Bosch’s MIC Series thermal imaging cameras secure coastal Alabama
Secure, wireless access to video provided by Crystal Data allows officers to operate cameras and mark recorded data for archiving
Thermal imaging enables 24/7 surveillance even through fog and other airborne obscurants

Cameras withstand harsh conditions to secure coastal Alabama

The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Marine Resources Division is responsible for securing the more than 750 square miles of water that make up Mobile Bay as well as 11,000 square miles in the Gulf of Mexico. With less than 20 officers on patrol, the department required surveillance video of important areas throughout the Bay. The Marine Resources Division sought a portable solution from Bosch that would provide them with reliable surveillance.

Problem: Surveillance images from challenging environments must be accessible to remote staff

  • Strategic locations along Alabama’s 200 miles of coastline require dependable surveillance in light, dark and foggy conditions
  • Sites face humidity, high temperatures and corrosive salt water
  • Officers need to access video while on patrol, from any location

Solution: MIC Series cameras feed a coastal remote monitoring System

  • IP68 and NEMA 4X ratings and 6mm thick aluminium housing enable cameras to survive the elements
  • Precision optics deliver outstanding video quality
  • Thermal imaging enables 24/7 surveillance even through fog and other airborne obscurants
  • Secure, wireless access to video provided by Crystal Data allows officers to operate cameras and mark recorded data for archiving

Results: System serves as a force multiplier

  • Wireless access to video increases efficiency of officers on patrol
  • Officers can see events happening in multiple locations whether on a boat, in a car or at the central office
  • Control of pan, tilt and zoom camera functions provides improved situational awareness of events–allowing identification of vessels up to two miles away
