March 2016 – Press Release
Next Gen Sensors Expand Situational Awareness: Innovative Algorithms’ Phalanx Shield Sensor System features detection ranges well in excess of current fielded systems, 7 classification types, double the autonomy of current products and offers new generation highly scalable ultra-low power communications.
Phalanx Shield is the next level of performance in technology, creating a new category – “Networked Autonomous Sensors” (NAS), advancing capabilities beyond yesterday’s Unattended Ground Sensors (UGS). NAS opens the door to machine learning, achieved through intelligent processing and algorithms, coupled with advanced communication technology and lower power consumption. This future capacity has the potential for reduced False Alarm Rates and increased detection range.
The Phalanx Shield Sensor system is offered in 4 models, the X3, X3-ER, Q5, & Q7, specifically tailored with the operator in mind. Improved and more intelligent detection devices offer a significant potential to improve Border Patrol Agent’s and Warfighter’s situational awareness, allowing a unique capability to detect threats.
