ART Optronic Platform

ART Optronic Platform is a complete Surveillance System based on a state-of-the-art un-cooled thermal camera, a compact CCD SONY camera and a high precision pan/tilt device.

This combination provides a high performance multi-sensor (thermal and visible light) solution at a competitive price. The clear and sharp output thermal image guarantees a 3000+ meter detection range and an improved threat assessment capability in complete darkness.

ART Optronic Platform can be controlled using PELCO Protocol. The high precision pan/tilt unit provides accurate and stable pointing control and advanced features such as a radar slew-to-cue operation mode that enables automatic optical tracking of the intruders detected by other sensors.

ART Optronic Platform is therefore ideally suited to complement ART range of advanced early warning surveillance sensors such as ART Midrange High Resolution Ground Surveillance Radar or ART Enhanced Unattended Underground Sensors.

ART Optronic Platform is cost effective and can be easily integrated within a sensor network or preexisting security infrastructure.
