Elbit Systems launches GroundEye
Elbit Systems recently unveiled GroundEye, a line of systems for ground-based wide-area, focused and persistent surveillance at the Israel HLS & Cyber Conference, taking place in Tel Aviv, Israel. The GroundEye line comprises advanced systems and capabilities in the field of imagery intelligence gathering, which together provide a complete picture and large Field of View (FOV), to a large number of users, in both real time and back-in-time, for forensic debriefing and in high-resolution.
GroundEye was developed specifically to address requirements raised by security and law enforcement agencies to improve operational responses against terrorism and homeland security threats such as border protection, facility security-related events, sporting events and mass public shootings.
Readily operable by one or more persons, the GroundEye surveillance system can be used to zoom into multiple target areas of interest, while offering easy maneuverability between different areas according to operational requirements, and facilitating continuous reception of data and video coverage as well as high-quality image resolution in all areas of surveillance, according to the company.
When deployed, the system provides ground force commanders insights on events occurring simultaneously but in different places, as well as the ability to acquire, record and investigate forensic data, in real time or ‘back-in-time’ (via video recording). In addition, the system enables creation of virtually closed-off areas (safe zones) that generate a virtual fence around the perimeter of any secure area.
