The General Dynamics VZ-750 is an integrated long-range electro-
optical/ infrared (EO/IR) multi-sensor system designed, fielded,
and proven for the border security mission. Featuring a proprietary,
ruggedized design and cooled sensor technology, the VZ-750 captures
precise target signatures in Mid-Wave IR, day or night and in colour
during daylight and transition. The system is capable of detecting
man-sized targets at over 20 kilometres in IR and the high definition
EO camera offers demonstrated capability to read license plates and
recognize faces at 1.6Km and beyond. IOIs are illuminated using the
optional laser illuminator or spotlight, or ranged with the integrated LRF.
This system is ideal for surveillance and reconnaissance in ground-
based defence and homeland security missions requiring maximum
detection distance day and night. Integration is simplified with the built
in IP interface and interoperability with VMS and analytics systems.
Image transport and system control are over Ethernet for simple
infrastructure integration. The system is deployed in critical 24/7
missions for border security. The GD VZ-750 family has proven its
value, utility and reliability, serving worldwide. This configuration
builds on its trusted ancestry with a more capable HD EO sensor
and lens, and purpose built integrated peripherals. The VZ-750
includes an integrated precision 2 axis positioning system with high
reliability direct drive architecture. IR, EO, LRF, and illuminators are
integrated, interoperable and bore sighted for the application.
General Dynamics Mission Systems designs and manufactures a
full portfolio of high-performance cameras and camera systems that
provide our customers the clarity, accuracy and reliability to capture
the shot that matters and successfully complete their mission.
