AVIV is a short to mid-range surveillance system designed for perimeter defense and border protection. It enables police and other law enforcement agencies to protect critical assets and vital infrastructure installations such as sensitive border zones airports, and oil refineries from hostile penetrations.
The system is mounted on a robust, highly precise pan-tilt unit, equipped with day and night (thermal) cameras. It allows for both day and night observation from remote locations using an intuitive, user-friendly control unit.
AVIV easily integrates with additional means of surveillance such as detection fence systems, motion detection radars and Unattended Ground Sensors (UGS). When an intrusion is detected by any of these systems, AVIV automatically focuses on the detection area to provide a real-time video investigation of the intrusion. In addition, AVIV integrates with viewing and management software or other C4i systems.
Giraffe is a long-range surveillance system designed to provide powerful Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance capabilities (ISR) for commercial ports and merchant ships. The system provides civilian and government marine authorities with real-time situational awareness even under extreme weather conditions, such as severe fog.
Giraffe is mounted on a gyro stabilized pan-tilt unit equipped with a Day and long-range thermal camera, which enables both day and night observation as well as target acquisition from remote locations using an intuitive, user-friendly Command and Control unit- AVIV C2I or C2I/ C4I systems.
TOM is a vehicle-mounted surveillance system that offers any type of patrol vehicle patrol vehicles a high quality, mobile video surveillance unit that gives vehicles operators real-time video enabling them to be fully aware of what is happening outside and around the vehicle. TOM was designed and developed to fit on any type of vehicle from small patrol cars to large trucks.
TOM enables the operators to observe both day and night from inside the vehicle using the compact and user-friendly Command and Control Unit. The Command and Control Unit also allows the operator to continue surveillance outside the vehicle and to send remotes reports to the control center. Although the cameras are very sensitive, the system is designed to withstand rugged terrain and harsh environmental conditions. It is mounted on a robust, highly precise pan-tilt unit, equipped with day and thermal cameras.
Hawk-Eye is a surveillance system, designed for perimeter defense and border protection. It is ideal for strategic locations such as airports, borders, critical utilities, nuclear plants and oil refineries.
The system is based on a robust, highly precise, gyro stabilized pan-tilt unit, equipped with day and night cameras (thermal uncooled), allowing both day and night observation from a remote location. GPS, LRF and compass systems are optional.
The system is easily integrated with any vehicle as well as additional means of surveillance such as detection fence systems, motion detection radars and Unattended Ground Sensors (UGS). When an intrusion is detected by any of these systems, Hawk-Eye automatically focuses on the detection area to provide a real-time video investigation.
C-HAWK is a surveillance system designed for maritime environments, such as civilian ports and ships that are often difficult to protect. The system is based on a robust, highly precise pan-tilt unit equipped with day and night (thermal) cameras (uncooled), allowing both day and night observation from remote locations. GPS, LRF and compass systems are optional. It is designed to help civilian and government agencies enforce border policies, such as stopping illegal immigration and drug smuggling.
C-HAWK easily integrates with additional means of surveillance such as sonar or motion detection radars When an intrusion is detected by any of these systems, C-Hawk automatically focuses on the detection area to provide a real-time video investigation.
MODOS is a discreet early-warning multi-sensor intruder detection and observation system that includes motion-detection radar, seamlessly integrated with an AVIV Video Surveillance system that can play a significant role in urban security architecture. This stand-alone system enables police and other law enforcement agencies to easily and effectively detect and record activity even in crowded urban areas. This system can be customized to install sensors in various discreet ways to guarantee that they provide a safe degree privacy and transparency, but are not easily detected by intruders.
MODOS is ideal for protecting sensitive sites, such as oil depots, ports, airports, and border installations. The AVIV Video Surveillance system includes a highly precise pan-tilt unit, an uncooled thermal imager for night vision and a high-performance day camera enabling both night and day observation even under harsh weather conditions. It is ideal for 24/7 video security applications.
MODOS operates as a single integrated system in “slew-to-cue” mode, which means that the AVIV surveillance and observation head is slaved to the radar system, and as soon as an intrusion is detected by the radar, AVIV’s Pan & Tilt unit turns to locate the intruder.
MODOS automatically controls the camera’s zoom & focus to display the intruder in the most effective way in the center of screen.
