About HGH Infrared

HGH provides a unique passive panoramic surveillance solution with automatic intrusion detection and tracking capabilities for an unlimited number of threats. This wide area surveillance system based on SPYNEL Panoramic thermal sensor provides outstanding image quality with very high spatial resolution, up to 120 Mpixels, at a high rate (up to 2 Hz). Land, air and sea targets are detected and tracked immediately through all types of inclement weather.

Equipped with CYCLOPE advanced detection & tracking software, SPYNEL sensors provide unprecedented real-time security against conventional and asymmetrical threats, at any time from any direction, including hardly detectable targets such as: crawling men, RHIBs, low altitude air targets, UAVs and stealth aircrafts.

SPYNEL and CYCLOPE tandem is the ultimate solution for wide area surveillance, continuous perimeter security, and critical infrastructure protection for FOBs, air and navy bases, ship auto-protection, oil & gas infrastructures, airports, ports, borders and coasts, industrial sites...

Technical Data

Technology and Design
SPYNEL wide area surveillance systems are recognized as a major innovation in security perimeter monitoring. SPYNEL sensors feature MWIR or LWIR focal plane array, exhibiting high performance, even in total darkness.

Rotating continuously at up to 2 revolutions/sec for total 360° azimuth coverage, it captures real time images with an impressive resolution of up to 120 Mpix according to the models.

As it produces high-resolution images, any type of targets, of any size, will be automatically detected and recognized, making it far more sensitive and convenient than radar.

Monitoring 360 degrees in real time, it can catch multiple intrusions coming from multiple directions, unlike PTZ cameras, blind outside their limited field-of-view.

The CYCLOPE is an advanced image processing software analyzing 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 aircraft. CYCLOPE’s latest version takes advantage of 20 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).

The Spynel-S® is a panoramic, long-range, wide area surveillance system designed to detect, classify and track automatically any type of threats, night and day. Continuously rotating at up to 2 revolution/sec, Spynel-S® provides powerful situational awareness through a 360-degree visualization of the surroundings. As a fully passive thermal sensor, it is invisible to intruders, not vulnerable to camouflage nor jamming, contrary to radar technologies. With a large MWIR focal plane array, Spynel-S exhibits high performance, capturing 30Mpix video stream.
