  • Persistent Surveillance, Complete Awareness:

    ESEN Aerostat Wide Area Surveillance System (AeroWAS), which is a wide-area motion imagery (WAMI) solution, provides persistent surveillance from aerostat platforms.

    Aerostat WAS

    Unlike straw-alike looks and small circle projections of traditional airborne surveillance systems, AeroWAS provides holistic surveillance over very large areas via aerostat-carried EO/IR sensors. While surveilling overall picture, AeroWAS is capable to utilize multiple live feed chip-outs of areas of interest at very high resolution.


    • Simultaneous moving target detection & tracking, up to 2000 objects (Humans, vehicles, etc.) 
    • Live feed of multiple areas of interest at high resolution (chip-out) 
    • Definition of alarm and interest region, event marks 
    • On the ground image processing and data recording 
    • Live presentation of detected objects on 3-D Geographical Information System (GIS) 
    • Geolocation of detected objects 
    • Geo-registration 
    • Seek, pause, search and replay function
