GARD – Ground Anomaly Recognition and Detection System

Product Information


The GARD system will identify buried IEDs and IED-initiators such as command wires and pressure switches that come across its path, from a standoff distance of 50-100 m. It implements POC’s compound eye multispectral sensor design in the shortwave infrared (SWIR) to offer detection of disturbed ground (via spectral discrimination of the soil’s moisture content) in day or night with high probability of detection (Pd) and entirely passive operation (no radiation emitted). Highly accurate detection, and location of emplaced IEDs using automated threat detection algorithms. 50-100 m standoff detection of buried IEDs in the vehicle path possible due to selection of optics Day/night operation due to use of SWIR imaging technologies. Robust detection of IED initiators like command wires and pressure switches via ground disturbance detection. All weather operation – conduction cooled sealed package for all weather operation. Size, weight and power design for both man-portable and vehicle-mounted application: - Compact size (16 in. × 12 in. × 8 in.) - Light weight (15 lb) - Low power (28 DC,
