Controp USA has launched its comprehensive coastal surveillance and protection system, Tornado-ER.

As an electro-optical panoramic scanning and automatic target detection system, Tornado-ER can also be used for maritime traffic control, particularly in dense waters.

The technology is capable of providing a 360 panoramic infrared (IR) image, which gets updated continuously every three seconds with automatic and simultaneous detection of any moving targets in the water.

Controp CEO and president Hagay Azani said: “The Tornado-ER was specially developed to maximise coastal security through the use of today’s most advanced technologies.

“Detecting multiple mobile targets simultaneously, in real-time, at the shore and at sea, at long and short distances, the Tornado-ER ensures true border control. The system is already operational in Asia, and based on exceptionally positive feedback, we expect to generate considerable interest at the EuroNaval exhibition.”

“The Tornado-ER was specially developed to maximise coastal security through the use of today’s most advanced technologies.”

Featuring two thermal imaging IR cameras, Tornado-ER is passive and insensitive to RF jamming and can be used either as a standalone, or combined with external systems.

IR cameras provide real-time, panoramic image from short to long distances up to the horizon.

The system enables simultaneous target detection of moving objects such as swimmers, vessels of all sizes, small vessels on the background of larger vessels, and small floating objects.

This helps increase the protection and situational awareness of coastlines, waterways, seashores, ports, and harbours.

Furthermore, the system acts as an electro-optical radar for target detection, from 400m to more than 12km, providing a wide panoramic live image output in addition to an enhanced video analytics.
