Long range thermal imaging cameras

Protecting a country’s borders is vital to its national security. No matter what hour of the day, the job is an enormous undertaking that becomes even more challenging under the cover of darkness.

Long Range PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) FLIR Infrared (IR) thermal imaging cameras provide another set of eyes for border control professionals and help them meet the demands they face at night and in other low-light situations. IR cameras detect the invisible infrared energy that all people and objects emit, and can “see” better than the naked eye at night and in bad weather. Whether searching for a fugitive or performing a special surveillance operation or routine patrol, darkness can be the greatest obstacle to border control professionals.Long Range PTZ FLIR Infrared thermal imaging cameras equip border control personnel with a whole new way of looking at the world. In simplest terms, thermal imagers operate like the human eye, but they are much more powerful. Energy from the environment comes through a lens and is registered on a detector. In the case of the infrared thermal imager, that energy is heat rather than light. By measuring very small relative temperature differences, invisible heat patterns are converted by the thermal imager into clear, visible images that the human eye can see through a viewfinder or TV monitor.All objects that are not at absolute zero temperature (0 degrees K or -459.67 degrees F) emit various types of electromagnetic radiation including infrared. The hotter an object gets, the more infrared radiation is emitted as a result of the thermal agitation of its molecules and atoms. The spectral distribution or wavelength of this energy depends on the nature of object (i.e. its relative effectiveness as a radiator, called emissivity) and upon its temperature. Blacker colors and duller surfaces usually have a higher emissivity and radiate infrared energy more effectively. Lighter colors and shinier surfaces radiate less effectively. Because the energy being sensed is heat and not light, Long Range thermal imagers can be used in both daytime and nighttime operations to find people, avoid obstacles or detect fire hot spots. Due to their own levels of infrared heat energy, people are easily seen 24 hours a day. Thermal imagers are usually very sensitive and can detect temperature variations as small as 0.1 degrees centigrade, even in less than ideal environmental conditions. Since they are unaffected by the amount of light in a scene, they won’t “bloom” or shut down in direct light.

Protecting a country’s frontier, border and coastline is vital to its Homeland Security and protection. It can be very challenging to detect potential intruders or smugglers in total darkness or in diverse weather conditions. Thermal imaging cameras can help border surveillance and security agents to meet the demands they face at night and in other low-light situations. PTZ Thermal imaging FLIR cameras that are specifically designed for border patrol, protection, security and surveillance can be integrated in a border security project with radars and other sensors in a so called “slew-to-cue”, detect, recognize and identify modes. Border Protection systems need to scan wide areas and then zoom in to extreme long ranges and identify targets in real time, assessing whether the intruders are illegal immigrants or refugees, smugglers, terrorists or enemy forces. Securing borders requires round-the-clock, all weather, long distance, all terrain integrated border surveillance systems.  SPI thermal imaging night vision IR camera systems are a complete border security solution that can be mounted and operated on Border Wall (southern and northern), Border Fence, masts, vehicles, tripods, buildings & virtually anywhere

Border patrol security, surveillance & Defense Thermal imaging pan tilt and fixed cameras are widely used for Homeland Security. Thanks to their ability to detect human-sized targets several kilometers away, they are extremely suited for border as they create an invisible fence. SPI Family of long range border security  thermal imaging cameras can detect human-sized targets at a distances exceeding 25 kilometers. Not only land borders need to be protected. Thermal imaging cameras are the perfect tools for coastal surveillance as well. Small vessels can be detected at extremely long ranges.

Controlling movement across national borders presents numerous political, economic and technical challenges. While primary responsibility for Long Range FLIR thermal imaging/CCTV EOIR PTZ border control rests with the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Canada (PSEPC), the respective defense departments have both key roles and significant materiel resources with which to support national security objectives. Given the size and in many cases remoteness of North American borders, technical solutions for long range PTZ FLIR thermal imaging/HD CCTV Sensors and pan tilt zoom extreme distance gimbals are necessary to act as multipliers to limited manpower within government enforcement agencies. The FLIR thermal imaging night vision and HD TV Visible PTZ GIMBALS AND TURRET products and technologies to tackle this effort reside not only in the private sector, but in capabilities either under development or already in use by the military. Civil agencies can benefit from leveraging these capabilities if hurdles such as cost, training, interoperability and security can be overcome.The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is implementing several initiatives toward securing the border, including the Secure Border Initiative (SBI) and the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI). SBI takes a systematic approach to border security by integrating and unifying border security systems, and developing and coordinating programs and policies to secure the border and efficiently enforce customs and immigration laws. The goal of WHTI is to strengthen border security and facilitate entry into the United States for U.S. citizens and legitimate foreign visitors.The potential for danger at borders all over the world is a very real concern as of late with regard to the high risk of terrorism and drug/human trafficking. In areas such as the Southern US border there has been a sharp increase in the number of armed drug and immigrant smugglers that require heightened levels of surveillance. Actionable intelligence needs to be provided to patrols in the field. But technologies providing information to the Border Patrol personnel need to address a very specific set of challenges: Long Range FLIR Thermal imaging Pan Tilt Zoom PTZ Surveillance equipment must be able to endure consistent exposure to harsh environments in remote locations. In addition, Detection and Tracking technologies have to face highly cluttered environments, at times filled with tumbleweeds and a wide range of animals, the geography itself can also present its own intricacies as line of sight is not always available as rugged hills can be part of the landscape’s fabric. Challenges specific to border surveillance include: Wide-area perimeter surveillance of at times rural and mountainous regions with wildlife clutter Survey and automatic detection of a wide range of different threats, including hardly detectable ones such as: UAVs, RHIBs, crawlers, swimmers etc. Equipment must be able to withstand harsh environments in remote locations Provide actionable, real-time intelligence to allow for immediate action by patrols in the field Long Range Flir drone PTZ Pan Tilt Zoom thermal imaging cameras and radar BORDER SURVEILLANCE/SECURITY PLATFORMS Securing national borders has become increasingly difficult. Global deployments call for a wide range of mission capabilities requiring flexible, high-performance multi-sensor systems, installed and operated from a variety of platforms. The most effective intrusion detection systems use multiple technologies to increase the probability of early detection with low false alarm rates under a range of atmospheric and lighting conditions. Closed circuit television (CCTV), infrared image cameras, surveillance UAVs, long range radar and laser radar (LIDAR) are often deployed in appropriate combinations. Short, medium, long and ultra long range FLIR Thermal imaging camera platforms integrate a wide variety of sensors – including such systems as tautwire perimeter detection, vibration intrusion detection, electromagnetic intrusion detection, electrostatic field disturbance, electro-optical observation, and even microwave field disturbance detectors. • Perimeter fences – deploy a variety of electronic surveillance technologies for intrusion detection and warning. These ground-based systems are primarily short-range, up to around 500 meters. • Observation towers extend Long Range FLIR Thermal Imager camera surveillance capabilities many tens of kilometers further from a border installation, and provide a platform for ground-based medium-range surveillance. • Mobile surface observation platforms, such as land vehicles as well as maritime vessels, patrol frontier regions and coastal waters, extending the reach of medium-range /  and long range Mobile Surveillance system sensors. • Thermal imaging EOIR FLIR Observation aerostats, stationary platforms, generally tethered PTZ FLIR THERMAL IMAGING balloons, allow for extended day/night vision EO-IR C5ISR observation over wider areas, extending the reach of long range Thermal FLIR Imaging surveillance sensors beyond what can be seen from an observation tower. Gyro Stabilizing the platform is recommended for extreme long ranges in order. To obtain high resolution images from the sensors.
