Controp introduces Twister
Controp Precision Technologies has introduced a new wide area automatic intruder detection system called Twister at DX Korea 2016.
Twister is a passive IR system that provides panoramic scanning and automatic detection of potential threats in real-time. It is designed for force protection, persistent surveillance and border protection.
Using advanced algorithms, Twister detects people and moving targets several kilometers away. Each ‘detection’ saves a ‘track file’ to which the operator can refer and investigate in real-time, while the system continues to operate and scan the designated area.
Twister consists of a cooled thermal imaging camera with continuous optical zoom lens and powerful image processing technologies – enabling the operator to zoom-in and choose the field-of-view most appropriate for the particular mission requirement. The operator may opt to discontinue the scan mode and investigate details using the continuous zoom in observation mode.
Lightweight and portable, the system can support mobile, infantry and dismounted military and security forces to survey those areas that might not be protected by other stationary systems.
Johnny Carni, Controp’s VP marketing and sales, said: ‘The Twister was developed in response to the critical need for a portable system that can secure a large area in real-time. Its quick deployment capability makes it an ideal solution for the protection of mobile forces, FOBs, border patrol units and protection of urban areas.'
