SOFIC 2015: FLIR Systems presents surveillance vehicle and handheld sensors

At this year’s SOFIC FLIR is presenting its FLIR LTV, a All-TerrainSelf-Contained Mobile Surveillance System based on a Polaris 4x4 ATV. Cerberus LTV is a lightweight all terrain reconnaissance and surveillance system that gives operators the ability to go almost anywhere and conduct fully self-contained surveillance missions using advanced radar, electro-optical and thermal imaging systems. Complex long range, world class sensors are seamlessly woven together on a mobile platform to maximize detection, reliability and scalability while minimizing nuisance and false alarms. Payloads can be changed depending on the mission and networked with other sensors, FLIR vehicles and command and control nodes, yielding an unparalleled capability. LTV is perfect for guarding borders and critical infrastructure.

This vehicle is good for following applications:
• Force Protection
• Border Surveillance
• Tactical Reconnaissance
• Pipeline Security
• Mobile Security
• Target Tracking
• Long Range Surveillance

Key features are the sensors on the ATV – all directly from FLIR – a radar and visible/thermal camera payloads ranging from 700 m to 30 km, with slew-to-cue of cameras to radar tracks. Optional Payloads cover up to four spectral bands including visible, near-IR (NIR), short-wave IR (SWIR) and mid-wave IR (MWIR) bands, option for All-digital, High Definition 1080P/720P for all video channels, it can track over 500 targets at the same time and use Laser Designator, Laser Rangefinder, Laser Pointer and Illuminator options to measure, locate and point them for other forces. Wirelessly provides other personnel, vehicles and C2 systems with target bearing and geo-referenced coordinates, identifying the precise location and direction of the target.

Also at their booth, FLIR is showing its great range of handhelds and weapons night vision sensors.
