SCORPION Unattended Target Recognition Systems

SCORPION Unattended Target Recognition System

This fully autonomous Unattended Ground Sensor (UGS) system comprises day and night vision Electro-optic (EO), seismic, and magnetic sensors; wireless local RF communications; and a remote communications gateway. The remote gateway provides secure two-way, beyond line-of-sight, communications for around the clock global surveillance of time critical targets.

The robust and expandable, open interface, architecture system is built from commercial-off-the shelf (COTS) components, and SCORPION™ is adaptable to sensors from most vendors.

  • EO and IR sensors provide persistent data and imagery to enable target classification, identification, GPS location, and actionable intelligence for targets up to 800 meters away
  • Detects/classifies vehicles from 100 meters away
  • Detects personnel from 30 meters away
  • Greater than 95% probability of detection/recognition when optimized for less than 5% false alarm rate
  • Intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) supports mission planning, information tracking, and remote sensor control
  • Man-portable, lightweight, easy to deploy and transport in two rucksacks
  • Low operating power/long battery life extends mission life up to six months
  • Over 800 systems fielded

Northrop Grumman's SCORPION™ Long & Short Range Target Recognition Systems provide critical worldwide data and imagery for long or short duration military and intelligence gathering operations.
