The Silhouette Profiling Optical Tripwire is a rugged sensor that utilizes Brimrose’s superior engineering background to remotely gather surveillance information. The SPOT is designed to be quickly deployed, gather data from active targets and pass it along to commanding forces via external controllers with wired/wireless connections or directly to a receiver via satellite. With its silhouette data format and passive detector system SPOT is able to achieve significantly low transmission bandwidth sizes as little as 200 bytes as well as minimal power consumption. This makes SPOT a unique and effective asset for remote and power-sensitive surveillance missions. Watch the SPOT Demo Video to find out how the silhouettes provide sufficient detail for clearly identifying highly detailed targets.
SPOT Unattended Ground Sensor (UGS) Demo Close
Brimrose Technology's SPOT system is a novel unattended ground sensor (UGS) capable of capturing and classifying silhouettes of moving targets. Innovative imaging techniques allows the system to quickly and accurately discriminate between targets and unwanted silhouette artifacts such as noise and environmental changes, all without the need for constant human supervision. Utilizing a FLIR sensor and Adaptive signal processing methods, SPOT offers a rugged, cost-efficient solution for a wide variety of surveillance needs.
The image contents of this demo is updated in real time by sensor generated data. These silhouettes provide sufficient detail for clearly identifying highly detailed targets, in this case, 2 people walking on a small bridge and 2 cars crossing the bridge. Each pixel represents a spot size of approximately 4.5 inches.
After the successful demonstration of LWIR SPOT UGS in detection of moving object of interest, such as human, animal, vehicle as well as development of developed a Terra Harvest plugin for the SPOT, recently Brimrose Technology has demonstrated a SPOT UGS, utilizing a low-cost, low-power 2D array of thermal imager that offers better sihlouette image quality, and thus offers potential to further improve the classification accuracy while still using very low communication bandwidth. The SPOT system with the Terra Harvest Controller still is under research and development.
In addition of building a SPOT sensor improved from existing demonstration design, we companion software which enables the SPOT system to communicate with Terra Harvest Controller for further data processing and dissemination to the mission control. For more info, please contact us.
