Thermal imaging cameras are widely used for Homeland Security. Thanks to their ability to detect human-sized targets several kilometers away, they are extremely suited for border surveillance and protection. Some FLIR Systems thermal imaging cameras can detect human-sized targets at a distance of practically 20 kilometers away.
Protecting a country's borders is vital to its Homeland Security. It is, however, very challenging to detect potential intruders or smugglers in total darkness or in diverse weather conditions. Thermal imaging cameras can help border control professionals to meet the demands they face at night and in other low-light situations. Thermal imaging cameras can be integrated in a border security project with radars and other sensors in a so called "slew-to-cue" mode.
But not only land borders need to be protected. Thernal imaging cameras are the perfect tools for coastal surveillance as well. Small vessels can be detected at extremely long ranges.
FLIR Systems has a broad experience with Homeland Security projects and markets a wide variety of thermal imaging cameras for this application. Multi-Sensor Systems are also available.
In order to help system integrators that want to include FLIR thermal imaging cameras and third party sensors in a security network we have founded FLIR Networked Systems.
