ASIS 2012: HGH Systems offers unique 360-degree surveillance capability

IR Revolution 360
from HGH Systems

HGH Infrared Systems, of Cambridge, MA, was pleased to tell attendees at the recent ASIS show in Philadelphia that its 360-degree IR Revolution 360 system has been incorporated into the mobile surveillance solution being offered by SRI International, of Menlo Park, CA.

The overall system provides to military forces (and perhaps one day to civilian security personnel as well) real-time video processing for visual situational awareness on-the-move.

In addition to HGH’s system, which offers a “high-resolution panoramic image and motion alerts,” according to SRI, the proposed 4-wheel vehicle offers:

  • TerraSight visualization software that puts sensor control and automated alerts into one integrated 3D display;
  • A verifIR surveillance camera system that melds visible and infrared video in real time to reveal hidden threats, while the subject, the camera – or both – are in motion;
  • A DL Micro digital data link and video processor which can deliver clear and usable video from unmanned air and ground vehicles.

Vanessa Couturier, general manager of HGH, told GSN at the ASIS show that her 360-degree surveillance component can “detect and track a man at up to three kilometers in total darkness.”

She noted that her 360-degree system can help personnel riding in a vehicle to maintain their bearings at all times. “What is hard in a vehicle is orientation,” she told GSN. HGH’s system enables crew members to feel as though they are surveying the surrounding area with their own eyes. “They want an open virtual hatch,” she added.

While the SRI vehicle has been developed for military warfighting applications, explained Couturier, it can also be used in border security applications, where the need for 360-degree, on-the-move situational awareness is never-ending.
