Mega Yacht Security: SPYNEL Camera on Board for Night&Day 24/7 Thermal Surveillance
Private mega yacht owners with luxury floating assets have become soft targets for piracy and international terrorism. Modern threats come in all shapes and sizes, including divers, swimmers, RIBs, UAVs, which are currently not detectable by conventional security equipments such as radars.
The Anti-Piracy solution, at sea and in port
Early detection is the key to preventing successful attacks on mega yachts. True security means stopping a threat by detecting pirates or terrorists as early as possible, before they are too close to the mega yacht as well as being effective 24/7, night and day, even in adverse weather conditions.
Traditional security devices commonly employed for maritime surveillance (such as CCTV cameras, electronic intrusion detection or radars) are effective solutions for specific usages. HGHâs SPYNEL thermal cameras come with a bundle of advantages within one single sensor providing early panoramic detection, real-time tracking and video recording of any threats or objects. It can be used at sea during navigation but also at port or near the coast, night and day.
SPYNEL has become part of the must-have security equipment of mega yachts. With its 24/7 and large area surveillance capabilities, SPYNEL thermal camera can detect, track and record an unlimited number of threats or objects up to 15 km distant.
Robust and compact, HGHâs SPYNEL sensors can be used both as a stand-alone surveillance system or be part of a complete surveillance solution.
Ultimately, thermal imaging on a yacht provides increased range at night without the need of lighting. SPYNEL is also used as an assistance device for night navigation by the captain. The complete solution including HGH Spynel sensor and CyclopeTM software has been designed for a quick and easy handling by the security crew.
HGHâs thermal sensor is the ultimate solution to face increased piracy threats around the world, including many popular ports in the Caribbean, off the coast of Florida, the Mediterranean, Mexico, South Pacific, Singapore, Maldives, Africa, Gulf of Suez, Oman, Aden or the Arabic Sea.
Cutting-edge technology for Mega Yacht security
The new V-LRF option available for the Spynel-S features a visible HD image channel to enhance threat identification and raise doubt as well as a Laser Range Finder to measure the threat distance while keeping continuous tracking. In addition, the new alarm management module of CyclopeTM 5.0 software provides new advanced capabilities to distinguish abnormal behavior of a target and trigger appropriate alarms.
