Dolph’s Pick: OWL Radar-Aided Surveillance

Another new high-tech offering on the block is the GroundAware GA9000 Series of Surveillance Sensor and Information Systems from Observation Without Limits (OWL) of Huntsville, Ala. For more than 40 years, this company has pioneered advanced surveillance technology.

The GA9000 delivers leading-edge 3D radar capabilities for detecting, tracking, classifying and responding to security threats posed by class 1 and class 2 drones, along with other low-flying aircraft, humans, animals and vehicles at up to 15 kilometers distance with a 360° field of view.

The GroundAware system’s digital beamforming radar quickly covers entire sectors in one dwell, whereas traditional scanning radars have delays in covering slower targets.
