Long Range Thermal Camera Options

NIR Camera and Illuminator

A NIR camera and matched illuminator can work to identify in greater detail objects where the temperature is similar. They are not normally used instead of a thermal camera but are added to an EO/IR setup to offer greater all-round capability. It can add about $20,000 to the price for a top of the range 5km unit. Note the 5km range NIR setup van only be added to the highest specification optical lenses, A optical lens of a lower factor can use NIR/illuminator, but its range may be less.

PTZ

All long-range cameras are ideally controlled using cameras require a PTZ input. For larger cameras (large lens and addons) the cost of the PTZ will cost more.

Gyro Stabilized

As the distance at which you need to detect and object the FOV becomes smaller and smaller so the effect of vibrations or movement can have a detrimental effect on the image. For any camera on a moving vehicle or one liable to vibration a Gyro is recommended to maintain a stable image. As the distance at which you require to detect an object increases then even mounting the camera on a tower or location susceptible to vibrations from passing vehicles or wind may mean that you need a gyro.

Laser Distance Range Finder.

Options to determine exact ranges can be added.

Spotlight

Options to add a high intensity spotlight.

Remote Connectivity

An IP system that allows you to instantly and remotely connect and control it through the internet in real-time from anywhere in the world using Remote Software on your laptop, iPhone, or Android device. For remote or mobile applications Internet bandwidth is often limited, so our DVRs, NVRs and IP cameras can record at one resolution and stream at another.

Radar

A military specification portable radar system that links to your camera system to provide immediate threat detection and tracking. Scans 120° horizontally and 40° vertically. Several units can be linked together to provide a full 360° scan where required.

The radar automatically detects and slews camera to the location of the detected intruder or anomaly and then tracks it. It can even track fast moving small drones

Cost of integration depends on camera configuration, number of cameras etc.
