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:
ARGUS-IS is capable of monitoring areas for an extended period of time and can be mounted on manned or unmanned platforms.
Analysts can control over 100 windows for a detailed look, while still maintaining the broader context.
