Lumenera helps Searidge provide mission critical surveillance
|Searidge supplied the IntelliDAR system using Lumenera's Le165 network camera to Abu Dhabi Airport|
Searidge Technologies is a provider of mission critical technology and services in support of Air Traffic Control and Airport Operation markets. Focusing on providing specialised surveillance cameras for applications ranging from hot spot monitoring, airport surface management, to apron management, they chose to partner with Lumenera for advanced imaging solutions.
Lumenera's Le165 chosen for clarity and image detail
Searidge Technologies selected Lumenera's proven Le165 network camera as the imaging technology of choice for its IntelliDAR™ system. The system requires a camera with extreme low-light capabilities and outstanding image quality to capture video data under vast lighting conditions. This megapixel CCD camera provides outstanding clarity and image detail, enhancing the performance of IntelliDAR video analytic functionalities.
Searidge and Lumenera help secure Abu Dhabi Airport
Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE, has rapidly grown into a bustling cosmopolitan and a major investment centre. In 1982 a new airport was established approximately 30 kilometres east of Abu Dhabi City. At the time this facility was designed for a capacity of 3.5 million passengers per annum. The current multi-billion dollar master plan will raise the Airport's passenger capacity to 20 million passengers by 2010, and must ensure the safety and security measures keep up with these increased numbers.
Searidge Technologies was recently contracted by Abu Dhabi Airport Company to supply the IntelliDAR system using Lumenera's Le165 network cameras, to provide surface surveillance capabilities enabling air traffic controllers to have full situational and visual awareness of the airport's newly constructed runway. This non-cooperative surveillance system detects and monitors traffic movements on the airport surface providing radar-like target information.
"Lumenera's support was exceptional in meeting our quick integration needs," stated Mr. Moodie Cheikh, President, Searidge Technologies. "Lumenera's IP cameras are the perfect complement to Searidge's IntelliDAR system, ultimately increasing the airport's overall safety and seamlessness of its operations."
