Integrated Full Motion 360 Video Surveillance System
Early target detection is essential for defence operators. Therefore we integrated virtual reality technology which is often regarded as a natural extension to 3D computer graphics to expand the Detection / Recognition / Identification (D/R/I) range of an EO/IR system.
Although the longest range is achieved with a narrow FOV EO/IR system, it presupposes the direction the target is approaching. This direction is not always known on the battlefield. If the system is pointing in the wrong direction, there is actually a 0% probability of detection. If a target approach is assumed equal from any side, then the system needs to factor in a probability based on the ratio of 360°/FOV.
Our advanced surveillance system with staring sensors overcomes this issue with instantaneous coverage of all 360° view range. It employs both a staring 360° imaging system and a directable NFOV system Once a target is detected it can then cue the NFOV system to interrogate the potential target further.
1. 360 Camera Array - provides the video high-definition multiple video feed. 2. Long Range Camera - narrow FOV video camera with pan / tilt / extended zoom. 3. Video Server - integrated with the camera video feeds. Provides processing of the separate video feeds into a panoramic real-time video and detection of moving objects with motion detection algorithms. 4. Review Station - PC application with interface options to navigate the video and control camera operation. 5. Monitor for Long Range Camera - separate monitor with tilt-zoom options for the long range camera and a dedicated video feed. 6. VR Headset - an additional interactive controller reacting to the position of the observer reflecting the external view from the 360 Camera Array
