Using digital beamforming radar, GroundAware continuously monitors areas of concern up to a range of 15 km in all weather and lighting conditions. When detected, intrusions are tracked in real time, as GroundAware automatically generates location/direction/speed details, slews cameras for visual assessment, triggers alarms, and sends alerts—it even classifies intruders as humans, animals, vehicles, or aircraft.
GroundAware is fully configurable, easy to integrate with other systems, and can be installed in a few hours. With its intuitive interface, GroundAware delivers rich situational awareness that critical infrastructure owners need to respond to intrusions as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.
For owner/operators needing a straightforward, cost-effective approach to CIP-014 perimeter security, GroundAware provides a powerful surveillance technology platform.

The long-range GA4120 surveillance sensor enables automated real-time monitoring of and response to physical security threats at critical sites.
GA 4120 SPECIFICATIONS
GA1360 brings a new level of 360° situational awareness for critical infrastructure perimeter protection.
GA1360 automates real-time detection, tracking, and response to intruders within 1-km range—that's more than 750 acres with a single sensor. Similar specifications as GroundAware GA4120 but with 1-km range and 500-m walker detection range.
GA9000 is the newest model in the GroundAware family of surveillance sensors. The GA9000 series of surveillance sensors introduces a new caliber of three-dimensional (3D) ground surveillance capabilities that enables detection, tracking, and response to threats on the ground and in low-altitude airspace.
GA9000 offers long-range power for detecting, tracking, classifying, and responding to threats caused by humans, animals, ground vehicles, aircraft, and even Class 1 and 2 drones. The result is that GA9000 users gain as much notice and response time as possible.
For traditional scanning radars, slower targets require longer dwell time, which means reduced revisit time and surveillance volume. This means a loss of valuable lead time and accuracy in threat detection.
The digital beamforming radar at the heart of GroundAware observes the entire sector in one dwell, detecting intrusions as they happen to instantaneously provide actionable information on potential threats.

Critical infrastructure security stakeholders can look to GroundAware to help them protect their perimeters and restricted areas at airports, power plants, electrical substations, drilling sites, prisons, forward operating bases, and other facilities. Any critical infrastructure with exposed perimeters and extensive grounds will benefit from GroundAware.
