As warfare and security scenarios become increasingly complex there is a definitive and growing need to completely identify and characterise the target signature of threats, whatever the environment, viewing distance or relative angular position.

Flytherm is a complete state-of-the-art 4-axis gimbal system capable of hosting a variety of high performance SWIR, MWIR and LWIR focal plane array sensors with real-time storage capabilities and post processing image analysis. Compact in design (350mm diameter) the typical weight of Flytherm may vary between 20 and 30kg allowing its use even with slow-speed planes or small helicopters.

According to Cedip, Flytherm can be tailored to meet the exact needs of each user, with a unique combination of 2 or 3 thermal sensors, collimated along with a visible camera for control purposes. A choice of sensor formats (320x256 and 640x512) and lenses are available to suit the resolution and field of view requirements of different applications. Flytherm can also host multispectral cameras such as the popular ORION camera and depending on the installed payload will readily integrate a wide range of third party instruments.

All communication and digital video data are streamed out to the cabin acquisition system and recorded using the comprehensive, yet intuitive, functionality of Cedip's proprietary SATIR/ALTAIR multi-acquisition signature software.
