Unattended Ground Sensors (UGS) are a cost-effective solution for covert monitoring of perimeter, borders control or pipeline control. UGS are lightweight sismic sensors which are used to detect people and vehicles.
A peer-to-peer RF network provides robust communications across multiple nodes (sensors) and the network configures itself to determine the most robust path to the Satcom/GPRS gateway that allows the control room to remotely monitor the system.
- Detection range: human 20m, vehicle 30m
- Number of sensors in the network: from 10 to 1000
- Deployment life up to 6 months
- Radio frequency: 863-870 MHz or 902-928MHz
- Power Source: replaceable lithium battery
- Temperature range: -10°C / +65°C
- Gateway wide-area network: SATCOM or GPRS
- Transport kit: resistant transport boxes
UGSS automatically detects and classifies objects which attempt to intrude into the monitored area. The system can utilize a combination of different types of sensors arranged in a network. Input from the sensors is collected by a node (sensor) and processed by its on-board signal processor. When signatures are correlated into a detection target, an alarm is triggered and transmitted via radio to a central monitoring station. The VHF radio transmission of control commands and alarm data is compressed and encrypted.
