SAN FRANCISCO —
July 23, 2012 —
URS has been awarded a five-year contract for the production of Lighting Kit Motion Detector (LKMD) Systems by the U.S. Army Contracting Command, Natick, MA.
LKMD is a small, modular, unattended, tactical, ground sensor-based early warning system providing early detection and warning of intrusions. LKMD provides enhanced force effectiveness and situational awareness during all types of combat operations or missions. LKMD further enhances force protection by operating as a tactical, stand-alone system, a supplemental device for use with other force protection and physical security systems, or as part of an integrated layered situational awareness concept.
LKMD provides programmable responses of illumination and/or sound, resulting in increased operational reaction time for individuals, teams, squads or platoons. Capable of being programmed and placed into operation quickly, LKMD allows the soldier to remotely program response configurations and is quickly recoverable. When an intrusion is detected, the system provides a pre-programmed response of audible/silent alarms and sends data to a hand-held remote control. Upon detection of a target entering a specified area, it activates light modules providing a pre-programmed illumination response.
