As a model of Swedish excellence, Exensor – subsidiary of Bertin Technologies – is the leader of the Unattended Ground Sensor (UGS) field. Exensor provides the Flexnet capability, a tailored, flexible and modular solutions, to the Armed Forces worldwide, for varied protection and surveillance applications.

The Flexnet Unattended Ground Sensor (UGS) system is composed of passive, wireless, battery-powered sensors and cameras that can be rapidly deployed on the field for detection, classification and identification of threats and targets. Designed for the protection of soldiers and the surveillance of critical areas, this scalable system offers seismic, acoustic and infrared capabilities. Through fusion of covertly deployed sensors and cameras, people and vehicles can be detected, classified and identified without exposing either the personnel or the system. Within a Flexnet UGS system, each individual item – sensor, camera or gateway – acts as a network node and communicates with other devices in the system to route data back to the Command and Control system. In addition to range extension, the self-healing network improves communication reliability and sensor deployment flexibility. Fully scalable and customizable depending on the users’ needs, Flexnet UGS capability acts as a high-performance force multiplier, and considerably reduces the cognitive load of soldiers on the field.

Initially developed for self-protection of Armed Forces, the Flexnet UGS system supplied by Exensor can now be used for a wide variety of military and civilian applications, among which:

  • Force protection
  • Critical asset protection
  • Counter-mobility operations
  • Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR)
  • Border control
