The PMS2 ‘Sentinel’ is offering a lightweight, cost-efficient and easy to deploy solution optimized for silent battery operation with long runtime. The system provides a very good Return of Investment solution for the user.
The system integrates 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 Sensor and the Radar are mounted on their individual tripods and connected to the Operator Unit via cables and interface boxes. The standard Army batteries provide enough power for 8 hours surveillance scenarios, but the independent operating time can be extended with extra battery sets or crew transportation light truck generator/battery.
The operating platform is the Pro Patria Electronics Ltd developed ADAMS (ADAptive Multisensor System), and provides an easy to operate user interface, offering the possibility of multi-tasking and educated decision-taking for 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 automatic slew-to-cue functions. Surveillance data and user interaction is recorded and can be replayed for further analysis.
