The Tactical Unmanned Ground Sensor EO/IR node is part of the of the Army’s Future Combat Systems. The EO/IR node can see in visible and infrared light and transmit a picture, through a nearby tactical UGS gateway node, back to an operator. Other sensors in the UGS family detect nuclear, biological and chemical threats, as well as ground movement. The four components of the system were on display at the Association of the United States Army’s Institute of Land Warfare Winter Symposium and Exposition in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
