ART Midrange is a high-resolution radar system designed to address the demands of the Security and Defense market in two key applications: unregulated border surveillance and critical infrastructure protection.
With an instrumental detection range of 5000 meters, ART Midrange provides constant 24/7 wide area surveillance (78 km2) thus becoming a key element for modern sensor networks.
ART Midrange detects and tracks individuals and vehicles before, during and eventually after the trespassing of land borders or during their approach to security perimeter fences, walls or protection zones of critical infrastructure installations. The system maintains a high probability of detection for demanding targets such as individuals or low-profile vehicles while keeping an overall low false alarm rate.
ART Midrange adaptive detection algorithms provide outstanding performance regardless of the characteristics of a specific deployment scenario: i.e. landscape (plain, rough, presence of rivers, bays or lakes) or vegetation and for all-weather conditions (fog, snow, rain…).
The use of external sources of knowledge across all the levels of the system (geographic information, historic intrusion data) guarantees a high detection probability and false alarm rejection even in strong ground clutter environments (knowledge-aided sensor signal processing).
The ease of integration is another key benefit of ART Midrange. An internal Gigabit Ethernet Switch, external camera/unattended ground sensors interfaces or an XML-based protocol are some of the characteristics that allow a straightforward integration of the radar within a sensor network or preexisting security infrastructure.
Designed to improve the efficiency of its end users (Border Guards/CIP Security Services/Public Law Enforcement Services), ART Midrange features fully automatic operation (suitable for nontrained operators), remote management and is cost effective both for large and small scale deployments.
