Homeland Security Products
Foundational to every successful security strategy is surveillance that provides threat awareness with sufficient warning to respond effectively. During the 70 years since its invention, radar has become recognized as the gold-standard for 24/7, wide-area surveillance of uncooperative targets. Until recently, only military radar systems had the ability to detect and track the small uncooperative targets that most frequently represent national security threats. However, military systems are too expensive and have features poorly suited to the homeland security mission.
Accipiter® Security Radar information networks with their M3™ multi-radar, multi-mission, multi-user capabilities meet the price and operational needs of homeland security applications. Accipiter’s patented technology integrates commercial off-the-shelf transceivers and computer hardware with the most advanced military signal and data processing strategies. Accipiter's Total Coverage™ Technology provides complete cylindrical coverage of the entire aerosphere with a beam that scans 0-360° in azimuth and 0-90° in elevation with user programmable scan patterns.
This technological combination improves by an order of magnitude the price-performance characteristics of radar capable of reliably tracking small, uncooperative targets such as jet skis, marine vessels, vehicles, and low-flying aircraft such as ultralights. Accipiter’s M3™ information system seamlessly joins multiple radars to cover wide areas with a distributed network of inexpensive sensors that delivers real-time and historical target data to multiple users with multiple missions. Client determined advanced analytics and automated alerting extract the maximum tactical and strategic value from the radar information while minimizing the need for operator attention and specialized expertise.
The Accipiter® Security Radar product family includes a number of mature, operationally tested and deployed, standard radar systems engineered and configured to meet typical requirements associated with law enforcement, border security, coastal surveillance, critical infrastructure protection and port security. Each system includes our patented M3™ multi-radar, multi-mission, multi-user information system featuring an open sensor and network architecture for flexibility and scalability, protecting your investment for future growth and changing requirements. A wide range of platform, transceiver, antenna and information system options allow our engineers to customize solutions to meet your particular mission and user requirements.
