Threats facing U.S. forces today require persistent surveillance over areas of operation and areas of interest. BAE Systems provides this capability with ARGUS-IS.
ARGUS-IS is a composite focal plane array (CFPA) assembly of 368 overlapping FPAs, imaging a wide persistent area at 10Hz. Each FPA provides high-resolution imagery, which is combined with neighboring FPAs to perform the following functions:
- Create video windows,
- Detect and track moving vehicles,
- Reach back into the forensic archive, and
- Generate 3D models.
ARGUS-IS is capable of monitoring areas for an extended period of time and can be mounted on manned or unmanned platforms.
- Video windows
- Video tracking
- Forensic full field of view vehicle detection and tracking
- Live and forensic window-based vehicle and dismount tracking
- Forensic archival
Analysts can control over 100 windows for a detailed look, while still maintaining the broader context.
