapidly deployable technology to detect and mitigate the threat of small drones. With increased cyber security tools to resist hackers, the new system leverages a combination of 3D radar, EO/IR camera, and RF detection and mitigation sensors to provide early warning alerts and recognition. Threats are detected and displayed simultaneously, showing position and elevation for all radar tracks.
The system can also detect drone swarms by allowing operators to monitor up to 500 radar targets simultaneously. A multi-spectral imager captures key UAS elements that help identify high risk targets for a pinpointed response.
Operators can obtain threat assessments while the system is static or while driving the vehicle, with high performing video analytics allowing operators to precisely identify, track and engage threats. New Cameleon V5 command and control software integrates all onboard sensors and supports advanced device features and bi-directional communications.
“Protecting vast borders, shorelines, and forward-operating bases is a job that’s been made even more difficult with the challenges posed by drones,” said Dr. JihFen Lei, executive vice president and general manager of Teledyne FLIR Defense. “The LVSS C-UAS combines sophisticated counter-drone technologies and counter-measures to make it the most effective mobile surveillance system available to combat these dangers. Our customers trust us for solutions like the new LVSS that adapt to fast changing threat environments and offer more of the capabilities they need for mission success.”
