Imenco UK Ltd Underwater Camera and CCTV Systems for Naval Applications
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.
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.
