Security & Surveillance White Papers & Case Studies

  1. Using Thermal Camera Cores For Reconnaissance Robots
    7/18/2016

    Reconnaissance robots are controlled remotely, which allows for access into normally inaccessible sites and reduces risks for users. The FENIX from PIAP is a light reconnaissance robot designed for detecting threats, and can observe, lift, and neutralize dangerous loads, and transport sabotage equipment.

  2. Solving 360° Perimeter Security
    6/10/2016

    With an increase in global conflicts and threats, perimeter security and the protection of critical infrastructures, borders, harbors, and other territories has become much more important. Xenics’ 360° surveillance system is an efficient and cost-friendly monitoring solution to keep properties safe, day and night.

  3. Semi-Transparent Mirrors For Visually Dynamic Hospitality Displays
    5/23/2016

    Hotel, restaurant, and retail owners are increasingly using aesthetically pleasing high-performance semi-transparent mirrors to create a visually dynamic display/mirror combination. These mirrors are constructed with a display unit hidden behind the glass that is not visible until powered on. 

  4. Thermal Security Cameras Protect The Home Turf
    8/25/2015

    As Brigham Young University finished over $1 million worth of renovation to their football field, questions arose as to how they would secure it at all hours of the day, especially after dark. During the process of finding which security technology to use, they temporarily installed a thermal security camera from FLIR Systems on a tripod in the stadium press box. This helped them resolve three trespasses within the first week alone. This case study discusses how Brigham Young University benefitted from installing FLIR’s thermal security cameras into their security systems.

  5. Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) Imaging For Hyperspectral And Surveillance Systems
    7/18/2014

    Imaging in the short wave infrared (SWIR) wavelength band (0.9um to 2.5um) has generated much attention in recent years with new applications and mission development. Advancements in SWIR sensor and infrared focal plane array (IRFPA) technologies have been the primary drivers to growing interest in areas such as conventional surveillance imaging and other hyperspectral imaging applications. This article touches on two key applications for SWIR detection.

  6. Visionary Developments In Military And Defence Surveillance
    7/3/2013

    Sight is the most advanced and dominant human sense, and it is estimated that 25% of the brain is dedicated to the processing of images. The brain even prefers to ‘visualise’ problems and see information pictorially, as vision is so central to the way in which the world is perceived. By Steve Parker, PhD, and Fan Wu, PhD, RFEL

  7. Airborne Infrared Hyperspectral Imager For Intelligence, Surveillance And Reconnaissance Applications
    10/19/2012

    Persistent surveillance and collection of airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance information is critical in today’s warfare against terrorism. High resolution imagery in visible and infrared bands provides valuable detection capabilities based on target shapes and temperatures. By Eldon Puckrin, Caroline S. Turcotte, Marc-André Gagnon, John Bastedo, Vincent Farley and Martin Chamberland

  8. Application Note: Using SWIR In Intelligence, Surveillance, And Reconnaissance (ISR) Military And Security Systems
    8/31/2010
    Responding to the Global War on Terrorism (GWOT) has become the focus of U.S. Defense policy, and with that, the need for greater intelligence collection has moved upward in priority.
