May 2021, MARSS Group announce the rollout of a $50million plus next-generation defence system, integrating state-of-the-art sensors and countermeasures developed to offer total situational awareness against multi-dimensional threats.

Designed, delivered and accepted in under eighteen months, this latest project is one of the largest multi-dimensional surveillance systems at work within the Middle East, supporting critical military operations and contributing to the protection of thousands of lives and billions of assets through class leading MARSS NiDAR technology.

The scalable solution will protect essential infrastructure from air, surface and underwater threats at both short and long range, with operating distances of up to fifteen kilometres. All integrated into a single intuitive tactical platform that can easily expand in both range and capability in line with operational growth. 

Boasting class-leading radar, EO-IR, RF detection and key countermeasure capability to identify, verify, alert and engage hostile targets, NiDAR’s artificial intelligence is primed to deliver intelligent smart detection with minimal false alarms, whilst never compromising on situation awareness or control.

Developed exclusively by MARSS and currently protecting countless lives and assets around the globe, NiDAR protects against surging UAS, USV and UGV threats in addition to enhancing ground security support, essential for the critical protection of both mission infrastructure and personnel.

Rob Balloch, VP Sales for MARSS Group commented that “from contract signature and as prime contractor we completed site acceptance of the first asset in less than sixteen months, despite the added complications of C-19.”

“Expertise and excellence once again combined, and through close co-operation with our partners MARSS Group have delivered what may well be the largest multi-dimensional sensor installation anywhere in the world.”

Consistent with MARSS reputation for complete turnkey support, next steps for this project include installation across multiple sites, alongside onsite training and development for command and control operatives.

Ongoing system optimization for mission objectives and the scoping and future proofing of NiDAR and related AI technologies will also play key roles in continued protection against asymmetrical threats for all NiDAR installations.

The project and it’s on-time completion are the latest in a line of successes for MARSS, who have once again proven their time-served expertise while highlighting a unique and respected agility within the industry.
