Prowl is a low-power, smart imaging system Unattended Ground Sensor (UGS) system. Prowl addresses a critical need for augmenting radar tracks with a visual target confirmation. Prowl includes computer vision algorithms that deliver robust, high-resolution target imagery to the end-user C2 device.
Prowl features a co-mounts its radar and EOIR camera, which provides increased geo-registration accuracy as compared to traditional UGS/camera configurations set-up. The system supports both day and night operations through its combination of the high megapixel visible spectrum (EO) and long-wave infrared (LWIR) cameras that capture images of Prowl radar targets within the camera’s field of view and displays them to the users to enable more informed decisions regarding potential threats and their activities.
Prowl supports long field life by operating at very low power- only “waking up” when triggered by the Prowl radar. The camera integrates advanced object detection algorithms to automatically detect targets within its fixed field of view, digitally crop the image to the target, and send the image to the C2 device. Future releases will support additional object classification through a new deep learning platform to aid in the recognition of high-value targets, potential threats, and other objects and events of interest.
