HOOD RIVER, Ore., 9 Nov. 2015. Sierra-Olympic Technologies Inc. in Hood River, Ore., is introducing the Aeron Searcher visible-light and thermal-imaging video system for marine installations, seaports, airports, or other venues with harsh environments or severe weather conditions.

The Aeron Searcher electro-optical and infrared camera, from Silent Sentinel Ltd. in Hertford, England, has QVGA (320 x 240) or VGA (640 x 480) options with simultaneous video and thermal outputs.

The continuous-zoom in visible-light and thermal modes provides human-detection capabilities to 3.4 kilometers. Sierra-Olympic's camera integrates the DRS uncooled, 17-micron vanadium oxide (VOx) thermal imaging sensor into a rugged housing.

The camera offers proprietary image contrast enhancement (ICE), a 3x motorized continuous thermal zoom, and pan/tilt capabilities. It can be mounted upright or inverted and the yoke can be offset to eliminate tilt blind spots through a 360-degree rotation.

The sealed pan/tilt assembly is manufactured and tested to IP67 environmental standards, and has an optional 316L stainless-steel housing.
