“We are constantly upgrading MUSON. The team that develops and integrates the system provides the end-user with efficient, precise, and high-performance vehicles capable of recognizing, tracking, or detecting various targets,” an official from the company said. “Open architecture software allows MUSON to be autonomous i.e. collaboration with motion sensors placed at different distances along the border furrow, or large production areas and fields ”.

The MUSON system is integrated on a telescopic tower that can be unfolded at different heights, again according to customer requirements. The system is independent of the vehicle and can be operated at rest or in motion. Most often the system operators are two people.

In case of interest and modification, the system also allows it to be integrated on the infantry fighting armored vehicle turret, officials said.
