CYCLOPE is the automatic intrusion detection and tracking software analysing the 360-degree high resolution images captured by the SPYNEL sensors.

Unlimited number of intrusions detected over 360°

CYCLOPE is an advanced image processing software analysing panoramic images captured by the SPYNEL Wide Area Surveillance sensors in real-time. CYCLOPE automatically detects and tracks an unlimited number of ground/air/maritime targets simultaneously, including hardly detectable threats, such as crawling men, RHIBs, low altitude air targets, UAVs and stealth aircrafts. CYCLOPE’s latest version takes advantage of 15 years of experience in data processing applied to critical infrastructure protection and InfraRed Search & Track applications, with the development of unique detecting and tracking algorithms with ultra-low FAR (False Alarm Rate).

Powerful, flexible and easy to use

Running on standard laptops or servers, CYCLOPE provides unsurpassed real-time 360-degree surveillance with unparalleled ease-of-use. The Graphical User Interface is fully customizable: preset or user-defined layouts of an unlimited number of zoom windows, panoramic, annular or radar views can be displayed on multiple screens. Cyclope features an automatic detection & tracking mode for fully autonomous surveillance. In addition, Cyclope includes an integrated sensor calibration assistant and hardware diagnostic utilities to aid in system installation and preventative maintenance.
