Thermal Radar

The World’s First Rotating Head 360° Uncooled Thermal Camera

Finally, an Affordable Solution for 360° Thermal Coverage!

TIR’s continuous rotating LWIR camera provides intelligent high definition infrared surveillance for challenging or remote sites. Rotating at speeds up to 60 RPM this incredible camera stitches together a composite image of up to 20 “virtual” thermal cameras creating a 360° thermal image of over 5 MP. Using Wi-Fi, Ethernet or the built in Cellular Modem an operator can view the composite image in near real time as it continuously updates. When ever the powerful on board video analytics detect an intrusion or high temperature event, the unit has the ability to send alerts via email, SMS, Wi-Fi, GSM Cellular or the Iridium Satellite network.

Applications Include:
  • Challenging and Remote Site Coverage
  • 24/7 360° Intrusion Detection
  • Early Forest Fire Detection
  • Border Surveillance
  • All Terrain Access and Surveillance
  • Monitor Sites with Little or No Infrastructure
  • Establish 360° GeoSpatial Environment for Other Camera Systems
  • Wide Area Continuous Thermal Monitoring

Fully Self Contained Surveillance Solution:
Thermal Radar operates as a fully self contained unit providing it’s own power, communications, connectivity, analytics and alert monitoring. You can literally take it anywhere an ATV can go and deploy it in minutes.


Powerful Onboard Video Analytics:
Simple, easy to use analytics allow the user to quickly identify intrusions over the entire 360° FOV.

Highly Flexible Alert Platform:
Once an alert has been identified by the analytics, Thermal Radar has the ability to send these event notifications along with coordinates and JPEG images via SMS, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, Cellular, Satellite or even pre-recorded phone messages. Vary the alert notifications by time of day, day of week, person, alert category, group, etc. Send only what you want to whom you want, when you want it.

Completely Undetectable:
Unlike Radar or other active surveillance systems, Thermal Radar is a completely passive system, rendering it invisible and impossible to detect.

Day or Night / Fair or Bad Weather System:
Thermal Cameras have long since demonstrated their ability to penetrate dust storms, fog, smoke and complete darkness. No lights, emitters or other devices are required. This camera sees the same image day or night without any assistance or support.

Cost Effective:
Thermal Radar’s unique ability to multiply the power and capability of a single thermal sensor to do the work of 20 separate sensors allows it to provide cost effective blanket thermal coverage to any site.

Rugged and Reliable:
All components, including the entire rotating assembly, are completely protected from the elements inside a sealed enclosure. No rotating seals to fail, no more sandblasted lenses, no more fogged out images are just a few of the advantages of Thermal Radar’s unique design.

Lightweight and Portable:
Thermal Radar tips the scales at less than four pounds. When combined with it’s optional, portable, aluminum tower, Thermal Radar can be easily towed to any site with a conventional ATV and deployed 30 feet in the air in minutes. No supporting infrastructure required. This combination is completely self contained.

ONVIF Member:
Made to operate with other ONVIF compliant devices.

Once calibrated, Thermal Radar has the ability to pinpoint any alert on a map and to send those coordinates to the user as part of the event notification. This makes Thermal Radar the ideal platform for tracking objects and can be used in conjunction with other camera systems to provide “slew to cue” data.
