Fire Finder is a smart automatic thermal imaging and television system of early fire detection which comprises a high-resolution thermal core (640х480 minimum), a high sensitive video module, a laser rangefinder, a weather station, a GLONASS module, an electronic compass, an azimuth sensor, an elevation angle sensor, and multi-function high-end IP video server.
The FireFinder system serves as a 24-hour, all-weather automatic surveillor and a fire hazards analyzer and a predictor within its operational range and intended for early detection of forest fires and civil and industrial facility threat-inducing factors.Multi-sensor panoramic view of the surroundings (a panoramic video picture and a thermal image superimposition)allows high-precision visual referencing of a detected thermal contrast object to a panoramic video picture. The GLONASS module combined with the rangefinder and the electronic compass allows determination of exact fire coordinates.
- 24-hour, all-weather operation (in case of clouds, fog, snow, rain and/or other unwanted factors)
- No-fail reliable finding and highlighting a thermal contrast object that may be standing out of the general background (e.g. a fire source) due to the stable operation of a thermal imaging camera under any conditions
- Early fire detection up to 10-12 km distance
- Compatible with general and specific-purpose geoinformation systems
- Fully automated fire source detection
- Highlighted mapping of any scanned area
- Recording and retrospective reconstruction of any event sequence within the operational range
- Fire hazard identification against meteorological data
- Remote control by an operator
- Real-time sharing all surveillance data and/or any detected fire information
- Electronic mapping of the fires which might be detected, including exact geographic values, and cumulative dual spectrum image screen displaying options:
- fragmented – fusion of different fragments generated by different spectral bands in accordance with the observed object emission
- combined - a combination of object’s image shapes in the visible spectrum and its pseudo-colour thermal image
- semi-transparent - one of the images is a background for the other; their combination is prioritized by an operator.
