The display is a technology demonstrator for future Army mobile command and control (C2) vehicles, integrating newly advanced radar, long-range cameras, and other sensors to detect and defeat threats such as weaponized small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS).
With its cutting-edge air domain awareness technology, LVSS fits in the back of the HUMVEE 2-CT, ready to provide counter-UAS; Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR); and force protection capabilities. The LVSS platform features a 16-ft. fully retractable mast that leverages a combination of 3D radar, electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) camera, plus RF detection and mitigation sensors to provide early warning alerts and recognition. Ready to meet the requirements of several Army programs, including Command Post Integrated Infrastructure (CPI2) and Ground-Based Operational Surveillance System-Expeditionary (GBOSS-E), the capability concept would aid commanders with multi-domain decision support in a mobile C2 vehicle.
Teledyne FLIR Defense also is introducing StormCaster-E, the latest in its StormCaster payload series designed for the company’s sUAS aircraft. The new long-range imaging sensor features a fully integrated EO camera built for demanding missions that require clear and precise imagery across daylight and low light conditions.
This first-time concept showcasing our LVSS in a HUMVEE truck illustrates how we can reduce the current command post footprint, while at the same time improve mobility and agility.
LVSS brings a host of sophisticated sensing technologies onto one platform. It provides mobile surveillance that can be quickly redeployed as threats change, a critical need on today’s battlefield as evidenced by events in Eastern Europe.
We’re also proud to launch our rugged new StormCaster-E payload, which marks a major leap forward in performance, line of sight stabilization, and range of motion for a low SWaP-C package.
