BAE Systems to develop onboard processor for ARGUS-IR

  • 07-Sep-2010 09:42 EDT

Following development of DARPA's daytime persistent surveillance system, BAE Systems has been awarded an additional $49.9 million contract to develop the advanced processor for the agency's nighttime, IR system—the Autonomous Real-time Ground Ubiquitous Surveillance–Infrared (ARGUS-IR). ARGUS-IR provides real-time, high-resolution, nighttime video surveillance capability for U.S. combat forces for detecting, locating, tracking, and monitoring events on battlefields and in urban areas. The system is being developed for compatibility with a variety of unmanned aerial systems. BAE's Electronic Solutions Sector, headquartered in Nashua, NH, will be responsible for the design, development, manufacture, and test of the ARGUS-IR Airborne Processing Subsystem (APS). Additionally, BAE will integrate a high-resolution IR sensor subsystem over the course of the 32-month, eight-phase project.
