The General Dynamics VZ-750 is an integrated long-range electrooptical/ infrared (EO/IR) multi-sensor system designed, fielded, and proven for the border security mission. The VZ-750 is capable of detecting man-sized targets at over 20 kilometers in IR and the high definition EO camera offers demonstrated capability to read license plates and recognize faces at 1.6Km and beyond. This system is ideal for surveillance and reconnaissance in ground-based defense and homeland security missions requiring maximum detection distance day and night.

Product Details

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 color during daylight and transition. The system is capable of detecting man-sized targets at over 20 kilometers 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.

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 General Dynamics 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.
