Dual-Sensor Flash-Detection System for Aerostats and Masts

Serenity is an advanced hostile fire-detection (HFD) system intended for garrison force protection. The flash-detection system combines electro-optical (EO) and acoustic sensors to pinpoint the origin of heavy weapons fire and explosive detonations from up to 10 kilometers away in any direction. This enables a friendly response force to rapidly react to, and potentially deter, further enemy attack.

Weighing under 70 lbs., Serenity can be mounted on both masts and aerostats. On an aerostat, it can be coupled with the Kestrel and Simera wide-area motion imagery (WAMI) systems, providing operators with additional near real-time and archived imagery. Serenity can also be employed as a stand-alone unit.

The Serenity system has a 98 percent accuracy rate, generating fewer false positives than standard single-sensor HFD systems.

Serenity features include:

  • 360-degree, day-night coverage of up to 10 kilometers (6.21 miles) in any direction
  • Lightweight – under 65lbs
  • Low false positive rates
  • Integrates with existing surveillance systems for automated video cueing
