Airborne Wide-Area Persistent Surveillance System (AWAPSS)

Aiborne Wide-Area Persistence Surveillance Systems
The first true day and night wide area persistent surveillance system in one turret.

BAE Systems Airborne Wide Area Persistent Surveillance System (AWAPSS) is an unblinking eye in the sky commanding a persistent watch over troubled areas to provide decision makers with useful and focused information. Ideal for large complex events such as natural disaster recovery, harbor security, VIP protection, large sporting events, and anywhere wide area surveillance is needed to help protect life and commodities.

AWAPSS simultaneously collects registered, 100-mega-pixel visible and infrared images at one or two frames per second across an 8-km-diameter radius. AWAPSS delivers near-real-time imagery with abundant storage for forensic analysis of current and past events.

Installed on your choice of fixed wing, lighter than air or rotary wing aircraft, and monitored by expert staff, the BAE Systems AWAPSS provides a complete situational awareness service.
