Here is Thermal Radar: a rival to conventional thermal cameras
Despite the arrival and popularity of ultrahigh definition low-light cameras, thermal imaging systems continue to remain an integral part of security solutions, especially in sites like critical infrastructure. However, the cost of installing several thermal cameras can be a deterring factor for many end users. This is where the company, Thermal Imaging Radar, sees a potential market. Its product, Thermal Radar, offers a direct competition to conventional thermal cameras.
 
“Threats to the security of assets and critical infrastructure are increasing,” said Brady Flamm, VP of Business Development at Thermal Imaging Radar. “Thermal Radar provides a cost-effective solution, using one thermal sensor to do the work of up to 16 thermal cameras – this has led to strong global demand from a variety of vertical markets including critical infrastructure, utilities, prisons, airports, agriculture, among many others.”

Simply put, Thermal Radar is a 360 degree wide area intrusion detection system, providing unparalleled situation awareness and actionable intelligence. It provides comprehensive and cost effective perimeter security through analytics-based thermal intrusion detection and geospatial alarm generation.

“Thermal Radar uses a rotating thermal sensor to provide continuous thermal coverage – unlike with a Thermal PTZ where you are hoping it’s looking in the right place at the right time,” Flamm continued. “With its 360 degree coverage, Thermal Radar can provide inside out coverage, monitoring the entire perimeter from the inside – without the need to trench and install cameras on all corners. The award-winning Hydra combines Thermal Radar detection with an IR illuminated PTZ.  When Thermal Radar makes a detection, the PTZ is automatically pointed on target providing visual confirmation.”

Thermal Radar’s edge based analytics provide smart detection that can be monitored with the included software, or can be viewed and recorded in a VMS.  The user can identify which areas to monitor and which areas to ignore.  The user defines the detection criteria for each area of interest – determining whether humans, vehicles, or both are being detected, and what confidence level much be reached before an alert is generated.

Asked how security systems integrators can benefit from the product, Flamm pointed out that the company relies on experienced integrators to sell, install and support the products across the globe.

“Some integrators focus on Thermal Radar as their core product, allowing them to capitalize on a hot new product that creates strong demand and growth for their business, while other integrators view it as an important option that fills a void among their solutions,” Flamm said.
