Description: ARTEMIS is a passive electro-optical sensor array capable of providing support for anti-air warfare (AAW), anti-surface warfare (ASuW) and situational awareness to surface ships particularly in the littoral environment. Instead of mechanically scanning through 360-degree ARTEMIS employs multiple static sensor heads incorporating large IR focal plane arrays, an advanced optical design and dedicated processing algorithms on COTS processing hardware. This way ARTEMIS increases the update rate of detections and avoids the heavy maintenance workload of mechanical systems.
ARTEMIS technology is resistant to jamming and automatically detect and track fast, agile and stealthy air threats simultaneously with surface asymmetric threats. ARTEMIS uses MWIR (Medium Wave Infrared) cameras and is dedicated to detecting small air targets at extended ranges, while retaining an impressive surface detection capability. The French Navy has ordered the ARTEMIS system to equip 17 FREMM multi-mission frigates to provide Infrared Search & Track (IRST).
