Close Detection

Locating individuals who may be injured or in shock close to a serious accident scene is a challenge at nighttime. As too is tracking down a possible suspect who has just escaped into a darkened area. These cases are time-critical, the longer victim remains undiscovered the faster their condition will deteriorate and the better chance the suspect has of escaping. Time is of the essence, and in poor conditions an infrared thermal camera will give the officer a better chance of locating the target.

We offer a complete range of portable infrared thermal cameras to police services in the UK and, due to budget restrictions, it is essential to select the right camera for the appropriate application. For instance, locating injured or shocked individuals after an accident or a suspect on the run, it would be unlikely the detection requirement would be more than 500m. In this case, a model such as the Scout II 320 that has a detection distance of 502m should be adequate. The Guide IR510-384 would also suffice having a detection range of 400m.

Covert Observation

Over longer distances, a higher model specification would be required for the effective monitoring of suspects, possibly with a recording function. Our ZOOMIR camera is equipped with a 30 – 100mm zoom lens that can detect an individual of average height at almost 2500 meters. This uncooled camera fulfils most military and security applications and is in active service throughout Europe. Another prime alternative would be the Thermoteknix range of infrared cameras that are manufactured in the U.K and have won several Queens’ awards for export achievement, both in sales and technology. The TiCAM 600 and the TiCAM 750 ranges would be particularly suitable and are amongst some of the most technically advanced cameras commercially available.

Vehicle Mounted

In conjunction with our Swiss associate company based in Zurich, we also provide a vehicle-mounted unit. The ThermoDome TD-6300 is a dual thermal/daylight camera that sits on top of the vehicle and is linked to the interior where images can be viewed on a Panasonic Toughbook LAN, a rugged 10” tablet. The camera comes with fitting mounts and touch controller software. This can be customised to any vehicle and pictures from an incident site can be simultaneously and securely transmitted to control headquarters for further evaluation. We can advise, install and provide the communications system.

Please contact us if you are interested in this vehicle-mounted option.
