Maintaining continuous aerial security is a daunting task. Threats such as low-flying, extremely fast aircraft can take advantage of the earth’s curvature and exploit terrain obstructions. This renders ground-based radars unable to provide target information in time to take appropriate action. Slow, low flying missiles with a small cross section may also avoid early detection and pose a significant threat. Manned aerial surveillance can decrease the risk for short periods of heightened alert, but the operational costs are much too high for extended use. To meet this airborne coverage challenge effectively and inexpensively, TCOM developed the 71M Low Altitude Surveillance System. With over 1,000,000 hours of operation these systems are the only operational airborne defense assets to routinely provide the continuous round-the-clock, low altitude target detection information needed to secure the skies.
Air Defense /Aircraft Monitoring
TCOM Air Surveillance Systems are the solution.
The View From Above:
TCOM air surveillance systems utilize the largest class of tethered aerostats which can routinely operate at elevations of 15,000 feet. The aerostats have the payload size, weight and power capacity to support high performance, long range radars that can unmask aircraft operating well below the coverage pattern of ground based radars. The aerostat borne radar can detect these targets, acquire track very quickly and maintain track on quickly maneuvering targets. In addition to the radar, the aerostat can simultaneously support passive surveillance payloads. GCI radios on the aerostat allow direct voice communications between air controllers and their interceptors even at very low altitudes. The extended range of LASS, along with the ability to operate continuously for weeks on end provides security forces with the intelligence necessary to detect threats far earlier than ground-based systems alone. Early detection affords more time to react.
System In Action
Easily Meet Changing Requirements:
TCOM Air solutions are as versatile as they are effective. Despite the massive size of the fully-inflated aerostats, the complete systems are easily transported, and can be deployed in nearly any environment. Mooring stations are either stationary – to be deployed in one location for an extended period; or fully transportable – built into standard trailers. Although TCOM Air solutions are readily available, individual systems can also be modified to better meet the needs of each mission.
Monitoring territorial waters on a round-the-clock basis while providing intelligence in time to take appropriate action is a major challenge to many nations. Ground-based and shipboard systems have a limited range against surface targets, while continuous use of aircraft is prohibitively expensive. Nations need an effective and affordable system that offers continuous, wide-area maritime surveillance and timely provision of target information.
Early Intrusion Alert
TCOM Sea Surveillance Systems are the solution.
Take to the Skies:
TCOM Sea surveillance systems use our medium-class tethered aerostats, equipped with an advanced maritime radar, thermal imaging and optical sensors, and communications payloads that detect and track maritime targets at distances of 60 nautical miles and beyond. A single sea surveillance system can cover thousands of square miles for weeks at a time at the lowest possible hourly cost for an airborne asset. The early detection and direct communications with air and sea assets affords the critical window of time to evaluate the situation, coordinate forces and engage, if required.
System In Action
Easily Meet Changing Requirements:
The versatility of the sea surveillance system makes it ideal for responding to requirements or threats that change rapidly. The system is fully transportable and can be easily relocated with no site preparation. Although fully mature, the system can be shaped to better meet the needs of the client. Additional capabilities such as passive surveillance and remote data linking can be included.
Along hostile borders or in troubled interior regions, ground forces and civilian populations are at constant risk of attack. Well-armed insurgents use the cover of night to initiate surprise attacks and plant explosive devices. Without adequate continuous surveillance, enemy forces can inflict major damage. Ground-based radars and day/night optical sensors alone cannot provide the line of sight needed to overcome terrain obstructions and defeat these threats in a timely manner. Continuous operation of manned or unmanned aircraft is too costly and difficult to maintain. Therefore, security forces need an effective and affordable elevated land surveillance system that offers continuous, wide-area surveillance, while providing target information rapidly and reliably.
Anti-Terror & Insurgent Monitoring
TCOM Land Surveillance Systems meet mission requirements worldwide.
TCOM Land surveillance systems employ small, medium or large aerostats depending upon the nature of the threat, the operational site, location and required operational altitude. Each aerostat is equipped with proven payloads that are designed to detect and track targets over even the most challenging terrain. TCOM aerostat systems typically carry cutting-edge optical sensors, thermal imaging systems, radars and passive communications intelligence technologies which provide ground forces with actionable data in a timely manner. This early detection of potential threats affords the critical window of time needed to coordinate forces and engage threats, if necessary.
System In Action
The versatility of TCOM land surveillance systems is unrivalled in the industry. Land-based aerostat solutions are available in fixed, transportable, or mobile configurations to meet a wide range of applications. The smallest systems are very mobile and can be operated with the aerostat aloft while on-the-move. Our smaller sized aerostats can also be deployed by helicopter lift when roads are impassible or non-existent. – See more at: http://www.tcomlp.com/land-surveillance-systems/#sthash.eqLcKt8q.dpuf
