The same features described above with Multiple Camera Hook-Up
SPI-IR 360C Thermal Camera System is one of the
basic building blocks of our rugged military grade
family of environmentally hardened double enclosure
thermal surveillance designs.
The enclosure is the same one that is used in
our mobile and fixed mount pan tilt systems (minus
the pan tilt of course) and can be mounted in a
variety of fixed positions.
The IR 360 double enclosure has several
distinct advantages over competing models.
enclosure features sealed hardware mounting so
that there are no bolt holes that extend from the
outer environment into the thermal sensor / lens
Due to this engineered design the unit is
able to maintain its environmental hardness even
with loose or completely missing bolts.
Competing units that use through bolts
with backing nuts will loose complete
environmental integrity if just one bolt becomes
loose or is missing.
IR 360 environmental housing comes standard with
a carbon hardened germanium window.
Competing brands may offer low-grade
non-hardened germanium or inferior silicone type
windows in an effort to cut costs.
We have found that non-hardened germanium
windows are completely unsuited to military
grade applications and systems installed with
this technology will notice a steady decline in
image quality as the window becomes scratched
and pitted from ordinary environmental stresses.
This is especially critical in mobile
applications where we have seen systems with
non-hardened windows become completely unusable
in a matter of months.
Additionally, low cost silicone windows
have lower transmission values and durability
than premium carbon hardened germanium pieces
and are never used in the IR-360 line of thermal
infrared camera systems.
thermostatically controlled heating elements
provide you with maximum usability in the widest
range of environmental extremes.
Many companies offer a variety of systems
to claim extreme weather readiness including
wipers, heat sinks and simple insulation.
We have found that wipers are a neat item
to look at but in the real world they offer
little if no usable benefit to icing problems.
In addition wipers are a costly item (in
terms of initial system design and maintenance)
that must be regularly replaced.
In a fixed pole or building mount
scenario this would require man power to climb
the pole and either replace the wiper at the top
of the pole or un-mount the entire camera
assembly and bring it to the ground for repair.
Neither solution lends to maximum uptime
for the unit.
Heat sink devices and insulation
solutions can only offer a limited amount of
time until they become overwhelmed by the
constant stress of environmental extremes.
The only reliable long-term solution we
have found is our rock solid thermostatically
controlled heater elements.
The heater element will provide you with
continuous operation of internal thermal imaging
electronics and maintain a consistent lens
temperature that is critical to accurate thermal
IR 360 line of thermal camera systems has
completely sealed thermal sensor and lens
This might seem like a no-brainer but it
is in fact not an industry standard.
Competing systems in effort to cut costs
have left the lens exposed to the elements or at
least the front face of the lens.
Some may even claim that it is a carbon
hardened germanium lens and it sealed around the
side for protection from the elements.
This design strategy has several glaring
flaws in it.
First and foremost a thermal infrared
lens system (especially long range versions) are
very costly and generally make up a good portion
of the cost to acquire the system.
Even carbon hardened germanium optics
will wear out eventually when exposed to the
When this happens it is time to scrape
the most expensive single piece of the system
and replace it.
Next we have the issue of the lens and
detector being in two different environments and
possibly a wide range of temperature extremes.
This type of scenario does not lend it
self to accurate imaging performance.
The IR 360 never comes with an exposed
lens surface and it is our opinion that you
should not even consider such a design for any
military grade applications.
The PT series
SPI-IR 360PTF and SPI-IRPTM thermal camera systems
combine the benefits of the rugged C camera and
housing with an equally robust integrated Pan Tilt
The Pan Tilt unit is environmentally hardened
and suited for a wide range of military and civilian
Our PT offers the following distinct
stainless steel gears and chains offer long-term
stability and resist breakage under hard loading
such as in a mobile mounted scenario.
Other models can employ belt drives,
aluminum or even plastic internal components
that we feel will fail under military loading
If a drive belt slips or plastic gears
crack while the unit is mounted on an HMMWV (High
Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicle) then
the system would become useless until it was
disassembled and repaired.
We feel that a steel drive train offers
the user the most durable rock solid solution to
high demand thermal imaging applications.

referred to as Tactical Automated Sensor System
means that the IR 360 has meet or exceeded
certain parameters set for by the US Air Force
In other words the IR 360 thermal sensors
“play” well with other intrusion and
surveillance sensor systems and can be easily
tied into a new or existing security system for
full time network centric security.
Centric capability allows the IR 360 systems to
be tied into other systems via analog, digital
or Ethernet configurations allowing for a free
flow of security information among battlefield
and security systems.
The systems can easily integrate into C4ISR
