At Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) 2017 in London, HGH Infrared Systems revealed Spynel V-LRF – a visible channel and laser rangefinder upgrade package for the company’s Spynel-S panoramic detection system, and the Spynel-X InfraRed Search and Track (IRST) system.
The Spynel-X and Spynel-S systems provide wide area surveillance and long-range target detection capabilities for land and maritime applications. The systems are equipped with cooled medium wave infrared (MWIR) detectors and work by rotating at a frequency of up to 2 Hz depending on the system variant. The rotation allows the sensor to capture a panoramic image of the scene for onboard processing using the company’s Cyclope automatic intrusion detection and tracking software for real time or forensic exploitation.
