Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) November 20, 2012
In late October, HGH Infrared Systems had the pleasure of participating in an exercise with Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ. Stevens Institute is well known for its research and education experience and success with several defense and security technology projects. It was the goal of each organization to develop an understanding of each others capabilities and future goals.
HGH Infrared Systems was excited to demonstrate the IR Revolution 360 for the Stevens team and the setting was perfect. Overlooking the Hudson River and the west side of Manhattan, the panoramic imaging system was able to capture the entire view in real time. Along with the amazing scenery, the maritime traffic, human and vehicle operations on the opposite shore and flow of airplanes into JFK, the system offered an applicable situation to show the IR Revolution 360’s effective detection of port security “threats”.
Wide area surveillance is an ongoing challenge for transportation related and critical site security. The Department of Homeland Security looks for efficient ways to secure their operations and often reaches out to partners like Stevens Institute to develop solutions using innovative technologies. Stevens Institute has been very successful and continues to work on ways to detect, identify, and track targets that may operate in view or covertly before they can pose a threat. It is the hope of HGH Infrared Systems and Stevens Institute to combine efforts to collaborate within these areas.
