NATO AGS (Alliance Ground Surveillance) Program

NATO AGS (Alliance Ground Surveillance) Program

Leonardo plays a key role in the NATO AGS (Alliance Ground Surveillance) program: the complete system comprises air, ground, mission operation and support elements and performs all-weather, persistent, wide-area terrestrial and maritime surveillance in near real-time.

The system helps protect ground troops and civilian populations, improve border control and maritime safety, help with the fight against terrorism and enhance crisis management and humanitarian assistance operations in response to natural disasters. The NATO AGS system’s air segment includes five unmanned Global Hawk Block 40 aerial systems and their control station (AVMC2).

The ground segment comprises a number of ground stations in various configurations which provide data-link connectivity, data-processing and exploitation capabilities and interfaces for interoperability with C2ISR systems.

Leonardo was involved in the system's ground segment providing the Mission Operation Support (MOS), two Transportable General Ground Stations (TGGS) and the Wide Band Data Link (WBDL) which provides line-of-sight communication between the ground segment and the system’s unmanned aerial vehicles.
