Photonis offers a variety of solutions to help address the security and surveillance needs of today’s most critical scenarios. Whether your application requires a high performance imaging system for long range surveillance (up to 10km) or a handheld device for closer monitoring, Photonis has a solution for you. We provide a broad range of products for surveillance, mobile and security applications, based on our different technologies such as day-through-night CMOS imaging or intensified cameras for specific applications.
As a leader in night vision sensor technologies, Photonis is well-positioned to extend our detection into the Homeland Security arena. Our sensors can detect the presence of specific chemicals, radiation or gas threats, perform image mapping and even assist with forensic science investigations.
As global tensions increase, the need for 24/7 surveillance to protect both mobile and fixed assets must be reliable under a wide range of environmental and operational conditions. Cameras chosen as part of a wide area surveillance network need to have the capability to provide high quality imaging across a wide range of lighting conditions. Photonis low-light CMOS cameras can provide day-through-night imaging for both static and mobile applications.
In order to address the technical concerns that plague long‐range observation in low-light conditions, Photonis has developed ultra low‐light camera family, using EBCMOS (Electron Bombarded CMOS) or ICMOS (Intensified CMOS) technologies. These cameras provide a fast frame rate, superior resolution, and increased sensitivity, making them well‐suited for long range observations in dark conditions (even of fast-moving objects) without the need for supplemental illumination or cooling. The digital architecture also prevents damage from sudden bright event damage and halos, allowing it to operate equally well in full daylight conditions as well as in low-light situations.
The Photonis Image Intensifier Tubes are used for a number of low-light and surveillance detection systems including night vision. The wide variety of phosphor screens and photocathode options allow for customization based on different application such as Portable Chemical Screening, LIDAR/LADAR, Perimeter Control, or even UV corona discharge detection.
