Long range PTZ thermal imaging flir cameras overview 

A new tool for seeing in total darkness, and in extreme weather conditions, is thermal imaging. Thermal imaging is the use of a thermal imaging camera to “see” thermal energy emitted from an object. Thermal imaging cameras produce images of invisible infrared or “heat” radiation. Based on temperature differences between objects, thermal imaging produces a crisp image on which the smallest of details can be seen. They work both during daytime and nighttime.

Most FLIR IR infrared Systems thermal imaging cameras contain an uncooled Vanadium Oxide detector. Not only does this produce excellent quality thermal images, since it is not containing any moving parts, it needs virtually no maintenance. Thermal imaging technology requires no additional lighting or illumination and has no regular maintenance costs.

Overview of long range SD and HD (high definition) LWIR and MWIR thermal imaging IR FLIR PTZ pan tilt cameras

Because everything generates heat, thermal imaging cameras can see as well at night as they can during the day. Cameras dependent on visible light are useless at night or in poor visibility without supplementary illumination from lamps, LEDs or lasers.
See clearly also in broad daylight and in total darkness night vision
SPI’s long range IR FLIR PTZ pan tilt thermal imaging cameras will not only protect borders and assets against intruders during the darkest of nights. The cameras are also perfectly suited for daytime surveillance. The long range infrared cooled and uncooled FLIR thermal imaging cameras will detect objects that remain invisible to the naked eye. For example, people hiding in the shadows or in the bushes will be detected. The cameras are also not blinded by glare from the sun.
Force Protection, Border Security and Surveillance The Ultra extreme NFOV long range FLIR thermal imaging night vision PTZ surveillance systems cover more territory and enable detection and classification better than any other sensor suite available. Networkable video and control make the long range FLIR thermal imaging systems the perfect border security imaging solution. The systems can be connected to a radar in a so called “slew to cue” configuration. If the radar detects an object, the camera turns in the correct direction so that you get a visual image from that blip on your radar screen.
Coastal Surveillance Some countries are bordered by thousands of kilometers of coastline. The long range ptz pan tilt zoom FLIR thermal imaging systems are the perfect tools to monitor what is happening along the coastline. They can be used to intercept illegal immigrants or to detect other threats coming from the sea. They are perfect for Vessel Traffic Monitoring and can work together with Automatic Identification Systems (AIS) and radars.

Perimeter Security Airports, air force bases, hydroelectric power plants, refineries, oil and gas pipelines and any other large infrastructure objects have perimeters that can be kilometers long. The ultra extreme FLIR thermal imaging systems provide the ultimate security solution. Detection ranges can exceed 50 kilometers KM
Quick and accurate Pan & Tilt unit The ultra compact, ultra precision IP68+ Pan & Tilt unit is designed for heavy duty service in extremely demanding environments, from hot desert to arctic conditions. This positioning unit includes slip-ring connections for the different signals (video, power and data), which allow for infinite horizontal rotation, and provide DC servo drives for the rotary movement in both axes. High precision gears provide fast accurate movement, free from backlash and extremely low hysteresis, through a continuous 360° rotation. The performance contributes to find targets faster, as well as to get a good and stable display of the sensors’ pictures even in very narrow fields of view. Incremental encoders allow for accurate geo-referencing of targets with precise read-out of the vertical and horizontal angles. Our PTZ pan tilt gimbals are the longest lasting most reliable positioning gimbals available. Enhanced electronic and active gyro stabilization ensures jitter free imagery at extreme long ranges and while operating the system on the move on mobile/windy harsh mast/pole/tripod hydraulic and retractable platforms.
Laser Range Finder LRF, SPI’s ultra extreme long range day/night vision MWIR midwave cooled and long-wave LWIR uncooled systems can be equipped with long range eye safe Laser Range Finder. Combined with the GPS system and the electromagnetic compass, it will allow you to exactly determine where a suspected object is located and how far it is away even at extreme standoff long ranges.
Easy to install learn and operate, Our long range thermal IR infrared imaging PTZ pan tilt gimbal systems are designed to be easily installed and operated from remote or local C2.

Long range thermal imaging flir PTZ cameras

  • With Long range PTZ or pan / tilt / zoom thermal imaging becoming relatively cheaper and an integral part of Short, medium, long and extreme ultra long range Surveillance, security, observation systems, a whole range of uses becomes both possible and economically viable. long range Thermal flir PTZ cameras can be an excellent complement in many situations where conventional cameras diminish their performance as low light levels are present. They are, of course, unparalleled in a situation of twilight, thermal cross-over, near darkness and total darkness. They can also be an option in areas that are very difficult to illuminate effectively, for example a sea front, a harbor, or any other vast expanse of open water thus making SPI’s long range PTZ thermal infrared imaging Ir cameras paramount for use in marine, boat, vessel and ship applications. Similarly, artificial light not only runs the risk of revealing where the cameras are placed, enabling parties to avoid or vandalize them, but can also create projected shadows in which an intruder can avoid detection. Furthermore, spotlights can blind as well as illuminate. So cameras that do not rely on light can be the preferred solution in many different traffic situations, whether it is in railway tunnels, on air strips, runways, or on regular streets. Long Range Thermal flir PTZ cameras, on the other hand, cannot be blinded by bright lights or laser beams.SPI Corp’s long range multi sensor Eoir flir thermal imaging camera systems offer substantial long distance detection ranges allowing the operator to be positioned at very far distant standoff locations offering ample time to react, to threats or targets of interest. Long range imaging systems provide a benefit to the user when coupled with an array of sensors and geo locating modules especially in specialty military, security and surveillance applications. The farther you are, the more time you have to react and not be seen.What the science behind a long range thermal imaging FLIR IR night vision PTZ pan tilt gimbal turret camera(a) Housing – Usually composed of an aluminum bell shaped cover, The housing can be of all shapes and sizes from plastic to military grade hardened coated all weather NBC Nuclear Biological Chemical compliant

  • Long Range Visible HD CCTV cameras can compliment the Thermal cameras and assist in daytime and low light DRI (Detection, Recognition and Identification)Long range Critical infrastructure applications require not only continuous video surveillance and monitoring, but also a solution that yields highly reliable intrusion detection, with fewer false alarms. This need makes advanced video analytics a must for any adequate long range thermal/cctv surveillance system.Advanced analytics will provide multiple automated alarm notification options, including email, edge image storage, digital outputs or video management software (VMS) alarms. Incorporating high quality, unique and adaptive analytics can virtually eliminate false alarms, allowing security personnel to respond more efficiently and effectively, while also lowering overall cost for the end user.While traditional long range surveillance & security technologies such as radar, thermal flir imaging and visible cameras, or video analytics work well on their own, utilizing all of these options together provide an advanced perimeter detection system. For example, ground surveillance radar can detect possible threats beyond the fence line as they approach and send a signal to pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras, triggering them to slew to a specific location. From there, embedded analytics and visible cameras can further identify objects, notify authorized staff, and collect additional evidence through facial recognition or high-quality photos.Once a long range intrusion attempt is discovered, it is important to act fast. Organizing a response system that can initiate actions based on GPS location data, such as the slewing of FLIR PTZ cameras, automated intruder tracking or activated lighting sensors, greatly increases staff’s situational awareness while easing their workload. For instance, thermal imagers deployed in conjunction with video analytics can be used to generate an initial alarm event, which can then trigger a sequence of other security equipment and notifications for personnel to eventually respond to. Having all of this in place essentially lays the entire situation out in a way that allows responders to accurately understand and evaluate a scene.After the designated auto-response mechanisms have activated and done their job, it is time for responders to acknowledge and assess the situation. From here, authorized personnel can take the next appropriate step toward defending against and delaying the threat. Deterring suspicious activity can be achieved through real-time two-way audio, a simple but powerful tool. Often, control room operators can diffuse a situation by speaking over an intercom, telling the trespasser that they are being watched and that the authorities have been notified.The primary purpose of the delay facet of the overall perimeter protection strategy is to stall an attempted intrusion long enough for responders to act. Access control systems play a key role in realizing this objective. When a security officer sees a non-compliant, suspicious individual on the camera feed, the officer can lock all possible exits to trap them in one area all through the VMS.

Long Range PTZ FLIR thermal imaging Infrared camera systems are positionable FLIR (thermal imaging infrared cameras) that come integrated in a housing called a payload, the steerable PTZ FLIR system allows the user to move the camera to any desired position for target tracking locating and surveilling. Most all dual sensor and multi sensor PTZ FLIR systems come with a thermal imaging camera with either electronic digital telephoto zoom and or optical continuous zoom telephoto functions. To compliment the PTZ FLIR, a daytime long range (generally 500x zoom) CCTV cmos camera is incorporated with the system to allow for detailed daytime EO (Electro Optical) imaging. Additional sensors can be integrated into the complete PTZ flir camera payload system such as SWIR, X27 Color low light cmos BSI high ISO 4k HD night vision, NIR low light sensors (X26), LRF Laser Range Finder, DMC Digital Magnetic Compass, Geo location, GPS, as well as radars for slue to cue positioning.

SLUE to CUE Radar long range Thermal Imaging PTZ FLIR camera assistance is compete camera sensor suite coupled with a radar. The Radar continuously scans the entire scene and when it picks up any activity of interest, it performs a slue to cue radar function and moves the camera to the target area and now starts tracking that object of interest, The PTZ FLIR camera interacts together with the SLUE to CUE radar and will alert the user of the action initialed while tracking that object in real time. Systems are mil-std810 and are ideal for ISR, c4isr, istar, star, Force Protection, Perimeter Direction, mss, mobile surveillance systems, Emergency Vehicle Situational Awareness, UGV Navigational Aid, border/coastal/frontier long range security and surveillance, Port & Ship Safety and Security, long range Remote Surveillance, long range mast or fixed pan tilt ptz scope trucks, Municipal and Utility Surveillance, ugv and autonomous vehicle navigation multi spectral/sensor system suite, and a host of unique custom long range imaging applications.

Thermal Infrared FLIR Imaging DRI (Detection, Recognition, Identification)

Detection, (D) Recognition, (R) & Identification (I) (DRI)  (Johnston criteria) , is the universal standard for rating thermal IR FLIR cameras and is a commonly used keyword.

Detection
Detection means that you will be able to see the target, it means that the target is visible on the image monitor, and that there is a good chance that the target is actually something of suspicion that may need further investigation or consideration.

Recognition
Recognition means that you are able to recognize an object’s class (human vs car, human vs animal, truck vs tank, etc).

Identification
Identification of an object means that you are able to differentiate between
objects. For example, being able to identify the exact type of vehicle not just
its shape.
