Sarnoff awarded subcontract for TerraSight ground stations for PGSS use

PRINCETON, USA: Sarnoff Corp. has been awarded a subcontract by NEANY Inc. issued under a prime contract with the Naval Air Systems Command to provide TerraSight Ground Stations (TGS) for use in the Persistent Ground Surveillance System (PGSS).

The TerraSight Ground Stations will run Sarnoff’s TerraSight video exploitation software.

PGSS is a rapidly fielded system that includes a sensor-equipped, helium-filled aerostat platform. The system increases intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance capabilities and provides a more complete surveillance picture through inclusion of information from new sensor systems.

TerraSight is a field-proven, advanced C4ISR-enabling solution that provides the theater with a common operating picture that fuses multiple real-time video and data feeds from a variety of sensors. Video and data feeds are then overlaid onto a 3D terrain map in real time.

“US Central Command has stated an urgent need to protect forward operating bases,” said Mark Clifton, Sarnoff’s Acting president and CEO. “The TerraSight Ground Station will help PGSS quickly and cost effectively get into the field and provide full situational understanding where it’s needed most.”
