Description: The Ground Based Operational Surveillance System (GBOSS) is a tower-based elevated sensor system with networked remote operational capability delivering increased situational awareness. The sensor system is derived from the sensor suite utilized on the RAID aerostat-based surveillance system. The United States Marine Corps (USMC) awarded the initial $60 million GBOSS contract to Raytheon on April 9, 2008. The USMC goal is to use these sensor systems to enhance its ability to detect hostile troop movements in Iraq.

The sensor suite provided to GBOSS includes primary infrared camera, a second electro-optical infrared sensor and ground-based radar networked into a single remote ground control station. All in, these sensors will provide persistent surveillance around military facilities and other key locations.
