Persistent Surveillance


Support to Persistent Surveillance is a key business for Wisdom Tree


In conjunction with our partners, Wisdom Tree has provided support surveillance operations with the delivery of the first two Kestrel wide-area persistent surveillance systems to NAVAIR, after successful completion of testing at the Yuma, AZ Proving Grounds.


The Kestrel system is an aerostat-based, 360 degree, motion-imagery system that continuously covers an expansive area consistent with airborne platforms. The systems are being added as payloads to the Persistent Threat Detection System (PTDS) and Persistent Ground Surveillance Systems (PGSS) aerostats. Kestrel empowers the operators to track and locate activities of interest through the use of multiple viewer windows, watch-box trigger alerts, digital zoom, and sensor cross-cueing. Kestrel increases forward operating base protection and ISR support to forward deployed units. Kestrel continuously records and stores the entire 360-degree field of view for in-depth forensic analysis.


Wisdom Tree Operators and Analysts have proven themselves fully capable of handling the high requirements necessary to fulfill the needs of Persistent Surveillance.
