Night vision cameras linked to radar systems

Vumii : 25 June, 2008  (New Product)
Radar detection of unseen objects now enhanced with vision from Vumii night vision cameras linked into radar detection systems
Advancements in capability and reductions in pricing have dramatically increased the incorporation of marine and ground-based radar systems into perimeter, coastal, and border security applications. While these radar systems can effectively detect and locate potential threats, such solutions don't allow security operators to visually inspect objects that have triggered an alarm.

To address this shortcoming, Vumii has introduced a software module that enables communication between radar systems and its Discoverii day/night laser camera platform. Discoverii's long-range 24/7 recognition and identification capabilities, combined with detection radar systems, create a cost-effective, completely unmanned recognition and identification system for protecting marinas and seaports, industrial facility perimeters and international borders.

Compatible with products from leading radar suppliers including AIMS Fast-Scan radars by Detection Monitoring Technologies (DMT), Navtech's W800 Surveillance Radar, Honeywell's Radar Video Surveillance (RVS) system and the ICx STS series of radars, Vumii's new software enables seamless integration of Discoverii cameras with new or existing ground and marine-based radar systems. Such a solution detects threats dynamically, delivering exact location information relative to radar position or GPS coordinates that rapidly prepare the integrated Discoverii system to assess the detected threat.

Vumii's radar queuing and integration capabilities work well in protected, flat areas that are relatively free of heavy motion, such as remote borders at seaports, airports and critical infrastructure facilities. For even greater situational awareness, organizations can use Vumii's Sensorii platform for combining panoramic views with graphical radar data.

Integrators of comprehensive security solutions can now easily incorporate Discoverii with multiple radars rated for different ranges and for scenarios where automation is desired and precision is paramount.

"As a global leader focused on providing our customers with the most advanced radar security offerings, this latest capability from Vumii allows customers to rapidly deploy a robust detection and optical recognition combination that ultimately leads to cost effective, highly capable security solutions," said Eddie Hughes, CEO, DMT. "Vumii continues to understand the demanding security needs of government and commercial organizations and deliver the products that best tackle the diverse needs of these groups."

Vumii's innovative long-range, night surveillance cameras and software represent a revolution in night vision capabilities, offering unique natural contrast image and continuous zoom, high magnification optics in zero light, situational awareness in complete darkness, and full color in daytime conditions. This surveillance solution can dynamically adjust its field of view to compensate for a radar system's object location margins of error and manage rapidly moving targets.

"A radar solution integrating Vumii's latest version of Discoverii provides ideal detection, recognition, and identification capability," said Randall Foster, CEO, Vumii. "This combination enables the accurate location of potential threats through radar followed by a rapid, cost-effective visual assessment of natural contrast, high magnification images. Security professionals can not only quickly resolve false alarms, but also immediately deploy the most appropriate resources for a real security breach."

Discoverii, Vumii's flagship day/night vision solution, is a highly engineered yet easy to use long-range active laser surveillance camera system that delivers unsurpassed image clarity and magnification capabilities for day and night perimeter and border surveillance applications. Unlike thermal imaging and other passive optical solutions, Discoverii allows operators to clearly recognize targets at distances of up to 3,000 meters (about 10,000 feet) with covert illumination and natural contrast, high resolution imagery to achieve full threat assessment capability utilizing up to 60x continuous optical zoom and high precision pan-tilt positioning.
