The surveillance function of MUROS S relies on radar techniques for the detection of moving targets, on communication interceptors for the detection of suspect communication sources, and on acoustic sensors for the location of noise events.
The additional electro-optical/infrared sensors are aimed at fine tracking and recognition of the detected threats. MUROS S allows then fusing the information coming from all the available sensors in order to compile the tactical picture of moving actors in the Area of Interest, and attempt at classification and recognition of these entities.
The final aim is to assess the actual threat posed by the actors and recognize any anomalous or malicious action.
MUROS S could be equipped with sensors that are specific for the maritime environment, such as maritime VHF/UHF radios and automatic identification system (AIS) receiver, and the corresponding IT infrastructure. In this case our system targets maritime scenario and specifically "hot spots", e.g. port areas, channels or oil rigs in support of standard coastal vessel traffic monitoring systems.
