The VISOR UVIS provides clear advantages for the under vehicle imaging and inspection procedure – an essential aspect of all professional vehicle search operations at locations such as:
- Critical infra-structure,
- Energy sites,
- Petrochem locations,
- Military bases,
- Border / frontier crossings,
- Major events etc
When you inspect vehicles at checkpoints you need the confidence that the images are of the highest standard. VISOR provides that confidence.
Mirrors on poles are not good enough
The green shaded part of this image shows the very limited area you can see with a mirror on a pole. The red area is the area you cannot see with a mirror and is the prime hiding place for threat items. Mirrors really restrict you to seeing only a small part of the underside of a vehicle and the wider and lower the vehicle, the less you can see. Also you are exposed to the weather and to the threat if there is one.
VISOR is the solution
With the VISOR UVIS you can remain at a safe distance and still examine the full colour image of the whole underside and you will be doing a much better job of the inspection task. This is
This VISOR image of the same car clearly shows the benefit of using a VISOR UVIS. VISOR’s advanced multi-camera GigE technology and VisorSoft processing software display a full image in about 1 second. The complete underside is shown as a high quality colour composite image. You can search the image frame by frame if you wish. The Zoom is at least 12x and because the you are looking at the original frame, there is no loss of resolution.
VISOR’s searchable archive facility allows you to compare images of the same vehicle.
Edge to edge and “see around”
All VISOR UVIS use high performance HD GigE colour cameras with wide angle lenses. Most of the cameras are angled to ensure edge to edge imaging and to maximise your ability to “see around” objects. These provide you with significant operational advantages.
You can see from these images how the “see around” facility works:
- The first image shows how the cameras are configured.
- The second is an animation which shows how a VISOR operator can use those images to see around objects – in this case finding a pipe bomb.
