HGH group celebrates 40th anniversary at Eurosatory and unveils new AI tech GAIA
As security and defence show Eurosatory opens its doors, HGH Group celebrates its 40th anniversary on booth G547 (Hall 6) and unveils its new Artificial Intelligence module integrated to the SPYNEL 360° long distance surveillance.
Since its creation in 1982, infrared technology pioneer HGH has established itself on the international scene as a reference when it comes to electro-optical innovation. If innovation is a key value at HGH, the company wants to prove it by unveiling its new Artificial Intelligence algorithm integrated to CYCLOPE video analytics software for intrusion detection, tracking and identification.
The newest GAIA™ Artificial Intelligence processing features unique capabilities in the market in terms of automatic classification of objects within panoramic thermal images. The AI module makes use of three patent-pending neuronal networks designed to recognise patterns for maritime, land and air surveillance applications. The automatic classification is operational at long-distance, on a very wide range of land and sea targets, from just a few pixels to very large objects. The unique combination of GAIA™ Artificial Intelligence with Cyclope video analytics provides advanced and early detection, tracking and classification of any kind of threats. Whilst the use of AI drastically lowers false alarm rate for wide area surveillance applications, it also simplifies the daily operations for the user.
Additionally, GAIA™ Artificial Intelligence is boosted by the I2QTM image-processing library, enabling superior day/night image quality whatever the environmental conditions. I2QTM image processing includes multiple algorithms dedicated to operator experience improvement such as sun glint reduction, smart denoising, local contrast image enhancement and more.
Automatic recognition and classification of security system data
“The integration of Artificial Intelligence into long-range surveillance systems is a key innovation for the defence and security sectors. It enables automatic recognition and classification of the data acquired by security systems with unprecedented performance and image quality. Applied to video analysis, it equips security teams with increased situational awareness allowing greater responsiveness and effectiveness in their decision,” said Edouard Campana, Wide Area Surveillance Business Unit Manager at HGH.
To provide automatic classification of naval or land targets, the CYCLOPE software now uses AI to recognise the shapes of objects. Among the promises evoked by the company, such a technology makes it possible to reduce the false alarm rate, to react more quickly to a threat, to improve human decision efficiency while reducing the operational means (security crews on site, for example).
As thousands of visitors prepare to enter renowned defence and security tradeshow Eurosatory, HGH Group is ready to showcase its latest innovation, designed for all defence applications, as well as critical infrastructure surveillance and border protection.
