The First Rotating Head 360 Degree Un-cooled Thermal Camera

Thermal Radar

360 Degree Thermal Camera

Download the Thermal Radar Brochure

Thermal Imaging radar has a continuous rotating long wave Infrared camera that provides high definition infrared surveillance for challenging or remote sites. The Thermal Radar can have rotating speeds of up to 60 RPM where it stitches together an image of up to 16 virtual thermal cameras which creates a 360 degree thermal image with up to a 5MP resolution. An operator can use wi-fi, Ethernet or a built in cellular modem to view composite images almost in real time as it continuously updates. Whenever an intrusion or high temperature event is detected by the powerful on board video analytics, the unit can send alerts via email, SMS, Wi-Fi, GSM Cellular or the Iridium Satellite network directly to the user.

Hydra Camera System

Thermal Radar + HD IR PTZ Camera

360 Degree Thermal with HD IR PTZ

The Hydra camera system combines the thermal radar with an HD PTZ camera with infrared night vision. The thermal radar continuously scans a 360 degree perimeter and when it detects an intrusion it will cue the PTZ camera to move to the alert area a zoom in for identification of the alert.

This system provides the ultimate combination of 360 degree thermal detection with high definition surveillance video. Once detection is made on the thermal sensor, the slew-to-cue function will move the PTZ camera in for a closer look.

Features & Benefits

Fully Self Contained Surveillance Solution:

Thermal radar can go anywhere that an ATV can and be deployed in minutes. The unit provides its own power, communications, connectivity, analytics and alert monitoring operating as a fully self-contained unit.

Powerful Onboard Video Analytics:

Our unit’s analytics allow the user to quickly identify intrusions over the entire 360° field of view.

Highly Flexible Alert Platform:

Thermal Radar can send event notifications along with coordinates and JPEG images via Wi-Fi, SMS, Ethernet, Cellular, Satellite or prerecorded phone messages once an alert has been identified by the analytics.

Completely Undetectable:

Thermal Radar is a completely passive system, making it invisible and impossible to detect.

Day or Night / Fair or Bad Weather System:

This camera sees the same image day or night without any assistance or support and is able to penetrate dust storms, fog, smoke, and complete darkness.

Cost Effective

Thermal Radar has the ability to multiply the power and capability of a single thermal sensor to do the work of 16 separate sensors. This allows it to provide affordable blanket thermal coverage to any site.

Rugged and Reliable:

All components of the thermal radar are sealed inside a sealed enclosure completely protecting the rotating assembly from the elements.

Lightweight and Portable

The thermal radar itself weighs just less than four pounds. Once combined with the optional portable tower it can easily be towed to any site and be deployed up to 30 feet in the air within minutes. This combination is completely self-contained.

ONVIF Member

Thermal radar is compatible with other ONVIF devices.


Thermal radar is the ideal platform for tracking objects and can be used with other camera systems to provide slew to cue data. It has the ability to pinpoint any heat movement on a map and to then send the coordinates to the user as an event notification.
