HGH Announces an Enhanced Version of CYCLOPE software, with Artificial Intelligence and Automatic Threat Classification Features

May 18th 2021, Paris, France – HGH, the world-leader in electro-optics systems for security and defense applications, announces new Artificial Intelligence technology for its thermal image processing software. CYCLOPE is SPYNEL IR security sensors’ panoramic detection and tracking software, used for the surveillance of critical infrastructures, military bases, coastlines, and for navy applications across the world.

CYCLOPE’s new Automatic Classification feature is a deep learning module allowing the software to automatically recognize and classify all types of detected objects. Thanks to this new software option, the operator gets a clear understanding of the situation and its risks to take proactive decisions. It allows also to save precious time at the investigation analysis stage.

On the  CYCLOPE interface , security operators have access to a 360° IR panoramic banner and radar view where all the detections are displayed in real-time. The zoom windows allow to automatically display and follow detected threats. With the Automatic Classification option, a bookmark is automatically displayed, with a specific icon representing the threat, or written in full.

Thanks to CYCLOPE’s Behavior Analysis , operators can configure the software so that defined security actions are automatically triggered if abnormal behaviors are detected; for instance if a line drawn by the operator is crossed, if the path analysis is suspicious, or if the AIS or ADSB is unknown. These security actions can be alarms, emails, screenshots or videos automatically sent to operators, a central alarm automatically called or flashing lights triggered.

Cyril Marchebout, Sales Manager and expert in CYCLOPE software, commented, “ We developed CYCLOPE AI to help operators overcome the challenges they face every day: identify multiple threats in real-time and react quickly.”


HGH will showcase these new features booth 2026 at SeaAirSpace, August 2-4th, National Harbor, MD USA, and at Sea Future, September 28th-October 1st, La Spezia, Italy. More information:
