Our Integrated Fixed Towers system is an affordable, effective border security solution. It currently provides constant 24/7 surveillance capability along portions of the U.S. border.
The IFT systems use an integrated network of command and control capabilities and sensor platforms that help keep America and our U.S. Border Patrol agents safe.
ALL-IN-ONE COMMAND & CONTROL SITUATIONAL AWARENESS SYSTEM
Elbit Systems of America’s TORCH C2 system meets the challenges of net-centric operations, providing universal situational awareness and in-depth collaborative mission planning and management.
TORCH is a complete and integrated C4I system built from the ground up. The system meets real world needs for border security operations. TORCH’s all-in-one approach uniquely supports all command echelons from border patrol agents through command headquarters.
Our mobile, expandable Command and Control Shelters offer high-end command post solutions in field expedient kits. Our C4I infrastructures contain the necessary components for quick, mobile Command & Control facilities. Each of our self-contained custom shelters come fully equipped with workstations, power generators, and climate control units.
Our integrated, tower-based security solutions, provide flexibility for detection while simplifying training and system modifications.
SECURED COMMUNICATION SOLUTIONS
COMMUNICATION AND NETWORK MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
Elbit Systems of America offers an array of security solutions including handheld radios, satellite communications, cell phone blocking, and network management systems designed specifically to improve mission effectiveness, coordination, and security operations.
COUNTER-UNMANNED AERIAL SYSTEMS
Elbit Systems of America's Re-Drone Counter Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) is a modular, multi-sensor, open-architecture system designed to support most operator requirements. The passive signal intelligence is capable of detecting all types of UAS communications and separating them from the systems operator. Each system is equipped with video signals and alerts when an unidentified UAS penetrates protected zones. When two or more systems operate within the same space, Re-Drone triangulates operator location and classifies each identified UAS.
INTEGRATED FIXED TOWERS
BORDER SECURITY SOLUTIONS
Our Integrated Fixed Towers cover open terrain and offer permanent solutions for wide areas of surveillance. Outfitted with advanced radars, cameras, and sensors, the towers rapidly transmit data to the Command Center, increasing situational awareness and providing intelligence to our nation’s border security agents.
MOBILE/RELOCATABLE SURVEILLANCE SYSTEMS
BORDER SECURITY SOLUTIONS
Elbit Systems of America’s mobile and relocatable surveillance tower systems provide maximum coverage and operational flexibility to border security agents. Our concept integrates a variety of mobile surveillance technologies. Mobile surveillance secures hard to reach locations and are ideal for situations requiring semi-permanent surveillance.
UNATTENDED GROUND SENSORS
Primrose Wireless Sensor Networks are comprised of miniaturized, spatially-distributed and bi-directional remotely monitored sensors. Deployed at the ground level, these standalone, self-powered, intelligent nodes cooperatively detect and track the movements of people, vehicles, and other items of interest.
UNATTENDED GROUND RADAR
With a range of hundreds of meters, our unattended Ground Surveillance Radar provides real-time detection and tracking of humans and vehicles within a monitored area. To ensure accurate detection of moving items of interest, the Ground Surveillance Radar utilizes a high-resolution, state-of-the-art, digital beam-forming radar. For detection capabilities in larger coverage areas, the TALOS Agent Portable Surveillance System incorporate a networked array of ground radars.
TACTICAL RECONNAISSANCE AND SURVEILLANCE ENHANCED SYSTEM
TREASURES is a unique Unattended Ground Sensors (UGS) system, which enables continuous border protection and enhanced Situational Awareness. The system can be used to counter threat activity and ensure a short and efficient sensor-to-responder cycle. TREASURES detects, classifies and tracks human and vehicular targets, in real time, on any terrain and in all weather conditions. The system uses a broad network of sensor clusters, with intelligent dedicated communication, breakthrough sensing technologies and data analysis capabilities. The low-maintenance system is comprised of light weight, small form factor components and can be deployed rapidly without accessories or infrastructure. TREASURES is a flexible system which enables easy integration with third-party sensors, subsystems and C4I systems.
MEDIUM SIZED MULTI-PAYLOAD UAS
The Hermes 450 Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) is a highly reliable, mobile and deployable unit with 15 years of service and more than 100,000 hours of flight time. The fully composite, fully operational Hermes 450 may be launched and recovered from both prepared and semi-prepared runways. This medium-size, multi-payload UAS can operate two payloads simultaneously and provide persistent surveillance with endurance in excess of 18 hours and up to 30 hours with the optional external fuel tanks. The Hermes 450 offers high operational versatility for both military and non-military use, with manual or fully autonomous flight capabilities and common, cutting-edge, redundant avionics.
SMALL UNMANNED AIRCRAFT SYSTEM
VIDAR Small Unmanned Aircraft System (sUAS) provides unparalleled utility and reliability to allow any operator to support a wide variety of missions with one platform. With origins stemming from the highly successful Skylark 1 LE, VIDAR is designed to provide mission effectiveness at an affordable price.
Maximum utilization of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components and an open avionics architecture allows VIDAR to be easily adapted to the customer’s autopilot, radio, and payload preferences.
Equipped with a powerful electric motor, the hand-launched system can be operated from a wide variety of locales without the need for bulky launch or recovery equipment or improved runway surfaces. VIDAR's universal payload mount provides mission flexibility that allows payloads to be swapped in minutes without a specific payload sensor.
Utility, reliability, flexibility, affordability – VIDAR provides mission success.
