Detect, recognize and identify multiple threats early & react fast!

SPYNEL-U is the best IR surveillance solution for the surveillance of infrastructure such as airportsports or critical infrastructure perimeter monitoring. Solid, reliable & cost effective, it can detect multiple threats simultaneously, even the most difficult to detect, like small or moving ones. Spynel-U does not require any cryogenic cooler and ensures long-term reliability and maintenance-free operation.

  • 1 – DETECT 360° thermal video: More contrast, better detection
  • 2 – IDENTIFY & TRACK 360° visible video: With the new SPYNEL-U, take advantage of a better identification range and of an improved image quality for day & night tracking of multiple intruders
