Imenco 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 engineer’s quality camera systems using a broad spectrum 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.

The company provides amphibious low-light surveillance systems (ALLSS) and helicopter operations surveillance systems (HOSS). These feature 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 Imenco Marine CCTV system employs high-definition camera-viewing solutions for every monitoring application and vessel location, including topside, hazardous area, below-decks and subsea.
The interactive smart ship map features simplified camera selection and monitoring.
Imenco produces DNV GL-type-approved high-definition (HD) power-over-ethernet (PoE) cameras for challenging marine environments.
Rugged naval MIL-SPEC cameras are provided by Imenco and include LWIR thermal imaging options used for detecting hot spots, fires and man overboard.
Imenco provides flexible and powerful video management software (VMS) with high-level functionality and configuration.
HOSS and ALLSS are low-light ‘MIL-qualified’ CCTV systems designed for on-deck observations on-board naval surface ships and are proven against the US Navy 'Hammer' shock test.
Imenco UK provides high-performance fleet fit, low-light-level submarine underwater cameras, lamps and control systems for monitoring, navigation and tactical purposes.
Imenco offers bespoke control, viewing and digital recording LRUs for naval submarine use.
Low-light underwater cameras are suitable for submarine special forces ops and general covert surveillance operations.
Imenco is a world-leader in the development and supply of advanced aviation and missile fuelling systems.

ALLSS and HOSS solutions include various camera and control capabilities that meet challenging high military-level specifications. These include 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) standards.

Monitoring is available for above and below deck such as flight / helideck, well deck, hangar bay, engine room, machinery space and waterline security areas.

Marine digital IP CCTV equipment for naval vessels

In addition to our fully military qualified range, we also provide Imenco Marine CCTV, which is a ruggedised digital marine IP CCTV system.

Imenco Marine CCTV provides commercial-off-the-shelf surveillance monitoring as well as control and recording solutions.

The unit meets safety, security and reliability requirements for a range of com­mercial, coastguard and naval support vessels. It also delivers improved operational efficiency as well as an inte­grated working environment for safe and efficient management of critical vessel operations and the deploy­ment and movement of ship personnel.

The system design allows for flexible configuration of operator stations with a wide choice of camera viewing solutions with specific camera designs to suit all top-deck, below-deck and underwater monitoring applications.

System compo­nents take full advantage of the latest IP Network and Pow­er-over-Ethernet (PoE) cabling infrastructure, simplifying instal­lation requirements, increasing flexibility and significantly reducing vessel installation costs.

Imenco Marine CCTV is economical and can be installed on vessels requiring only a few cameras, as well as larger vessel needing integrated units with hundreds of cameras.
