Our Wildlife is under siege, the world is dealing with an unprecedented spike in illegal wildlife trade, threatening to overturn decades of conservation gains. Run by dangerous international networks, wildlife and animal parts are trafficked much like illegal drugs and arms. Our unique technology has clear benefits over alternatives, making it a perfect tool for the protection of large reserves.
In many Wildlife Conservancies around the world, poaching is becoming a bigger and more dangerous threat; poachers are organised, committed and heavily armed... If actionable intelligence needs to be provided to patrols in the field, these technologies have to address a very specific set of challenges and surveillance equipment must be designed to endure exposure to harsh environments in remote locations.
What are the main challenges of Wildlife Surveillance ?
Wide-area perimeter surveillance of rural and mountainous regions surrounded by wildlife
Automatic detection & tracking of all targets simultaneously, even when groups split up
Ability to automatically differentiate between humans and animals
Wildlife surveillance systems must be able to bear harsh environments in remote locations
Actionable, real-time intelligence allowing immediate action by patrols in the field
Solution: Our 360° IRST sensors
Our 360° Infrared Search&Track systems have proven their effectiveness for border security applications. Our sensors use a 24/7 rotating head to produce 360° images and detect & track all intrusions in real time: Our cameras operate like “radars with eyes.", solving the deficiencies of light-based camera monitoring. On top of that, our mid or long wave infrared sensors allow to detect a human at up to 8km in total darkness and adverse weather (extreme heat, snow, cloud dusts, etc.).
Alarm functions & zones are highly flexible and can be set up to differentiate between human and animal targets. Wildlife assets and own forces can also be tracked continuously in order to coordinate operations. This results in complete situational awareness with a very low false alarm rate.
