Surface to Air Missile-Position Ranking and Analysis System (SAM-PRAS) Software

Government pricing available. Please contact us today.

SAM-PRAS assists in the protection of aircraft and airports from stand-off threats such as Man-Portable Air Defence Systems (MANPADS), lasers, rockets, mortars, RPGs, and snipers. Using data about flight paths, taxiways, key potential targets, buildings, terrain, and weapon types, the software quickly identifies and prioritizes the threat from each of these weapons from attack points around airfields.

SAM-PRAS assists in the protection of aircraft and airports from stand-off threats such as Man-Portable Air Defence Systems (MANPADS), lasers, rockets, mortars, RPGs, and snipers. Using data about flight paths, taxiways, key potential targets, buildings, terrain, and weapon types, the software quickly identifies and prioritizes the threat from each of these weapons from attack points around airfields.

The analysis is presented in a variety of formats for briefing protection teams and commanders. If flight paths alter due to weather and changing tactical situations, the software reprioritizes each threat so that protection teams can be quickly re-deployed. Surveillance and mitigation plans can be overlaid onto the calculated threat areas to ensure coverage and provide situational awareness. SAM-PRAS is deployed worldwide with governments and militaries. It is used by the UK Police Forces, the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA), the Australian Department of Defence, the Australian Federal Police, the French Government, and the UK RAF Regiment, amongst others.
