Rockwell Collins today introduced its PSR-500 Perimeter Surveillance Radar (PSR) at Eurosatory 2016. PSR-500 is a high resolution, compact radar with the capability to track and record intrusions in all weather.
“The PSR-500 couples high performance with low power consumption to bring users affordable and reliable technology,” said Claude Alber, vice president and managing director, Europe, Middle East and Africa for Rockwell Collins. “Demand for this type of radar technology is growing to address the need for surveillance of geographical borders, critical infrastructures, industrial, commercial or sporting areas.”
PSR-500 identifies mobile targets in all weather conditions, including rain and fog, 24 hours a day. It adapts to the surveillance needs of many types of locations, due to its relatively short range and target behavior analysis algorithms.
In addition, the radar sensor can be combined with a camera that is controlled by radar detections, allowing for multi-target, highly accurate video visualization and real-time recording. Compared to similar surveillance radars, PSR-500 requires less energy and emits low radiation, posing no health risk to the user.
Deployment of the radar system at a railroad station, hydroelectric dam and nuclear power plant are key examples of uses for PSR-500’s sensitive intrusion monitoring. The radar system is suitable for locations such as airports, industrial and military sites, as well as public or private urban sites.
