Anduril’s WISP (Wide-Area Infrared System for Persistent Surveillance) is a fully passive, AI-enabled, 360-degree wide-area high quality imaging system that enables persistent automated threat detection and situational awareness. The WISP is built on a unique transformative IR imager design that combines real-time AI and a compact hardware frame to support multiple defense missions.
WISP is intended to be deployed in the field and can be used for a wide range of tasks, such as detection and identification of individuals, vehicles, or (unmanned) aircraft. WISP reduces response times and provides you with 24/7 long-range passive surveillance of areas that could previously only be monitored periodically. It improves the coverage of critical areas and blind spots and because the WISP emits no signal, it can detect without being detected which is very suitable in high-risk environments.
The WISP is equipped with a variety of sensors and antennas, including a high-gain directional antenna for long-range communication interception and a GPS receiver for location tracking. It also includes a powerful computing platform capable of running advanced signal processing algorithms, and it can be programmed with custom software to suit specific mission requirements. The WISP system can be configured to operate on multiple platforms and domains to including fixed towers, tactical vehicles, maritime assets, or simply on a tripod fixed to a structure.
The WISP system is completely passive and cannot be jammed. Since WISP emits no signal, it can detect without being detected while retaining radar-like capability which is highly suitable for contested environments.
The WISP system can be configured to operate on multiple platforms and domains to including fixed towers, tactical vehicles, maritime assets, or simply on a tripod fixed to a structure. The adaptability of WISP allows it to service a number of missions ranging from base protection, counter drone, and maritime security.
WISP can easily be integrated into any GOTS or COTS C2 system. WISP is built using an open architecture software design and can easily be integrated with any other sensor system. WISP is currently integrated with CTC, MEDUSA, AGEON, FAAD-C2, MAFIA.
WISP can be operated 360 / 24 / 7 with a single operator to provide day and night alarm-based security against ground and airborne threats, across the entire 360 degree surroundings, using only a laptop workstation.
WISP can be used with different applications across a variety of domains and mission sets. By using the same underlying technology, WISP brings its capabilities to land, sea, and air applications. It provides support to missions such as border and base security, counter drone missions, and maritime surface threat detection. It can easily be integrated into any GOTS or COTS C2 system. WISP is built using an open architecture software design and can easily be integrated with any other sensor system. It is currently integrated with CTC, MEDUSA, AGEON, FAAD-C2 and MAFIA.
The WISP is designed to be easily deployable by a single operator, and it can be set up quickly and discreetly in the field. It can be used in a variety of environments, including urban and rural areas, and it is resistant to jamming and interference.
At the heart of the system lies Lattice, Anduril’s real-time battlefield management system. Lattice uses technologies like sensor fusion, computer vision, edge computing, and machine learning and artificial intelligence to detect, track, and classify every object of interest in an operator’s vicinity.
