NATO AGS Terma system verified
Terma announced on 17 June that its Automated Target Recognition/Automatic Target Identification Capability (ATR/ATID) for NATO’s Alliance Ground Surveillance (AGS) programme has passed formal verification and accreditation.
Developed by Terma under contract with the NATO Alliance Ground Surveillance Management Agency (NAGSMA) the ATR/ATID has been installed at the operational site in Sigonella Airbase, Sicily.
The system assists operators in the control room by interpreting synthetic aperture radar data from Global Hawk aircraft via artificial intelligence techniques.
‘The ATR/ATID capability developed by Terma will provide increased intelligence data processing for the NATO AGS operators in the surveillance of large areas,’ said NAGSMA general manager, Volker Samanns. ‘It also shows the specific competences of Terma in developing and managing demanding software projects together with NAGSMA.’
Terma’s involvement will now continue, securing a complete integration of the ATR/ATID capability into the AGS core system, expected to be complete by the end of 2020.
