system provides full detection, classification, recognition and identification
capabilities in total darkness, meeting the highest level of performance for
night-time surveillance.

With one
kilometre of recognition-level imaging and 1,200 metres of classification-level
imaging, the GVS1000 delivers the details, such as clothing or letters, necessary
for determining whether an object or person is ‘friend or foe’. This level of
long-range imaging – nearly impossible to obtain with other night-time
surveillance technologies – is often required for critical applications, such
as maritime monitoring, transportation surveillance and extended perimeter

The GVS1000 is
equipped with advanced optics, including an IR-corrected, long range lens
capable of 60x optical zoom. With a focal length of 12.5-750 mm or 25-1500 mm,
the lens works in conjunction with the high performance Bosch Dinion sensor to
produce ultra-high quality images at far distances in day and night conditions.

The GVS1000 uses
two sets of active IR illuminators for both long and medium-to-short range
night-time imaging, eliminating the safety concerns commonly associated with
laser-based infrared systems. Users can control IR illumination manually or
configure it to turn on and off automatically using a photocell.

A high precision
pan and tilt motor and rugged all-weather design, including weatherproof
housing and integrated wiper, ensures the GVS1000 is suitable for precise
imaging in the most extreme weather environments. End users can
operate the system with a single joystick keyboard controller for maximum
