long range surveillance: EO IR land-based camera system

LAND-BASED SURVEILLANCE

for Long-Range Defense & Security Missions

CONTROP provides a range of powerful sensor solutions designed for land-based surveillance roles. This includes coastal surveillance, border surveillance, counter-UAS, force protection, and critical site protection. These security missions can be carried out by government agencies, military personnel, law enforcement and private companies – but no matter the end user, one of the main requirements is to be able to detect threats from longer distances, and during day/night and all-weather conditions.

CONTROP’s SPEED family provide market-leading sensing solutions for land-based surveillance missions – which can include extremely long-range multi-spectral video imagery. The SPEED family includes Extended Range, Long-Range and Medium-Range products, allowing customers to choose a product that meets their specific land surveillance requirements. In addition, CONTROP offers the TORNADO-ER, which provides 360-degree IR RADAR for large areas and acts as an optical radar that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to automatically classify targets.

All of our land surveillance products can be integrated with our dedicated command-and-control software.

  • Critical Site Protection

    CONTROP’s EO/IR systems can be used to protect sites including critical national infrastructure that is vital for countries to function and for people to live their daily lives. Malicious actors can target critical sites such as power stations (nuclear and conventional), water treatment plants or communications  networks, causing significant harm to a national population. The last several years have seen several examples of physical attacks by terrorist groups on critical sites including oil and gas installations and pipelines, utilizing a range of attack vectors including bombings and drone strikes. CONTROP’s high performance multi-spectral sensors can quickly detect malicious activity around critical sites and alert security forces to act. Security forces can utilize CONTROP’s long-range SPEED family of sensors to automatically detect suspicious vehicles or people using high-definition day cameras or cooled thermal cameras. Security forces can also use the TORNADO-ER in critical site protection, with the advanced IR scanning system able to rapidly detect and acquire land targets out to 12km.

  • Force Protection

    It is important to equip deployed forces with sensor solutions that can detect threats before they reach the perimeter of a base and attempt to enter. CONTROP’s land surveillance solutions provide deployed forces peace of mind that threats will be detected early and that swift and decisive action will be taken before lives are put in danger. CONTROP EO/IR systems such as the SPEED family and TORNADO can easily integrate into a wider security system around a military base – which can include active radars and acoustic sensors – and vastly improve detection and positive identification of threats. CONTROP’s superior sensor performance means that deployed forces can scan large areas in seconds, reducing the workload for operators and ensuring that threats are not missed during the day and at night. Embedded artificial intelligence (AI) means that CONTROP systems can automatically classify targets such as vehicles or personnel, enabling an appropriate response to be planned and actioned.

  • Counter UAS

    Drones, and unmanned aerial systems, can be a significant threat to security when used by malicious actors. As recent events has shown, they can be used for terrorism, drug smuggling, and other unlawful activities that affect public safety, such as illegal flights near airports. An effective counter-UAS system must be able to detect and track rogue UAVs from large distances – alerting security personnel on the ground before it is an imminent threat – and continue tracking the vehicle until an effective kinetic or non-kinetic countermeasure is used to neutralize it. The Speed-ER enables to investigate and track small drone targets at long distances to ensure that the detected target is a relevant target  before engaging it. CONTROP has significant experience in counter-UAS, and our sensors have been deployed around the world as a part of integrated C-UAS solutions, owing to their superior detection and tracking performance.  The SPEED-ER is an optimum solution for counter-UAV operations as it can detect and track drones from large distances and give security personnel advanced notice of potential threats.

  • Border Surveillance

    Border security is a major concern for most countries, and many governments employ various technologies at a border to ensure that threats cannot enter and cause harm to the population. Threats that can originate from the border include terrorist infiltration, smuggling/trafficking of drugs or people, illegal immigration, and much more. It is important to have surveillance assets that can monitor a border 24/7 and automatically classify activity that is suspicious. High-definition sensors, such as CONTROP’s SPEED family has been deployed worldwide in this role and supplements other systems that are in place to ensure border security. CONTROP has developed the SPEED-LR as an affordable solution for border security applications, which incorporates many of the features of the high-end SPEED-ER but at a lower price point. Another solution for border security includes the SPEED-MR, a modular solution that can integrate day and night sensors along with laser range finder. As well as mounting on static platforms such as masts or buildings

  • Coastal Surveillance

    Countries with large coastal areas and port facilities must contend with a number of security threats that can originate from the sea, including terrorism, piracy, smuggling/trafficking and illegal immigration. For these countries, it is vital to have a “virtual fence” that can detect and track targets in real time and be identified rapidly. This enables appropriate action to be taken before they become a risk to personnel and infrastructure in the coastal zone. Long-range sensor solutions are a key defense to these threats, allowing personnel to visually detect small craft or swimmers from longer ranges and confirm alarms from other sensors. CONTROP’s SPEED-ER combined with our TORNADO-ER wide-area surveillance sensor is a unique solution for coastal surveillance and protection. The TORNADO-ER will scan the waters up to the horizon and automatic detecting and tracking any moving target even swimmers. The SPEED-ER is used to investigate and identify the detected targets at a very high resolution all the way to the horizon. The SPEED-ER combines all the necessary sensors: extra narrow and a wide field-of-view daylight camera, along with a cooled medium-wave infrared (MWIR) camera and a short-wave IR (SWIR) sensor. The SWIR camera is highly effective in low-visibility conditions such as haze and mist, which is a common issue in coastal areas, and allows camera operators to  see details such as ship names. All products can seamlessly integrate into a security C2 architecture that includes radar, AIS and other systems.
