Early warnings are key
Our CBRNe Automatic Warning and Reporting System (AWR) consists of both hardware and software, designed to provide early warnings to units and personnel on the battlefield. The decision support module helps the operator make fast and accurate decisions, which is a key factor in limiting the effects of CBRNe threats. The AWR system can be installed in headquarters, camps and vehicles as well as on hand-held computers and soldier systems.
A consolidated threat picture
The AWR system provides unique efficiency by integrating detection, identification, monitoring, warning and reporting as well as decision support in a single system. This feature negates the need for deploying CBRNe specialists widely throughout the operational forces, reducing training and personnel management costs.
Any type of sensor
The system can use virtually any type of sensor from any manufacturer; meteorological, chemical, biological, radiological, positioning or video sensors to mention a few.
The AWR system is based on a modular and open architecture, which allows users to change sensor configuration over time in response to changing threats. All connected units, from fixed and mobile sensors to soldier systems are fully integrated into the system.
How it’s all connected
The below graphic explains how it is all connected. There are enablers necessary to make it work. Then we add on the different area protection nodes, which makes up a complete CBRNe sensor network.
- Adaptable and modular system that meets your operational requirements
- A sensor network with distributed data enables early warnings which shortens time to action
- Combines sensor supervision with decision support and sensor fusion to minimise false alarms
- Remotely operated sensors from all places in the system reduces the need for CBRNe experts
- Expandable with fixed, deployable and mobile sensors and capabilities
- Automatic CBRNe reporting and role-based information sharing
- Combination of systems together with a simulated training environment for CBRNe substances
- AWR system that is deployed and in use with proven features and integrated CBRNe capability
The AWR system is modular and may be installed in any place where you want to receive warnings and reports of existing dangerous substances in the area. This could be in headquarters, camps, vehicles as well as on hand-held computers and soldier systems.
Based on Safir SDK
Our AWR system is a generic software platform based on Safir SDK. Parts of the Safir platform are Open Source under the GNU/GPL license agreement. Open source software enables greater independence for the customer. Sensor suppliers can choose if they wish to deliver the sensors alone or as a combined package of sensors and software.
- TIM-warning in accordance with STANAG 2229
- Information structured according to JC3IEDM
- Applicable versions of ATP-45 (STANAG 2103) and AEP-45 (STANAG 2497) are used for warning and reporting
- Reports are sent in ADatP-3 format (STANAG 5500)
- The software is designed to be part of other C2 system, which means that a service oriented architecture (SOA) is used
- The system handles information that is classified as secret/restricted
