Surveillance Systems

MLS offers a choice of rugged Electro Optical and Radar surveillance solutions to meet both short range and long range requirements. All our solutions are suitable for the extreme climatic conditions of the Middle East and are incredibly user friendly to keep training requirements to an absolute minimum.


MLS offers both a lightweight radar for detecting vehicles out to 15km as well as a long range radar for detecting vehicles out to 35km. The radar has, at its core an X Band radar, which can be co-mounted on a single mast, with a range of electro-optical sensors. The Display and Integration software provides the user with a clear situational awareness picture, with radar targets displayed over GIS information, current EO pictures (with daylight and thermal pictures displaying concurrently within a “picture within picture” scenario), and the simplest of operator control actions to direct the camera to the chosen radar target (“slew to cue”).


The software supports the export of target data and video to multiple locations. Each instance of the software can accept inputs from, and control, up to four radar heads and any number of electro-optical devices, via a Local Area Network (LAN). For control room purposes, an instance of the AFS software can be configured to accept inputs, and control, up to four subordinate instances of software, thereby allowing for an integrated surveillance picture to be presented and controlled across 16 separate radar heads.
