IGNY, France, 7 May 2013. HGH Infrared Systems, a global provider of 360-degree thermal imaging systems, has unveiled its Spynel-S high-resolution system for wide-area surveillance.

The Synel-S camera, sporting a new look and longer detection range, displays panoramic thermal images at resolutions up to 30 megapixels. Alongside Cyclope advanced motion detection software, the new imaging system delivers real-time security against conventional and asymmetrical threats throughout its surroundings.

“Spynel-S is the latest innovation from our R&D department, to significantly enhance the detection range of 360-degree thermal cameras for situational awareness applications,” explains Thierry Campos, CEO of HGH Infrared Systems. “It represents an exciting step beyond in passive panoramic surveillance.”

Working night and day, with a visual image of the whole panorama, the Spynel-S features a large mid-wave infrared focal plane array. It detects and tracks unlimited movements over several kilometers in all types of weather, including warm and humid regions.

To fulfill all passive surveillance requirements for air, land, and maritime applications, three Spinel-S variations are available, with different vertical fields-of-view (5, 10, and 20 degrees). It will give early intrusion alert of targets, such as crawling men, small wooden boats, RIBs, UAVs, stealth aircrafts. Any human trespassing within 100 square-kilometer area around the sensor will be spotted and tracked on Cyclope display.
