Cambridge MA (PRWEB) April 17, 2013
HGH Infrared Systems, a global provider of 360 degree thermal imaging systems, announces the debut of their new high resolution system for Wide Area Surveillance. The new camera, the Spynel-S, features a new look and a longer detection range, displaying panoramic thermal images with an impressive resolution up to 30 Mpix. Associated with Cyclope advanced motion detection software, it provides unprecedented real-time security against conventional and asymmetrical threats, in the whole surroundings, up to the horizon.
“Spynel-S is the latest innovation from our R&D department, to significantly enhance the detection range of 360-degree thermal cameras for situational awareness applications,” said Thierry Campos, CEO of HGH Infrared Systems. “It represents an exciting step beyond in passive panoramic surveillance."
The Spynel-S comes to the market at an opportune time as HGH has a high demand for long range passive automatic threat detection system, especially in the maritime market. With a large mid-wave infrared focal plane array, Spynel-S exhibits high performance, especially in warm and humid regions. Working night and day, with a visual image of the whole panorama, the Spynel-S detects and tracks unlimited movements over several kilometers in all types of weather. To fulfill passive surveillance requirements for air, land and maritime applications, 3 different Spinel-S variations are available, with different vertical fields-of-view (5°, 10° and 20°). It will give early intrusion alert of targets, such as crawling men, small wooden boats, RIBs, UAVs, stealth aircrafts. Any human trespassing within 100 square-km area around the sensor will be spotted and tracked on Cyclope display.
The award-winning IR Revolution™ 360 will be changing its name to the Spynel-C to join the rest of the Spynel family. The IR Revolution™ 360, also known as the Vigiscan outside of North America, will change its name immediately. With dozens of these cameras sold and deployed, HGH is looking forward to the Spynel’s continued success.
(HGH Infrared Systems will be officially announcing the product launch at the SPIE: Defense Security and Sensing show in Baltimore, MD April 30-May 2.)
