CRANE-97255
Responding to the increasing threats to high dollar value and exposed naval equipment, the Navy developed the Inegrated Radar, Optical Surveillance, and Sighting System (IROS3). This system includes the capability to surveil, track, and respond to threats in a manual or semi-automated fashion. The core of the system consists of an intuitive user interface coupled with software drivers for exernal devices (e.g. cameras, spotlights, and audible warning systems) and a digital input/output card capable of up to 32 connections. This system, along with a control console, electro-optical system, audible hailing device, spotlights and a stabilized weapon mount was demonstrated on board the USS Ramage (DDG 61) in 2003 . The first system installed for operational use occurred in 2007.

Advantages:
-Available for rapid deployment on a laptop
-Remotely operable
-Scalable based on need
-Adaptable to newer technology
-Provides both surveillance and response
-Capable of 32 digital I/O connections
-Operator console can network and control multiple external devices
-Puts personnel out of the line of fire
-Both lethal and non-lethal response possible

Potential Applications:
The IROS3 system can be deployed on exposed high value installations. Recent stress on the need to protect critical infrastructure was established via a Presidential directive PDD-63, Homeland Security Presidential Directive, HSPD-7 and the European Programme for Infrastructure Protection (EPCIP). The system has military and commercial applications and can be used to protect utilities, transportation hubs, buildings, and gather places.
