Wide Area Surveillance System

Wide Area Surveillance System

The Wide Area Surveillance System provides instantaneous wide area situational awareness.

With a panorama of 360° and a high-resolution digital video encompassing 4000 x 1000 at 20 frames per second, the sensor initially began operations in the visual band.

The system evolved into a ruggedised module that was tested in the maritime domain for the detection of small craft, in support of anti-piracy operations.

The Wide Area Surveillance System was further upgraded to employ thermal cameras and active cooling.

Calibration of the cameras was done using the CSIR’s patented Automatic Photogrammetric Camera Calibration System (APCCS).

With world-class tools, sophisticated techniques and knowledge workers with decades of experience, the CSIR is positioned to adequately satisfy the requirements of the customer with regard to surveillance systems.
