HGH Infrared Systems of France has won the contract to secure the airport in Omaha (USA) with their unique and innovative solution, VIGISCAN.
Applied Infrared Sensing is the official distributor of VIGISCAN infrared thermal imaging panoramic surveillance system in Australia and New Zealand.
VIGISCAN is a thermal imaging surveillance system that enables detection, visualisation and tracking of any intrusions or suspicious movements within a radius of several kilometres.
This revolutionary thermal imaging technology offers several advantages to the user compared to traditional area surveillance solutions.
Infrared thermal imaging cameras provide high quality imaging during the day or night. Image analysis, based on a powerful algorithm dedicated to the panoramic view automatically detects a man-size target up to 3km.
VIGISCAN thermal imaging panoramic systems simultaneously detect and display a multitude of threats over a 360-degree range. Exceptional area coverage by a single unit considerably reduces installation and infrastructure costs, which generally represent a large part of the security systems budget.
For Omaha airport, only two VIGISCAN thermal imaging panoramic sensors were required to cover the whole area to be monitored.
VIGISCAN is a continuously rotating thermal imaging camera system that can be described as an optronic radar. Its operating principle and performance are revolutionising the security market for airport monitoring and other surveillance applications since a single device replaces a multitude of cameras and perimeter protection sensors.
The VIGISCAN surveillance system is extremely well suited for port security, anti-piracy, border/ coastal surveillance and sensitive industrial site protection.
