Bosch GVS1000 sees far in the dark

Fairport, NY-based Bosch Security Systems, Inc. has introduced the GVS1000, which the company describes as the industry's longest active infrared imaging system for high-security applications.

The GVS1000 system provides full DCRI [i.e., detection, classification, recognition and identification) capabilities in total darkness, meeting the highest level of performance for nighttime surveillance, Bosch says.

With 3,280 feet (1 kilometer) of recognition-level imaging and 3,937 feet (1,200 meters) of classification-level imaging, the GVS1000 delivers such details as clothing or letters, necessary for determining whether an object or person is friend or foe, the company adds.

This level of long-range imaging is often required for critical applications, such as maritime monitoring, transportation surveillance and extended perimeter security, Bosch also notes.
