The LRIP has resulted from the meticulous Milestone C review process and the Defense Acquisition Board’s approval during December 2009, which included criteria such as operational assessment, successful evaluation of the test, anti-tamper provisions, information assurance features, mature software capability, minimal production risk, supportability and interoperability.

The U-UGS and the T-UGS of Textron Defense Systems sense, categorize, locate and monitor threats for providing war-fighters with near real-time actionable intelligence. The T-UGS variant includes small, robust, ground-based, sturdy, small networked gadgets that deliver an early warning system. This system can be remotely operated under all weather conditions. Honeywell International and Textron Defense Systems jointly develop the U-UGS version that is a hand-emplaced, wireless sensors system that can be utilized for securing confined places, buildings, alleys, tunnels, caves, and sewers.

Textron Defense Systems’ General Manager and Senior Vice President, Mark Catizone informed that unattended ground sensors are capable of increasing the confidence and protection of war-fighters who face the dangers and demands in mission critical situations.
