Paper Abstract

Modern naval warfare asks for alerting system able to detect classical & asymmetric threats in support to radar in environment in which radar has reduced performance (on or near the sea surface). More, capability to offer high resolution images helps in ship identification, coastal & harbor surveillance as well as night navigation and rescue. All these tasks can be performed by an infrared search and track (IRST) system. This paper describes the IRST named Silent Acquisition and Surveillance System (SASS), developed for the Italian Navy and the tests jointly carried out by SELEX GALILEO and Italian Navy to characterize the system.
