Euronaval 2018: HGH Infrared SPYNEL 360° Selected for an African Navy

High Detection Rates and Minimal False Positives

HGH Infrared Systems has won a contract from a leading shipyard to equip three new warships for an African navy with the latest generation of SPYNEL 360° thermal cameras, thus cementing its leading position in the field of security optronics for wide-area surveillance.

We are proud to have been selected as [the] preferred wide-area surveillance sensor manufacturer by an African navy. SPYNEL 360° has become part of the ‘must have’ security equipment based on thermal imaging technology to detect asymmetric threats. We have been equipping ports and military ships for many years now, and this significant contract demonstrates the leadership of HGH Infrared Systems in panoramic imaging sensors. We are committed to providing the best situational awareness whether at sea or along the coast,” commented the company’s Sales Director, Edouard Campana.

These warships will be built over the next five years and will be equipped with the latest maritime technologies. Part of the complete surveillance equipment of the vessel, the high resolution SPYNEL-X, with its 24/7 wide-area surveillance capabilities, can detect, track and record an unlimited number of threats from a distance of 15km, even in adverse weather conditions. The new V-LRF technology features a visible channel to enhance threat identification as well as a laser range finder to measure the threat distance, while maintaining continuous tracking. SPYNEL thus assures quality visual identification of potential airborne or seaborne threats.

HGH’s surveillance systems have been selected for their ability to maintain a high detection rate without false positives, to resist all vibrations that affect ships and to be stabilised at sea state level 6, with 4-6m waves. Built to military standards, SPYNEL sensors have already been selected by several navies and installed on multiple warships and maritime platforms around the world.
