Hertfordshire, UK, 17 September 2021– British threat detection specialist Silent Sentinel has announced the launch of the Aeron Laser Range Finder (LRF) camera platform today at DSEI. The Aeron LRF is a continual-rotation Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) camera featuring an uncooled LWIR thermal sensor with a range of zoom lenses, an HD-visible sensor with 30x zoom, and a Laser Range Finder, all contained within a compact and rugged housing. The Aeron LRF is available to view on Silent Sentinel’s stand no. H1-438 in the Security Zone at DSEI.
The Aeron LRF represents a new addition to the existing Aeron range of PTZ cameras, expanding the range to feature an integrated Laser Range Finder, which allows for target ranging upon Electro-Optical or Ti detection at ranges up to 8km.
With camera positioning accuracy levels of 0.01° and rapid pan and tilt speeds of up to 160° per second, the Aeron LRF offers absolute positioning feedback and is suitable for a broad range of surveillance applications in all conditions. The three sensors are contained within a hard anodised ruggedized housing which, like all Silent Sentinel products, is tested to an IP-67 level of environmental protection, providing optimum performance in the harshest environments. All three high-performance sensors of the Aeron LRF are contained within the compact and durable housing, providing a wholly unique weight and space saving solution.
The 30x zoom HD visible sensor comes with a lens wiper fitted as standard which helps to enhance visibility in poor weather conditions, and the uncooled LWIR thermal sensors offer zoom lens options up to 25-150mm,with a 640×480 resolution and the option of image stabilization. The Aeron LRF’s durability and precision means it is well-suited to the most challenging of applications, such as maritime, border security and vehicle-mounted installations.
The unveiling of the Aeron LRF follows the launch of the Jaegar Sonus yesterday, marking yet another step forward in Silent Sentinel’s ambitions to expand their technological offering. Silent Sentinel were also recently awarded the Export Business of the Year by the Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce for the second year in a row, adding to their impressive list of accolades which include a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade, won in 2020.
Silent Sentinel is a well-established provider of surveillance and security systems, specialising in both cooled and uncooled long-range thermal camera platforms, with products already exported to over 55 countries worldwide.
James Longcroft, Sales Director at Silent Sentinel said: “The Aeron Laser Range Finder represents a significant step forward in our commitment to offering cutting-edge new technologies as standard in our products, and we are very pleased with the results. DSEI is a dynamic environment perfectly suited to a product launch like this, and we are proud to be showcasing the Aeron LRF on our stand in the Security Zone this year.”
