Bosch Security Systems Inc. has announced the GVS1000 Long Range Imaging System, an integrated day/night, pan/tilt/zoom surveillance solution for critical security applications. The GVS1000 system provides full Detection, Classification, Recognition and Identification (DCRI) capabilities in total darkness.

With 3,280 feet (1 kilometer) of recognition-level imaging and 3,937
feet (1200 meters) of classification-level imaging, the GVS1000
delivers the details, such as clothing or letters, necessary for
determining whether an object or person is friend or foe. This level of
long-range imaging ”“ nearly impossible to obtain with other nighttime
surveillance technologies ”“ is often required for critical
applications, such as maritime monitoring, transportation surveillance
and extended perimeter security.

The GVS1000 is equipped with advanced optics, including an
IR-corrected, long range lens capable of 60x optical zoom. With a focal
length of 12.5-750 mm or 25-1500 mm, the lens works in conjunction with
the high performance Bosch Dinion sensor to produce ultra-high quality
images at far distances in day and night conditions.

The GVS1000 uses two sets of active IR illuminators for both long and
medium-to-short range nighttime imaging, eliminating the safety
concerns commonly associated with laser-based infrared systems. Users
can control IR illumination manually or can configure it to turn on and
off automatically using a photocell.

A high precision pan and tilt motor and rugged all-weather design,
including weatherproof housing and integrated wiper, ensure the GVS1000
is suitable for precise imaging in the most extreme weather
environments. Users can operate the system with a single joystick
keyboard controller for maximum simplicity.
