A new maritime surveillance sensor system will identify and track smugglers, terrorists, or any other threat, day and night, on rough seas. The system reveals the details necessary for long-range vessel detection, identification, and threat assessment.

Designed for full-time, all-weather maritime duty, SeaFLIR 280-HDEP by FLIR Systems provides long-range target detection, identification, and tracking for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR); maritime search and rescue; interdiction; covert operations; exclusive economic zone constabulary; and disaster recovery.

Qualified to MIL-STD-461 and MIL-STD-810, the system has several near-infrared and shortwave infrared sensors, and laser illuminator and pointer options light up targets for personnel with night-vision capability.

The maritime sensor system has a thermal-imaging camera, daylight camera, low-light camera, spotter scope, and laser payloads. The system’s open-architecture offers a modular, scalable control electronics unit able to host high-power video processing and trained convolutional neural networks from FLIR and third-party solutions.

The maritime sensor system also offers optional display interface boards to display as many as six independent video streams; an optional vision processor and graphics processing unit and embedded digital video recorder with more than 150 hours of video and thousands of still image capacity; a removable solid-state 1-terabyte hard drive that users can swap it out for a spare drive and keep recording; and a configuration that enables fiber connection directly at the turret, according to
