Description: The GATEKEEPER 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 GATEKEEPER 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 GATEKEEPER increases the update rate of detections and avoids the heavy maintenance workload of mechanical systems.

GATEKEEPER technology is resistant to jamming and automatically detects and tracks fast, agile and stealthy air threats simultaneously with surface asymmetric threats. GATEKEEPER uses a combination of LWIR (Low Wave Infrared) cameras and high resolution color TV cameras, making it an ideal sensor for the detection and classification of asymmetric, close range, surface threats in a tense security environment.
