Panoramic thermal camera for real-time security

The 360° solution for threat detection and tracking, proven at sea and on land

The 360° thermal sensor Spynel-C® is a cutting-edge surveillance system providing with real-time panoramic images with automatic intrusion detection and tracking capabilities. You will benefit from a powerful situational awareness, with a 360° visualization of the surroundings. Spynel-C® is totally passive, which means intruders cannot see it, it is not vulnerable to camouflage or jamming. The infrared sensor operates 24/7, in good or bad weather.

React fast thanks to Spynel-C's early target discrimination:

Not only is SPYNEL-C® both compact and solid, it can also be deployed quickly to perform multiple events detection over very large areas. Be it in total darkness, in a fog, or when there is smoke, your Spynel® sensor will detect & recognize an unlimited number of tracks, providing high resolution images. The thermal sensor is able to track hardly detectable threats, like small, slow or tangential moving targets. Cost effective and reliable, your Infrared Camera SPYNEL-C® can be used as a standalone perimeter security solution or combined with systems already in place.

Benefits of SPYNEL-C:

  • Cost effective and reliable 
  • Full panoramic coverage with a single sensor
  • Very long range surveillance, up to the horizon
  • Day & night scrutinity, whatever the weather
  • Automatic and simultaneous tracking of multiple threats
  • Solid, compact and lightweight 
  • Fast deployment
  • Fully passive, undetectable

Main applications of the panoramic thermal camera:

  • Persistent wide area surveillance
  • Perimeter security, 24/7
  • Asymmetrical threats detection over 360°
  • Surveillance of airports, airfields
  • Protection of critical infrastructure
  • Surveillance of Forward Operating Bases
  • Border & coastal surveillance
  • Protection of ships
  • Fight against piracy, against smuggling
