Long-Range Panoramic Surveillance System

Infrared Panoramic Detection and Tracking System

Spynel-S® is a panoramic, long-range, wide area surveillance system designed to detect, classify and track automatically any type of threats, night and day.

Continuously rotating at up to 2 revolution/sec, Spynel-S® provides powerful situational awareness through a 360-degree visualization of the surroundings. As a fully passive thermal sensor, it is invisible to intruders, not vulnerable to camouflage nor jamming, contrary to radar technologies. With a large MWIR focal plane array, Spynel-S exhibits high performance, capturing 30Mpix video stream.

Long distance panoramic surveillance camera for perimeter security

Available in land and maritime models, Spynel-S® can withstand extreme weather and temperatures. It can be used as a reliable and cost-effective standalone perimeter security solution, securing an entire installation thanks to its multiple intrusions detection and tracking capabilities over 360°. This is not the case of PTZ cameras, which have a limited field-of-view, using a sector-based scanning.

Advanced intrusion detection software and simple integration

The Cyclope software provides a user-friendly interface displaying a real-time 360° strip and three views: annular, radar and zoom for comprehensive threat visualization within the secure area. Cyclope software also provides unlimited targets discrimination and tracking, as well as immediate threat location (azimuth, elevation, distance).

Cyclope also features GPS, AIS and radar data integration, automatic control of PTZ systems for target identification, forensic capabilities (timeline, sequence storage, playback), spatial and temporal bookmarks, display of multiple threats on situation map, image stabilization, and more.
