The World’s First Rotating Head 360° Uncooled Thermal Camera

Finally, an Affordable Solution for 360° Thermal Coverage!

TIR’s continuous rotating LWIR camera provides intelligent high definition infrared surveillance for challenging or remote sites. Rotating at speeds up to 60 RPM this incredible camera stitches together a composite image of up to 20 “virtual” thermal cameras creating a 360° thermal image of over 5 MP. Using any Ethernet ready devices an operator can view the composite image in near real time as it continuously updates. When ever the powerful on board video analytics detect an intrusion or high temperature event, the unit has the ability to send alertsi to an HTTP server configured to receive and dispatch alerts.

Applications Include:
  • Challenging and Remote Site Coverage
  • 24/7 360° Intrusion Detection
  • Fire Detection
  • Border Surveillance
  • All Terrain Access and Surveillance
  • Monitor Sites with Little or No Infrastructure
  • Establish 360° GeoSpatial Environment for Other Camera Systems
  • Wide Area Continuous Thermal Monitoring

Fully Self Contained Surveillance Solution:
Thermal Radar operates as a fully self contained unit providing it’s own power, communications, connectivity, analytics and alert monitoring. You can literally take it anywhere an ATV can go and deploy it in minutes.

Powerful Onboard Video Analytics:
Simple, easy to use analytics allow the user to quickly identify intrusions over the entire 360° FOV.

Highly Flexible Alert Platform:
Once an alert has been identified by the analytics, Thermal Radar has the ability to send these event notifications along with coordinates and JPEG images to a dispatch service or other alert management tool. Vary the alert notifications by time of day, day of week, person, alert category, group, etc. Send only what you want to whom you want, when you want it.

Completely Undetectable:
Unlike Radar or other active surveillance systems, Thermal Radar is a completely passive system, rendering it invisible and impossible to detect.

Day or Night / Fair or Bad Weather System:
Thermal Cameras have long since demonstrated their ability to penetrate dust storms, fog, smoke and complete darkness. No lights, emitters or other devices are required. This camera sees the same image day or night without any assistance or support.

Cost Effective:
Thermal Radar’s unique ability to multiply the power and capability of a single thermal sensor to do the work of 20 separate sensors allows it to provide cost effective blanket thermal coverage to any site.

Rugged and Reliable:
All components, including the entire rotating assembly, are completely protected from the elements inside a sealed enclosure. No rotating seals to fail, no more sandblasted lenses, no more fogged out images are just a few of the advantages of Thermal Radar’s unique design.

Lightweight and Portable:
Thermal Radar tips the scales at less than four pounds. When combined with it’s optional, portable, aluminum tower, Thermal Radar can be easily towed to any site with a conventional ATV and deployed 30 feet in the air in minutes. No supporting infrastructure required. This combination is completely self contained.

Once calibrated, Thermal Radar has the ability to pinpoint any alert on a map and to send those coordinates to the user as part of the event notification. This makes Thermal Radar the ideal platform for tracking objects and can be used in conjunction with other camera systems to provide “slew to cue” data.

Early physical response to intrusions, threat and fires is key to minimize damage and losses.


A state-of-the-art, affordable thermal camera solution has long been an impossibility. Many organizations desiring to deploy such a solution have found that they simply could not afford such a luxury item until now. Thermal Radar is now affordable and available to a myriad of business applications including airports, bridges, car dealerships, construction sites, power plants, reservoirs or substations just to name a few.

Critical Infrastructure

It's becoming more crucial to protect critical infrastructure against threats, TIR's unique continuous 360 degree monitoring with flexible communication options allow all types of facilities to be monitored day and night.

TIR not only monitors the perimeter but also the approach to these facilities by reducing the critical reaction time for deterrent action activities. Fewer cameras equals less cost and maintenance.



Big Box Security

Big Box facilities have unique and challenging security and power needs. TIR allows a facility to be monitored day and night, inside or outside for theft and suspicious activities. Operates on 6 watts of power allowing large facilities to power down power hungry assets in off hours, saving $1000's in energy costs.


Oil and Gas

Remotely and passively monitor and protect your facilitates, whether it’s a large facility, single asset, on shore or off shore. Certified to operate in harsh conditions, TIR covers more ground for less money. Continuous 360 degree security in a cost-effective solution.


Cost effectively adds a thermal layer of security to most facilities.

Dept. Of Parks and Forestry

Public security and safety is on the minds of public officials and citizens alike, continuous 360 degree monitoring notifies when there is a breach of security allowing for fast physical response times. Continuous and remote thermal monitoring can serve as an early warning mechanism for forest fires before they threaten residential or commercial areas. Can be deployed and operated easily and remotely.

Fire Detection:
Thermal Radar can be used as an early detection and alert solution for forest fires. Utilizing our mobile 30 foot tower system, a thermal camera can be placed at high ground areas and be configured to detect a 3 meter fire from over 5 km away.

Intersection Control

A new and exciting use case for Thermal Radar will be the use in Intersection Control. Thermal Radar’s ability to have a 360 degree FOV (Field of Vision) allows the camera to observe the entire intersection. The intersection control system is then able to receive detailed triggers from Thermal Radar indicating approaching vehicles or pedestrians at the crosswalk waiting to move through the intersection. A single Thermal Radar camera can eliminate the need for pavement loops, lane based radar systems and crosswalk buttons all the while providing a live video feed of the entire intersection.

Public Safety/Dept. of Corrections

Limit liability with daytime and nighttime monitoring of outdoor limited light campus areas. Provides unique solutions to difficult security challenges in inner city prisons as well as more rural locations, thermal coverage allows for constant nighttime monitoring.
