MGS3 ‘Scout’

VEHICLE MOUNTED GROUND SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM

The MGS3 ‘Scout’ Vehicle is a mobile surveillance unit offering a unique cost-efficient defense solution providing an increased capability of early threat recognition and improved perimeter control.

BENEFITS

-Vehicle mounted multisensor system
-Easy to deploy / pack
-Long time surveillance scenarios
-Common user interface with multiple display units
-Cost efficient
-Covert surveillance equipment

WIDE RANGE OF USAGE

MGS3 ‘Scout’ is designed for long range security patrols, for controlling large areas and defending mobile targets, and for situations where security demands a perpetual adaptation of reconnaissance patterns. The operators of an MGS3 ’Scout’ will be able to quickly redefine the boundaries of the controlled area to instantly react to any situation that may arise.

OVERVIEW

The MGS3 ’Scout’ is a vehicle equipped with a number of surveillance modules, a PGSR-3i ‘Beagle’ radar unit, an electro optical sensor array and a Command Center.
The PGSR-3i ‘Beagle’ provides continuous observation of a large area detecting any movements, while the electro optical sensor array provides detailed picture of any detected targets for accurate identification useable in both day and night operation.
The electro optical head and the radar are mounted on retractable masts. The vehicle is assembled with a leveling system in order to stabilize and level the sensors. The high capacity battery system provides enough power for long time surveillance scenarios, but the working hours can be extended by a backup generator.The operating platform, Pro Patria Electronics’ unique Adaptive Multisensor System, presents an easy to operate user interface, offering the possibility of multi-tasking and educated decision-making to the operator. The software is capable of utilizing different map formats and displaying the detected targets over the map. The video of the cameras and the control functions are also integrated into the same system proving even automatic slew-to-cue functions. Every surveillance data and user interaction is recorded and can be replayed for further analysis.
