Product Description

Key to the Hecate Camera System is the expandable infrared video processing with embedded industry-standard interfaces empowering advanced processing and analytics in an industry-leading system.

The long wave infrared thermal camera module sets a new standard for performance. It utilises FLIR infrared video processing architecture to enable advanced image processing and several industry-standard communication interfaces while keeping power consumption low. The benefits of the thermal camera are that of providing operator “vision” of outlines via the thermal signatures of objects and animate objects.

All of this supported via Multiplexed video and audio to the Receiver unit operated in a variety of ways.

The Hecate Camera System is primarily designed and presented to mount on canines featuring a quick release system for increased operational flexibility with a long-life battery system allowing maximum operational time.

Key to the Hecate Camera System, is Its ability to adapt to multiple mounting and deployment options covering vehicles, poles, trees and alternate platforms – all as part of the system.
