Dual-Sensor Hostile Fire Detection
for Aerostats and Masts

Serenity is an advanced hostile fire detection (HFD) system that combines electro-optical (EO) and acoustic sensors to pinpoint the origin of heavy weapons and explosive detonations up to 10 kilometers away in any direction. This enables a response force to quickly identify,
rapidly react, and potentially deter enemy attacks.

FEATURES

Serenity can be employed as standalone system on both masts and aerostats (and, potentially, manned and unmanned aircraft as well). On an aerostat, it can also be coupled with a wide-area motion imagery (WAMI) system, providing operators with additional near real-time and archived imagery.

  • 360-degree area coverage of over 200 km sq
  • Combined EO and acoustic data provides high accuracy rate
  • Fewer false positives than standard single-sensor HFD systems
  • Integrates with existing surveillance systems for automated video cueing
  • Cues to existing Common Operating Pictures (COPs) and video surveillance systems to display location

MISSION SETS

The Serenity system is an affordable fire detection system adaptable to a variety of uses and ready for deployment to prevent attacks from becoming full-scale assaults.

Customers for the Serenity dual-sensor hostile fire detection system include both domestic and international government entities.

  • Force protection
  • Base protection

SERENITY OFFERS A DUAL SENSOR SOLUTION

Serenity combines two complementary sensors, an electro-optical (EO) flash detection sensor and an onboard acoustic sensor.
These sensors precisely locate and identify the geolocations of the launch and detonation of a variety of explosive and incendiary devices.

In combination with Kestrel WAMI and/or high-resolution camera systems, Serenity provides additional force protection by accurately cueing a suite of sensors to the location of hostile fire in surrounding areas.
