The enemy is real. The night is dark. The job is critical. Get the right tool to get it done!

The future is here now and its more affordable than you think. In today’s uncertain times of world conflict, it has become more important than ever for the good guys to own the night. Traditional pan tilt zoom thermal imaging platforms have long suffered from two majors drawbacks, price and size. For years these multi sensor pan tilt imaging systems have been gigantic contraptions sometimes standing over two feet tall and weighing in at 100 pounds plus. The support gear required to safely mount and position these units made them extremely unpractical for all but the most extreme of applications. In addition, these behemoths had price tags that could range from a minimum of $35,000 to as high as $750,000 further limiting there use to exotic applications. unfortunately, this set of circumstances meant that a great many agencies that truly need this capability had no hope of ever procuring this expensive and cumbersome technology. The M5 thermal pan tilt zoom system represents a breakthrough in innovative design philosophy that now makes thermal pan tilt zoom systems smaller, lighter and much less expensive. By utilizing COTS components and leveraging existing technologies the M5 can deliver comparable performance at a small fraction of the cost and size of traditional pan tilt systems. A wide range of options and industry standard control protocols further extend the M5’s capabilities. The choice is clear for any professional involved in night time operations- the M5 is your tool of choice.

The M5 MRTI (Medium Range thermal imaging security camera) is designed to be an all around thermal PTZ solution. Ideally suited for the majority of applications the MRTI M5 can be used on buildings, towers, fence lines, fixed mount structures, vehicle operations and marine vessel applications. Whatever you need the M5 MRTI delivers.

M5 Medium Range Thermal Imaging Security Camera Details

High Resolution Thermal Imaging
The M5 MRTI Thermal PTZ multi-sensor unit contains an uncooled micro bolometer thermal camera engine with an FPA (Focal Plane Array) thermal resolution of 76,800 pixels at the imaging sensor. Many so called “low Cost” systems on the market contain wimpy 160×120 thermal pixel sensors. The M5 MRTI has 4 times the resolution of these systems yet in most cases costs the same amount. Everyone is looking to save money, but is resolution really the place to cut corners on a high performance imaging system? No way! For more demanding application the MRTI M5 can be fitted with High Definition thermal sensors featuring a huge 307,200 pixel thermal sensor array.

Long Range EOIR Zoom
Many systems on the market are have their focus primarily on day OR night applications. In these systems all the emphasis is placed on one technology and lip service is paid to the other. The M5 MRTI is a true 24/7 imaging solution. The advanced thermal technology is mated to an ultra crisp CCTV video component. The CCTV camera sub system has an incredible 36X optical and 12X digital zoom for a total video zoom of 432X! The M5 MRTI thermal imaging security camera is ideal for 24/7 operation in any weather. Thermal zoom and telephoto imaging can be customized for your application. The M5 thermal sensor can be coupled to a variety of precision engineered long range germanium optics and digital zoom configurations.

Continuous 360° Rotation
The M5 Medium Range Thermal Imager (MRTI) system is an all purpose tool for complete situational awareness. Many pan tilt systems cut corners by offering 360 or even 380 degree rotation. These inferior products do not utilize advanced slip ring technology so when you get to the end of its rotation you have to spin all the way back around to follow a target. Threats come from every direction and they usually move! The M5 MRTI has an advanced slip ring inside so that you can turn the system continuously in any direction. When a threat passes the 360 degree mark the M5 just keeps on turning so you can follow the target no matter where they go. Don’t let hard stops limit your capabilities. Get the M5 today.

Advanced Thermal Features
The next generation microbolometer focal plane array sensor in the M5 MRTI thermal imaging security camera system is the latest in uncooled thermal infrared imaging technology available. Not only does the system provide razor sharp thermal imagery but the onboard Digital Signal Processing provides you with the latest in features including:

  • Thermal digital zoom technology
  • Auto exposure hands free imaging

Programmable Auto Tours
The intelligent pan tilt positioning platform of the M5 MRTI can be user configured to satisfy any mission criteria. The user can preset up to 128 preset points and then instruct the MRTI to travel between those points while setting the speed and direction of movement. 6 preset paths can be set with up to 16 points per path. The auto scanning features of the M5 greatly reduce operator burden. As an example the system could be set to scan to the gate, zoom in, hold for 10 seconds, then automatically Pan/Tilt to the perimeter fence, zoom in and pause for 5 seconds and so on. To stop the scan all you have to do is grab the joystick for instant user control over ride. Simple, intelligent and powerful.

Integrated Wiper
The M5 has all the bells and whistles included as standard features. The CCTV camera can become obscured by rain, mud, snow or dirt and the integrated windshield wiper can be remotely activated on the M5 menu system to quickly and efficiently clean the lens. Many systems cut costs by doing away with the wiper. You wouldn’t buy a car without a windshield wiper would you? Of course not. Your imaging system should have the same level of glass protection. No matter what the conditions bring, the M5 will deliver performance.

Easy Installation
Designed to be easily installed using basic hand tools and electrical knowledge, the M5 MRTI is a joy for integrators and in house personnel. Utilizing a simple 4 bolt hole pattern the lightweight M5 MRTI can be mounted virtually anywhere. Integrated bushings protect the M5 from shock and vibration. Wiring is accomplished via the units single main system cable that houses the video feeds, serial control lines and DC power connections. The M5 can easily be installed in network video security systems, guard towers, wireless network configurations, buildings, land vehicles, marine vessels and almost any other location that you can think of.
