Long-Range cameras for demanding environments [Long-range Spectrel solution for border protection]

CST’s camera series of Long-Range ruggedized cameras named Spectrel are designed for demanding mid- and long-range surveillance applications, such as day and night coastal surveillance, camp perimeter protection, asset protection and safe-guarding sensitive infrastructure installations.

The camera system is an integrated unit comprising a ruggedized high-performance zoom lens, high-sensitivity CCD camera and control hardware for operating in the visible spectra. A special Extended Night Mode allows imaging under low-light conditions.

Spectrel will stay on target when zooming in on an object of interest – commonly referred to as bore-sight retention, where Spectrel has a bore-sight retention within 0,2 mrad (= 20 cm precision at 1 km distance). The Spectrel cameras also enable you to recognize a human at 8 km, with more features such as fog/haze penetration, “Autofocus-on-Demand” and graphical overlay. Additionally the cameras also endure temperatures ranging from -40°C to 70°C, and have a protective sealed housing to stand high moisture and extremely high shock and vibration to secure high reliability.
