BAE Systems says it will lead a Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) programme to develop a new class of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) systems and capabilities.

The US$18.5m, 30-month, Autonomous Real-Time Ground Ubiquitous Surveillance Imaging System (ARGUS-IS) programme will see BAE develop, integrate and demonstrate advanced ISR systems and capabilities for wide-area persistent monitoring for use in manned and unmanned vehicles.

The programme aims to develop a compact system combining a multi-gigapixel, high-resolution sensor, wide-field optics, an ultra-high-bandwidth, real-time airborne processing system and a ground station for interactive multi-target designation, tracking and exploitation.

The airborne processing system will simultaneously and continuously detect and track the presence and motion of thousands of small or large targets over an area covering tens of square miles.
