The system offers greater search-area coverage, an easy user interface and pixel perfect visualization of multiple regions of interest.

Elbit Systems is introducing at Eurosatory 2016 the SupervisI – an innovative and easy to use infrared wide area persistent ISTAR system, enabling 24/7 activities with excellent night capabilities. Meeting a full range of ISTAR requirements, the new system is highly effective at detecting, tracking, and displaying visual motion imagery of moving air, ground and sea targets, making it ideally suited for border patrol, perimeter security, surveillance and counter-surveillance operations.

Through the use of cutting-edge digital imaging and processing technologies, SupervisIR provides high resolution wide-area (90-degree horizontal and 12.5- degree vertical) infrared surveillance, which is equivalent to approximately 150 thermal imagers placed side by side. The system also includes advanced automatic detection and extracting imagery feeds of targets in multiple regions of Interest. Visual investigation can be done in real time, or using a video on demand control, which can be used for backtracking the target to any point and These unprecedented system capabilities can be further augmented by the use of additional sensors, such as monitoring radars , and an advanced investigating sensor, the LVCR, which is a multispectral long-range observation and target acquisition system to provide a synergetic capability that completes the full targeting process from detection and recognition. This process is executed by SupervisIR, through engagement of the LVCR, which is slewed accordingly. SupervisIR is suitable for medium to short-range ISTAR operations. It can be mounted in fixed positions (on a mast or tower), or rapidly deployed in ad-hoc environments. Through its superb field of view, the system is applicable to almost all operational scenarios requiring continuous ISTAR capability, enabling operators to effectively and autonomously encounter ground, maritime and low flying aerial objects within a large variety of landscapes.

SupervisIR can be remotely operated from multiple platforms (including a laptop or tablet) via a dedicated user interface, or a networked C2I that utilizes its open architecture. The easy to use system is also fully interoperable with legacy sensors and battle command networks.

“We have taken cutting edge surveillance capabilities typically found in aerial platforms and incorporated them into a fully-persistent ground-based system that enhances our broad portfolio of innovative products and solutions for effective and flexible ISTAR operations,” commented Elad Aharonson, General Manager of Elbit Systems’ ISTAR Division. “SupervisIR is not only a key advantage for detecting threats in a large area, but also provides an accessible, reliable and affordable alternative for closing intelligence and targeting cycles, all while significantly reducing Size, Weight, Power and Cost (SWAP-C)”.
