MARSS unveils new NiDAR C2 system
MARSS has introduced a new version of its NiDAR command and control system to link multiple small and medium sized mobile platforms together, the company announced on 6 July.
The new system is designed to support operators of multiple small tactical platforms in surveillance, border control, coastguard, critical asset protection and special forces roles.
NiDAR can be fitted to any fleet of light vehicles, vessels or UAS, including fast patrol boats, light tactical ground vehicles and light aircraft, transforming them into a fully networked mobile tactical surveillance system. A common surveillance picture can be accessed and controlled from any one designated platform or via a command centre.
The system integrates multiple sensors including cameras, radar, sonar, communications and blue force tracker inputs, enabling the operator to detect and monitor known and unknown air, surface and underwater objects.
Rob Balloch, VP Sales for MARSS said: ‘The reason we are so excited about this development of NiDAR is that it is the first lightweight command and control system that allows you to integrate all surveillance assets into one tactical picture.
‘Whether that’s sonar on a patrol boat, the radar on a light patrol vehicle or the electro-optics on an unmanned aerial vehicle, they can all be controlled and coordinated from one designated asset and the information instantaneously shared across all other platforms. It is what the military call a force multiplier; giving small platforms big platform capability.’
