Forward Operating Base Surveillance
In theater, defense and security forces often operate outside of developed areas and within isolated, high risk conditions. On these bases 24/7 surveillance is not easily executed but is vital to mission success and personnel safety. Threats are unexpected and can come from all directions.
24/7 surveillance of wide areas
Need for quick, adaptive deployment
Harsh environmental conditions: extreme heat, cold, precipitation
Potential for false alarm due to cluttered environment
Limited access to resources and utilities
Operators with insufficient training
Integration with existing radar and long range PTZ cameras
Integration with C4ISR
Payload limitations on tower
Our IRST camera systems utilize advanced thermal imaging technology to monitor activities in a complete 360 degree field of view in real-time. The ultra-wide, panoramic IR sensors operate in the 3-5 or 8-12µm spectral range, and automatically detect and track targets using complex algorithms. Adding to the capability of a radar and a long range FLIR, our sensors provide high resolution, Multi Mega Pixel panoramic images in complete darkness and adverse weather conditions. These innovative technologies operate as optical radars coupled with powerful analytics. Data feed provided by the IRST sensor are used to allow personnel in theater to quickly and effectively pinpoint targets in the most demanding operational environments and gather forensics intelligence on insurgent or terrorist activity on the ground. Forensics capabilities allow operators to replay and analyze an incident after the fact to identify enemy CONOPS.
Integration with C4ISR Systems
The IRST sensor can easily be integrated with third party platforms and teamed up with other sensors when needed. Target and tracking info as well as live zoom feed imaging can be streamed into control software. PTZ slew-to-cue functionality can also be accessed directly from within the software with a click of the mouse.
Deployed and Proven in Afghanistan
The IRST cameras was awarded a 3 year contract with the U.S. Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division-Lakehurst, NJ for the Persistent Ground Surveillance System (PGSS) program. These cameras are deployed and ensure Forward Operation Base protection on 25m-high Wide-Area-Surveillance towers deployed in Afghanistan.
