* All above ranges are based on ideal environmental conditions

 The main functions of the MTDU are:

  • Early warning
  • Remote and on-border detection
  • Identification of illegal activities 
  • Detection and situation assessment by transforming raw data into essential information. - Allowing timely coordinated Interception of potential intruders.

 The MTDU consists of the following early-warning modules

  • Ground-surveillance electronic scan radar Detection.
  •  Panoramic view with video Content analysis.
  • Thermal /day-night visual tracking.

General Functions

  •  The MTDU increases the probability of early detection with low false alarm and false negative
    rates under various environmental conditions.
  • It supports and help everyday work of Land Border Security and any other public authorities may
    be engaged during abnormal events.
  • The system performs continuous monitoring and surveillance of potential intrusion threats,
    within a given time frame, preventing their entry into the protected territory allowing the forces
    to intercept and capture the prospect intruders in a timely manner.
  • The system observes the object initially detected by seamlessly combined Doppler E- scan radar technology and panoramic video content analytic to provide early warning of intruders over long rand short ranges and detect the target by assessing its key characteristics and provide auto matic, semi-automatic and manually directing of the thermal tracking unit to observe the target.
  • It detects moving targets under various environmental condition for 8 km range using E-scan
    radar, and slue to cue function to Visually track the detected target at 16Km/5Km using the
    thermal, day/night vision.
  • The panoramic features enable the system to view, monitor and track multiple target at the same
    time in addition to the ability to zoom in on covered area (180 Degree ) in both live and recorded mode thanks to 200 MP ultra-high resolution imaging.
  • Using Zoning feature gives the ability to overlay different types of zones, with different priorities and to program the zones to be sensitive to target size and/or speed.

 Alarm Response

Upon receiving an alarm from MTDU the control center initiate audible and visual notification and display the following:

  • Alarm area map showing the exact location detected target along with target information
    Such as type, speed and direction.
  • Large Panoramic View of the target area.
  • Panoramic View zoomed-in on target.
  • Visual tracking view.
  • Show the nearest available patrolling unit with its current location.
    All parts are designed to withstand harsh environments to meet Military application re-quirements for shock, vibration, temperature and dust/water ingression.
