Our team has spent years designing, installing, and maintaining Mass Notification Systems, both in combat zones and here at home. Our life safety systems include indoor solutions that tie to fire alarm panels, outdoor speaker towers for wide area coverage, and localized AtHoc messaging directly to cell phones and e-mail.
Our engineers have extensive experience within the Counter Rocket, Artillery, Mortar (C-RAM) program utilized in Iraq and Afghanistan. C-RAM uses target acquisition sensors, including Firefinder and Lightweight Counter Mortar Radar, to detect and track fired rounds. The AN/TPQ-36 Firefinder radar system is produced by Northrop Grumman’s Electronic Systems sector. Once a threat is detected, audio and visual alarms sound to warn exposed soldiers. A fire-control subsystem predicts the mortar’s flight path, prioritizes targets, activates the warning system, and provides cueing data to defeat the mortar round while still in the air.
