ASIO Ground Surveillance
Ground Surveillance Mission

Ground surveillance missions require large area scanning to detect, track and recognize unauthorized intruders such as criminal/illegal entities. Regardless of the terrain, missions of securing of ground infrastructure and the national borders have become increasingly difficult hence requiring flexible, high-performance multi-sensor systems, installed and operated from a variety of platforms.

ASIO Ground Surveillance Solution

BIRD’s ASIO ground surveillance configuration provides customers with an integrated Aerial-Land operational solution. It provides our customer’s operational surveillance and security forces, including Fixed Wing surveillance aircrafts, surveillance helicopters, ground vehicular forces and HQ commanders, with an effective, integrated, real-time situational awareness overview before, during and after surveillance operations and special missions.
ASIO provides the capability to detect and track possible terrorist activity and movements of unauthorized personal, as well as coordinate a law enforcement response to these threats.
The solution enables customers to patrol and survey their strategic assets and areas of interest in any weather or lighting condition. When a threat is detected by the ASIO Special Mission Aircraft mission operator, the detection location, live video and operational data is immediately relayed to other ASIO fixed wing aircraft and ASIO Special Mission Helicopters for further tracking. In parallel, target data and live airborne video is sent to HQ and ASIO land vehicles for effective event management and/or interception of the suspected targets on ground.
ASIO provides a defense-in-depth, layered approach to preventing persons or items from illegally accessing ground assets and sensitive infrastructure while leveraging its force strength by applying aviation and ground assets all sharing a real time unified situational awareness picture.
