Stabilized Panoramic Automatic Target Acquisition & Recognition System
The SPIDER is a highly sophisticated, wide area, passive, real time, Electro-Optical stabilized Target Acquisition System which automatically detects motion in a wide panoramic view. It can be installed on towers, poles, tripods, etc.
The system incorporates a Thermal Imaging (TI) Camera with a Continuous Zoom Lens, a colored daylight TV Camera, Eyesafe Laser Rangefinder and Laser Pointer.
The SPIDER has two modes of operation:
Panoramic Scan Mode with automatic target acquisition. The scan sector may be selected in azimuth and elevation axes and range. Up to ten scan sectors can be defined.
Observation Mode with live video for target recognition, identification and tracking.
The system is operated and controlled by a Control and Display Unit (CDU) which is equipped with proprietary software.
The CDU is available in two options:
- Ruggedized CDU – for mobile and field applications.
- Commercial PC CDU – for use in climate controlled room.
EO/IR Gyro-stabilized System.
- Thermal Imaging (TI) Sensor for observation and scanning.
- CCD Camera for observation and scanning.
- Laser Range Finder.
- Laser Pointer for target marking.
