Silent Sentinel will provide 50 Jaegar Ranger 225 LWIR thermal cameras, which will be deployed along a Central Asian border spanning several hundred kilometres. The Jaegar’s unique through-shaft allows a radar to sit above the PTU enabling uninterrupted 360° continuous rotation ideal for detection and tracking applications. For this particular application the customer requested a custom dark green colour befitting the surroundings of the installations, and Silent Sentinel are able to offer numerous colour schemes across most of their range to suit a wide variety of terrains and environments.

The Jaegar Ranger 225 is one of Silent Sentinel’s popular camera platforms, formed of a long-range thermal sensor and HD visible sensor with the thermal camera capable of detecting human threats up to 5km away, with a ruggedised IP67 housing to ensure optimum performance even in high-altitude conditions with volatile climates. The Jaegar provides high levels of camera positioning accuracy (0.0002°), as well as absolute feedback and   rapid pan and tilt speeds making it ideally suited for the long-range detection of individuals and vehicles.

Once global travel resumes, Silent Sentinel will be travelling to the country to provide advanced, embedded training. However, as these systems have been installed during the first phase of the contract, Silent Sentinel has provided remote guidance and instruction.

James Longcroft of Silent Sentinel said: “We are pleased to provide our advanced camera platform for enhanced national security capabilities globally. The Jaegar’s unique capabilities across all terrains make it the leading camera platform for long-range early threat detection. We look forward to building our footprint in the region as we prove our suitability for this vital work.”
