As the new year turns, HGH Infrared Systems kept forging forward in its effort to supply those protecting our borders with a unique and valuable solution, the IR Revolution™ 360. The US – Mexico border has always been important to monitor and illegal human and drug trafficking find new ways every day to elude detection and prosecution. And with economic capabilities tightening, more cost effective and high performance COTS solutions are desired.
HGH has partnered with Osen-Hunter Group to assist local law enforcement in their long range, wide-area surveillance missions by integrating the IR Revolution™ 360 in existing intelligence and interdiction operations. Recently, both teams were able to demonstrate this solution in an airport application, illustrating how the system was able to detect both land-based targets at 3km+ and small airborne targets at 5km+. The IR Revolution™ 360 is unique as it only requires one system full surveillance.
“The criminals operating at our borders today are using every means possible to successfully cross onto US soil, sometimes in very remote and difficult to navigate areas. With limited resources, it is a difficult challenge to conduct surveillance in some of these wide open spaces, 24/7. The traffickers have learned to use the cover of darkness and weather to their advantage and transport their people and illegal cargo in swift fashion via boat and vehicles”, says HGH Infrared Systems’ North American Sales Manager, Josh Howlett.
The IR Revolution™ 360 will minimize the manpower needed to watch these vast areas as well as increase the ability to detect both human and vehicle movement at all times of the night. With the knowledge and experience of Osen-Hunter Group, the solution should significantly increase the successful protection of the some of the hardest to manage areas, enabling law enforcement to stop crossings as they happen and protect more personnel from unseen threats.
