NiDAR C2 system for Zodiac Hurricane RIBs
MARSS will supply its NiDAR command and control (C2) system for Zodiac Milpro’s Zodiac Hurricane Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats (RIB) under a new $2 million contact.
MARSS will supply and install an expeditionary version of the NIDAR C2 system (NiDAR X) and the complete sensors package, for a flotilla of 11m Hurricane RIB fast patrol and intercept vessels for an undisclosed special forces unit.
NiDAR X will transform the RIBs into a fully networked wide-area surveillance system, providing a shared situational awareness picture between each of the craft.
The NiDAR X system is sensor agnostic, and integrates multiple sensors on each vessel, including cameras, radar, sonar plus AIS, digital radio, and tracker and transponder inputs to detect, identify and monitor known and unknown air, surface and underwater objects. The system provides detailed threat and targeting information to the vessel helmsman and other operators through head-up displays.
With NiDAR X, any RIB can be designated as the command craft. The flotilla can either act independently as a high speed, high mobility surveillance/interdiction force; or, through a dedicated high bandwidth digital radio system, share data with, or be controlled by, a command centre on land or a mothership.
