detection against laser rangefinders, target designators, beamriders and radar waves
LAWAREC is a distributed modular detection system used for the protection of mobile and stationary objects against laser rangefinders, target designators, beamriders and detection of radar waves.
Modular system of detection is primarily aimed at the protection of mobile objects against observation and recognition by laser and microwave means as well as laser aimed and guided weapon systems.
The system consists of a control unit and two types of detection modules, which contain either only the laser or a combination of laser and microwave detectors. The modules are connected to the control unit by a daisy-chain using a LONWORKS control network, which guarantees system reliability even in the case of partial damage.
The control unit located inside the object processes incoming information from individual modules, evaluates them, and then offers the operator a summary of the laser and radar activities of the enemy. Simultaneously it suggests a solution to the actual situation (like firing smoke grenades) which in semi-automatic mode waits for the operator's confirmation and in automatic mode directly executes the countermeasures to defeat enemy activities.
