PGSR-3iFT ’Beagle’


PGSR-3iFT ’Beagle’ is a tower-mounted radar for detection, tracking and classification of targets moving on or close to the ground.
PGSR-3iFT ’Beagle’ is a member of our fix radar family together with the coastal sea surveillance radar. It was designed for desert and harsh environment operation. It is placed inside a hermetically sealed Radom to withstand extreme weather and environmental challenges..


-Remote operation with IP communication
-Long detection range
-Intelligent ruling element in sensor system
-Integration with camera subsystems
-Integration with C4i systems, local operation
-Key element of large border security systems


The radar PGSR-3iFT ’Beagle’ is member of the PGSR Beagle family of FMCW radars, making use of all advantages specific to this excellent and well-proven radar class. Mounted on top of towers, it is watching and collecting information from the surrounding area practically from 360 degree. Numerous camera vendors are supported; new camera integration is standard procedure. Optionally camera integration/control hardware is available. The radar PGSR-3iFT ’Beagle’ is key element of sensor systems for early warning, illegal border crossing prevention and threat recognition along extensive border sections in desert or harsh environment. Improve the resilience passive cooling was deployed, no ventilator used for cooling. If several radars are operated, neighboring radars cover shadow zones of each other, to achieve full coverage of surveillance area. Radar operating channels are selectable and adjustable. Neighboring radars do not disturb each other even if radiating and receiving signals over a common area. The PGSR-3iFT ’Beagle’ radars are the highest level ruling intelligent units in the radar-camera-sensor modules hierarchy. The radar controls cameras: activates, directs, ”slews to cue” etc.


The radar is controlled from the local operator unit or remote command center. The radar’s control software ADAMS is capable of utilizing various map formats and displaying the detected targets over the map. PGSR-3iFT ’Beagle’ is the intelligent ruling unit that performs activation, coordination and control of thermal cameras, daylight cameras and other sensors. All surveillance data and user interaction events are logged and can be replayed for further analysis.
