Elbit Systems unveils Groundeye
Elbit Systems has developed a new line of ground-based wide-area persistent surveillance systems called GroundEye.
Developed for security and law enforcement requirements, the GroundEye surveillance system gathers imagery intelligence to provide a complete intelligence picture to a large number of users in both real time and replay.
The system can zoom into multiple target areas of interest, and facilitate continuous reception of data and video coverage as well as high-quality image resolution in all areas of surveillance.
It is designed to provide ground force commanders important insights on events occurring simultaneously in different places, as well as the ability to acquire, record and investigate forensic data. It can also create virtually closed-off areas (safe zones) that generate a virtual fence around the perimeter of any secure area.
GroundEye comprises a panoramic mast-mounted/tripod mounted sensor head that houses the system’s cameras and front-end electronics, an advanced computer processing unit, high-speed image analysis applications and a simplified user control station that is interoperable with third party command and control centres. The line of systems can be operated as a standalone system or integrated into a wider command and control network.
According to the company, the system has been evaluated and tested by security teams in Israel and internationally.
