Kongsberg Maritime Marine CCTV and Underwater Camera Imaging Equipment
Kongsberg Maritime (KM) Camera Group provides marine closed-circuit television (CCTV) and underwater camera imaging technology to many navies, special forces, coastguards and security specialists worldwide.
The company designs and engineers quality camera systems using a wide range of available technologies.
Naval surveillance systems for surface vessels
We have extensive experience in the design, manufacture and supply of specialised cameras and CCTV systems for surface navy vessels.
Solutions include our amphibious low-light surveillance systems (ALLSS), and helicopter observation surveillance systems (HOSS), which have low-light capabilities, as well as integrated MIL-SPEC CCTV surveillance systems for day and night surveillance, monitoring, safety and security purposes. These systems are available in standard definition (SD) monochrome, high-definition (HD) colour day / night, with analogue and internet protocol (IP) options.
The systems comprise various camera and control options that have been fully qualified to meet the stringent high military level specifications for shock (MIL-STD-901D ‘hammer’ shock test), vibration (MIL-STD-167-1A Shipboard), electromagnetic interference (EMI) (MIL-STD-461F) and temperature and humidity (MIL-STD-810F).
The system provides monitoring options both above and below deck, including areas such as a flight / helideck, well deck, hangar bay, engine room, machinery space and waterline security.
Marine CCTV equipment for naval vessels
In addition to our fully military qualified range, we also provide a marine range of CCTV equipment that has been successfully deployed with many naval support vessels, patrol ships and coastguards.
Our KM marine CCTV systems are flexible and can be configured with either digital or analogue architectures, incorporating a combination of high-quality, best fit in-house designs, with modified off-the-shelf (MOTS) video camera stations, telemetry and control components.
Our external marine pan-tilt-zoom camera (PTZ) colour day / night cameras are available in various configurations and materials, with options for additional infrared (IR) illumination or longwave infrared (LWIR) thermal imaging capability.
Each system component is designed, rigorously tested and qualified for use in the most challenging marine environments. Many components also comply with the military level specifications for shock, vibration, EMI, temperature and humidity.
Digital IP CCTV for naval ship environments
The KM Camera division provides a full range of digital IP CCTV solutions comprising rugged cameras, video management software (VMS), servers, workstations, network switches and uninterruptible power supply (UPS).
The camera solutions combine state-of-the-art IP camera technology within ultra-rugged stainless-steel / aluminium housings suitable for extreme naval ship environments.
We have a full range of IP cameras (both HD and SD) incorporating not only PTZ cameras but fixed power-over-ethernet (PoE) options, including ‘DNV GL’ type approved stainless-steel unit, LWIR thermal imaging cameras, IR LED Illuminators and MIL-qualified options. All cameras are fully open network video interface forum (ONVIF) compliant.
Our digital IP systems offer great flexibility, high-definition performance and ease of installation.
Submarine camera solutions for monitoring and navigation
