Spynel-M – Infrared Radar for Wide Area Surveillance

High-end panoramic thermal surveillance system, cost-effective for security budget

With dimensions of less than 12×20 cm and weight of only 1.8 kg, the Spynel-M is a cost-effective, rugged, and compact solution for wide area surveillance, taking advantage of HGH’s fifteen years of expertise in major security projects. SPYNEL-M is a high-resolution panoramic thermal camera, acting as an infrared radar. Continuously capturing full 360-degree infrared images every second, it provides real-time security against conventional and asymmetrical threats including hardly detectable targets such as UAVs, RHIBs, or crawling men.

  • Compact and cost-effective infrared radar
  • Robust and transportable sensor for immediate 360-degree security
  • Human detection range: up to 700 m

Critical infrastructure protection with a single sensor

One single Spynel-M sensor is able to perform 24/7 early human intrusion alerts over a 1.5 km-diameter area and can replace up to 16 traditional cameras over 360 degrees. Easily transportable, it can be carried in a backpack and quickly deployed on a light mast or fixed atop a building for superior wide area surveillance. While requiring only 5 watts of power, Spynel-M can also be operated with solar or alternate power supply systems to allow for a remote operation. The system requires no additional light source; unlike radar, it is completely passive and cannot be jammed. The new sensor benefits from the functionalities and performance of HGH intuitive advanced intrusion detection software, Cyclope, which automatically tracks and detects an unlimited number of targets from any direction at any time of day or night and under any type of weather conditions.
