The rise of new technologies urge naval forces to adapt their defence, detection and threat-tracking capabilities. To answer the growing needs in terms of embarked IRST systems, we developed an IRST solution based on the SPYNEL-X technology: a passive early warning system embarked on your ship for a 360° protection against asymmetrical threats.


Your Challenges:

Low air targets such as missiles, drone swarms, and other fast approaching threats RHIBS make it difficult for current surveillance sensors to ensure a full protection of the vessel. In order to provide with a full panoramic 3D defensive bubble, an adapted, gyrostabilized and passive IRST must be implemented to the vessel’s existing security system.

Our Solution:

A dual rotating sensor heads configuration operated with one single Combat Management System!

The SPYNEL-X IRST is a sea-proven and fully passive solution suited for self-protection of all surface vessels. It is able to automatically and simultaneously detect, track and classify air and surface threats, in any direction. SPYNEL IRST combines the high performance of two SPYNEL-X sensors with CYCLOPE Hypervisors data fusion technology:
