THERMAL IMAGER NIGHT VISION CAMERAS

 

Strixmarine thermal night vision infrared stabilized marine camera. Heat detector camera.Strixmarine thermal imager night vision heat detector cameras utilize unique, Patented technology to perfectly stabilize a high-resolution image even on small vessels and rough sea conditions. The camera systems are designed to be used for various demanding marine applications like SAR (Search and Rescue) boats, law enforcement vessels, high-speed patrol craft, work boats, fishing boats, cruise ships, commercial vessels and other types of vessels.
The camera can provide equally clear, high resolution video feed at 25 Hz frequency in total darkness, as well as in bright sunlight. You can even see through smoke and fog.

Camera is gyro-stabilized to counteract the motion of the boat or ship and providing a live video feed that’s stable to 0,01° of its central axis at accelerations of up to 9g. The algorithms adapt to the situation and any possible vibrations. The system works instantly upon being powered up and needs no calibration or special setup.


PERFECT STABILIZATION
Camera is gyro-stabilized using new, Patented technology, making stabilization immediate and perfect even on small vessels and extremely harsh conditions. System uses 3 gyroscopes, 3 inertial sensors and 3-axes magnetometer to ensure that even smallest movements are compensated.

PAN / TILT
Camera pan and tilt are controlled by proportional joystick, which can be integrated to vessel main console to minimize installation footprint. If wireless installation is preferred, then camera is operated by separate control module.

INSTANT LOOK
While camera is keeping it’s orientation to vessel bow, you can quickly and easily take a look to right or left just by moving joystick to this direction. When joystick is released, camera moves back to center position. Movements are fast, precise and immediate.

NAVIGATION MODE
Camera heading is related to the boat heading, is oriented to bow and turns with the boat. NB! This mode is integrated with Instant Look feature. While camera is keeping it’s orientation to vessel bow, you can quickly and easily take a look to right or left just by moving joystick to this direction. When joystick is released, camera moves back to center position.

AUTOMATIC TRACKING
Camera will keep it’s predefined (by operator) orientation and heading, no matter how boat turns and moves. This can be useful in MOB and/or SAR situations to ensure that you will never loose once found object. Camera precise heading is ensured by internal magnetometer / compass.

AUTOMATIC CENTERING
By press of button, camera turns its direction automatically to the front. Camera knows the heading of the boat, so it can always automatically adjust it`s direction to ensure that boat pilot can see to the front not loosing the time to find right heading.

CONTINUOUS PAN
To maximize camera view coverage, panning is 360° continuous in all directions. Panning speed is proportional to joystick position.

WIRELESS INSTALLATION
In addition to standard installation, this camera can be installed and controlled without any wiring. Control and receiving the video feed can be both wireless. The in-built antennas provide a control and video feed range of up to 3 km, what can be increased with the addition of external antennas.
