HGH Infrared Systems' Background

HGH Infrared Systems: The Infrared Reference Since 1982.

The story of HGH Infrared Systems, expert in infrared  & electro-optics, began in France in 1982, when two pioneers of infrared technology met. René Houis was at this time director of the French subsidiary of an industrial thermography camera manufacturer, and Gilbert Gaussorgues was head of the French Navy optronics laboratory. When they decided to create HGH Infrared Systems, the company designed customized electro-optics equipment according to specific requirements.

Soon, HGH Infrared Systems started to launch two lines of products:

  • A wide range of infrared test equipment (blackbodies, IR and near IR collimators, universal test bench for optical maintenance, optronic test benches for optical detectors).
  • Infrared scanners, for non-contact temperature measurement.

Since the early 2000s, HGH has accelerated its international expansion, with over 80% of its production exported. HGH has established itself as an international reference for infrared technology innovation, thanks to the diversity and reliability of the solutions provided.

With skills acquired over decades, HGH developed a new range of products: Spynel, a 24/7 wide area surveillance system, with automatic intrusion detection and tracking over 360°. Spynel protects several critical infrastructure around the world, and won numerous international awards.
