Navtech Radar launched a new airport surveillance solution at the British-Irish Airports Expo in London on 12-13 June, in partnership with camera specialist Dallmeier.
The AdvanceGuard high-definition millimetre wave radar from Navtech is integrated with the Panomera multifocal sensor system from Dallmeier for high-resolution video surveillance.
Navtech Radar Sales Manager Tsvetan Tsonkov told Jane’s that the integration with Panomera provides a new level of situational awareness. Panomera comprises an array of single-megapixel sensor cameras with lenses of different focal lengths. Video streams are recorded and an alarm is generated if there is an event of special interest.
Panomera delivers high-resolution images and a fast frame rate without pan, tilt, or zoom functions. Each video feed is recorded independently on a multichannel recorder, but can be played back as one continuous image. Users can zoom in on remote objects without affecting other views, providing detailed images at ranges of up to 1 km.
Navtech Radar also offers an automated solution for foreign object debris (FOD) detection. Its FOD150 high-definition radar is designed to detect debris as small as 3 cm² at a maximum range of 150 m, in all weather or light conditions.
