24-hour, 7-day surveillance of public areas can be
daunting. However, today’s new technologies enable
new levels of performance for these situations. Extreme
low light CCD cameras are capable of imaging into almost
total darkness. Near-infrared illuminators supplement
other visible lighting to enhance image performance
while remaining covert. Thermal imaging cameras readily
detect objects otherwise unnoticed.
An affordable infrared camera engine for a variety of thermal imaging applications. Because of the use of an 80x80 microbolometer array, the low cost ATOM 80 is ideal for a range of applications that don’t require the higher resolution of traditional thermal imaging cores. The Atom 80 attaches to any PC via its USB port.
800 Low Light CCTV
high sensitivity video camera that can be used
for 24-hour surveillance. An EMCCD detector gives
outstanding performance from bright sunlight
to overcast starlight and below. Extended integration
allows imaging at even lower levels with reduced
frame rates. Flexible and easy to use, the camera
offers bright, crisp images in full daylight
while enabling the user to attain optimal performance
at the very lowest light levels. Outstanding
target recognition and identification capability.
Series of Infrared Cameras
on the ATOM series of microbolometer products,
these infrared cameras are ideal for a variety
of security and surveillance applications. Because
of their small size, they are easily integrated
into different system platforms including unmanned
and airborne vehicles. Available in 320 x 240,
640 x 480 or 1024 x 768 array formats.
for large areas (up to 15 acres) and long-range
covert lighting applications. Incorporates
a high power laser diode and patented internal
optical assembly, and delivers the highest
near infrared light output available, while
achieving a Class 1 eye safety rating (IEC-60825-1).
A range of fixed beam widths are available
to meet specific applications. Laser diode-based
illuminators deliver exceptional low life
cycle costs, even illumination. ALS is
