HGH Infrared Systems (Cambridge, MA) has introduced the IR Revolution 360, a 20° vertical, 360° horizontal field of view (FOV) panoramic infrared camera for security and surveillance. The sensor contains approximately 3 million pixels (10,000 × 288).

The detector is based on mercury cadmium telluride (HgCdTe) imaging technology and operates in the 8-12 micron wavelength, the long-wave infrared (LWIR) region. The high sensitivity (<25 mK) IR camera detection range, without image distortion, is up to 1 kilometer (km) for a human figure, up to 1.5 km for an automobile, and up to 6 km for a boat or ship. Other features include auto detection and tracking, a motion alarm, and an area-of-interest zoom. The IR Revolution 360 is housed in a compact, environmentally-sealed case that can easily be mounted.
