In the Middle East and North Africa, border protection technology continues to become more integral to homeland security operations. SRC has already begun to play a vital role in bolstering the border security and force protection capabilities of the MENA countries by supplying multiple surveillance systems to the region.
The Lightweight Counter-Mortar Radar (LCMR) family of systems provides continuous 3-D, 360-degree surveillance and 3-D rocket, artillery and mortar location using a non-rotating, electronically steered antenna. The radars perform with a track-while-scan capability allowing for the simultaneous detection and tracking of multiple threats fired from separate locations.
Once a RAM threat is detected, the radar sends an early warning message indicating that a round is incoming. After sufficient data is collected to enable an accurate point of origin, the weapon’s location is reported back for a counterfire response from any integrated system.
Today, more than 1,000 LCMR systems have been delivered to the U.S. and its allies, making it the most widely fielded counterfire radar in the world.
These lifesaving systems share the following benefits:
- Low lifecycle cost
- Unattended remote operation
- Easily transportable with rapid emplacement in challenging locations
- Ruggedized with no moving parts for minimal maintenance
- Rooftop, tower, tripod or vehicle mountable
- Network ready for integration with FAAD network
- Capable of fulfilling multiple missions simultaneously
