At DSEI EXPAL Systems presented their Deployable Area Control System (D-ACS), an intelligent system of surveillance, control and protection of areas and roadways that has been specially designed to be quickly deployed and collected by a platoon in the field using battery power. D-ACS is therefore optimal for temporary protection of bases or passageways, although it can also be deployed for longer periods of time.
To protect the troops on the battlefield, D-ACS leverages the power of visual, radar and technological devices to process and provide reliable information in real time so that users can anticipate threats, coordinate responses and make better and faster decisions. It includes passive optronic and infrared sensors to identify and react against threats such as light vehicles and troops. EXPAL develops the software and hardware and integrates all the systems and devices to operate coordinately and efficiently to protect the troops on the battlefield.
The system has been developed in close collaboration with the Spanish General Direction of Armament and Material (DGAM) and has been tested by the Paratroopers Brigade (BRIPAC) of the Spanish Army. Other type of sensors can be integrated in the system to meet Armed Forces’ needs.
