Long-range Surveillance (LRS) Camera Systems

Long-range Naval Surveillance (LRS) Camera Systems - SPECTRELCST's SPECTREL high-end surveillance systems are designed for use coastal long-range surveillance and high-end homeland security applications.
The SPECTREL solutions are built around a highly sensitive CCD camera coupled with a ruggedized zoom lens, installed in a protective housing, designed to withstand harsh conditions. SPECTREL systems are designed to operate flawlessly within a temperature range of -40°C to +70°C without compromising performance.

The camera and lens are bore-sighted (optically aligned) so the object of interest stays in the picture even when the operator zooms in or out. Typical bore sighting deviation is ±0.2 milliradians, the equivalent to staying within a target area of ±20 cm, at a distance of 1 km.

Providing a field of view (FOV) of as little as 0.28°, the camera system facilitates recognizing a person at a distance of 8 km.

Remote Weapon Station (RWS) Sighting CameraNaval Ordnance Guidance - Remote Weapon Station (RWS) Sighting Camera

The MAGNEL series of integrated zoom cameras for Remote Weapon Systems is the perfect choice for customers demanding the highest performing electro-optic weapon guiding sub-systems.

Capable of operating under extreme conditions of temperature, shock and vibration, complying with MIL-STD 810G, the MAGNEL series can be mounted directly on the turret or barrel of a naval gun.

The camera system is bore-sighted to achieve a precision of ±0.2 mrad over the complete zoom range and the full temperature from -40°C to +70°C.
