The UGF, which contains the MUGI (Mini Unattended Ground Imager) integrated with a tactical radar, provides the ultimate solution for a known problem - geographical coverage gaps in border protection. The radar continuously scans a sector of 90°, delivering persistent surveillance, with an automatic detection range of up to2 km. The system can be triggered by the radar, Unattended Ground Sensors (UGS-acoustic, seismic, etc.), or integral VMD (in the MUGI) and cue the MUGI's Day & Night (IR) cameras to the suspicious event's location. The system also serves as a data HUB for other UGS, with the ability to continuously relay the video and event data to HQ. The Day & Night (VGA uncooled thermal) cameras play a critical role in determining whether an unauthorized activity is taking place, thus preventing false alarms.
MUGI - Mini Unattended Ground Imager - is a fully operational system that provides ground forces with real-time, persistent covert surveillance. Specially designed to be camouflaged for quick deployment in special operations, the system gathers information 24/7 from a hidden spot. Using its IR Imager or CCD camera, MUGI sends live video streams to the C4I center, significantly enhancing situational awareness.
The system, which enables long mission duration, provides an Automatic Mode for Video Motion Detection (VMD) and a Remote Detection Mode, which is externally triggered by the UGS. A single station controls multiple sensors and can be connected to other UGS - creating a network of hidden sensors. MUGI's motionless, noiseless and reflectionless characteristics contribute to its sophisticated camouflage.
