HGH Infrared Systems to produce IR cameras for use in Afghanistan

IR Revolution 360BOSTON, Mass. 15 May 2012. HGH Infrared Systems, a designer of optical and infrared systems based in Cambridge, Mass., will produce 25 IR Revolution 360 cameras in the next year as part of the Persistent Ground Surveillance System (PGSS) program. This order is part of a $5.8 million contract from the U.S. Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division-Lakehurst, NJ. This comes after 20 cameras were acquired to insure Forward Operation Base protection on 80 foot Wide-Area-Surveillance towers deployed in Afghanistan.

The HGH IR Revolution 360 infrared camera system uses thermal imaging to monitor activities in a 360 degree field of view. The IR sensor operates in the 8 to 10 micrometer spectral range, and automatically detects and tracks targets in range.

The IR Revolution 360 features a cooled thermal imaging sensor that rotates continuously at 1 revolution/sec for 360 degree coverage of an area. The camera provides 12 Megapixel panoramic images in darkness and adverse weather conditions. This technology operates as an optical radar coupled with analytics.

The data feed provided by the IR Revolution 360 is used by warfighters to pinpoint targets in the and gather forensics intelligence on insurgents or terrorists operating on the ground.

More than 50 IR Revolution 360 cameras have been deployed worldwide to date.
