The Horizon Medium Wave Infra-Red (MWIR) thermal imaging camera employs the latest focal plane array technology to meet long-range surveillance and target identification for early warning of threats and detection of illegal activities to satisfy border control, coastal security Counter UAS and surveillance requirements. The camera is fitted with a high definition detector array and is qualified to operate in the most stringent land and maritime environments.
The system is able to detect vehicles at up to 50km and personnel at ranges of up to 30km. One camera can therefore monitor hundreds of square kilometers of terrain. The crisp imagery allows rapid identification and detailed investigation of suspicious movements and activity.
The latest generation of algorithms provide additional image enhancements for harsh environments, these include turbulence mitigation, Local Area Contrast enhancement (LACE), edge enhancement and image stabilization. Horizon provides a wider Field of View (FoV) for greater Situational Awareness, whilst delivering a narrower IFoV for longer range target identification and engagement.
Horizon cameras have been specifically designed with very long life cooling engines of 50,000 hours. This increases reliability and reduces through-life costs.
