Teledyne FLIR Unveils Commercial Ground-Based Radar, New Multispectral Camera Series
Elara R-Series radars and Triton FH-Series cameras are said to improve intruder tracking, geolocation and alerts for faster threat detection.
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. — Teledyne FLIR announces the release of new additions to its perimeter security portfolio for critical infrastructure: Elara R-Series Commercial Ground Security Radars and the Triton FH-Series Multispectral Fixed Cameras.
A first for Teledyne FLIR, the Elara R-Series is a commercial radar system for industrial commercial applications that offers increased detection coverage, auto-tracking, dynamic mapping and position intelligence of intruders.
Part of the Teledyne FLIR premium Triton family of cameras, the Triton FH-Series is said to deliver both intrusion detection and video verification through its high-resolution thermal and visible imaging capabilities. These features plus the ability to capture vital details using 4K imagery enables security personnel to properly identify and assess situations, significantly improving response time, according to the announcement.
The Elara R-Series introduces compact ground radars built to work within larger security systems to provide advanced warning of both human and vehicle intrusions beyond the fence line, while continuously tracking and precisely locating multiple targets. The series consists of two models, each designed with regional certifications in mind: the Elara R-290, which is compliant with Federal Communications Commission (FCC) guidelines, and the Elara R-190, which is Conformité Européenne (CE)-compliant for Europe.
The Elara R-290 features a 90° field of view, up to a 400-meter range for vehicle tracking, a 200-meter range for human tracking, and provides wide-area protection as well as situational awareness beyond the fence line. The Elara R-190 offers a 300-meter range for vehicles and 125 meters for humans.
These products are said to be designed for reliable detection in all weather and lighting conditions. The radars’ auto-tracking feature helps to direct pan-tilt-zoom surveillance sensors in the right direction; the radars also help expand coverage area and significantly minimize false alarms, according to the announcement.
In addition, both models can provide security personnel with precise, real-time data, 24/7.
The Triton FH-Series are ruggedized, multispectral fixed cameras that integrate thermal imaging for detection with 4K visible imaging to help identify intruders in harsh perimeter security settings. Critical infrastructure facilities will benefit from technological advancements, such as highly-accurate convolutional neural network (CNN)-based video analytics for both thermal and visible spectrums, which minimize false alarms and aid in geo-locating threats for superior situational awareness.
The on-board scheduling tool gives the operator the ability to select the type of analytics used to make detections based on time of day, business hours, and seasonality. Additionally, radiometric versions of the Triton FH-Series can be used for early fire detection applications to help critical sites operate safely and efficiently.
“Teledyne FLIR is committed to equipping security directors with technologies that empower them to protect their facilities and personnel at mission critical sites,” says Kai Moncino, global business development manager, Security at Teledyne FLIR. “The Elara R-Series and Triton FH-Series are built to enhance perimeter protection, providing accurate detection and alerting of threats. As with all of our new products, the Elara R-Series and Triton FH-Series are designed with the latest cyber-hardening features for added security and peace of mind.”
