HGH Infrared Systems Announces Debut of World's Highest Definition IRST
Press release date: May 2, 2014
Cambridge, MA — HGH Infrared Systems, a global provider of 360 degree thermal imaging systems, is proud to announce the debut of the SPYNEL-X, the world’s highest definition IRST. The SPYNEL-X captures in real time, full panoramic images with an unequaled resolution of up to 120 Mpix.
SPYNEL-X is a unique passive wide-area surveillance system with automatic intrusion detection and tracking capabilities for an unlimited number of targets on land, air, and sea through all types of inclement weather. The SPYNEL-X provides powerful situational awareness with, by far, the longest detection range in its category and features the latest state-of-the-art HD MWIR focal plane array.
A single SPYNEL-X sensor can perform 24/7 early human intrusion alerts over a 16km-diameter area and can be quickly deployed and configured. Thanks to its 120 Mpix panoramic visualization, any threat will be identified at any time from any direction, including hardly detectable targets such as: crawling men, RHIBs, low altitude air targets, UAVs and stealth aircrafts. HGH’s SPYNEL-X replaces up to 90 HD MWIR cameras in one single sensor head. As a completely passive system, the SPYNEL-X is invisible to intruders and cannot be tricked by camouflage or jamming. It is the ultimate solution for wide area surveillance, continuous perimeter security, and critical infrastructure protection for FOBs, air and navy bases, ship auto-protection, oil & gas infrastructures, airports, ports, borders and coasts.
The SPYNEL-X is the newest addition to HGH Infrared System’s SPYNEL family of panoramic, 360 degree thermal imaging solutions that have been deployed and proven since early 2007.
“SPYNEL-X is the culmination of ten years of research in panoramic infrared surveillance systems” said Thierry Campos, CEO of HGH Infrared Systems. “With the latest innovations in thermal sensing, integrated into a robust, field-proven mechanical design and advanced processing software, SPYNEL-X brings unprecedented real-time security against conventional and asymmetrical threats”.
