TSR-1800Search and Rescue
Product Details – Airborne automated thermal search & spotting over ocean & tundra
Search a wider area, faster, at high resolution (eg. at 20 cm resolution: cover 344 km x 360 m (~123km2) per hour @ 180 knots).
The TSR-1800’s automated thermal anomaly detection is made possible by the TABI imager’s high temperature and spatial resolution capabilities. Flying low (~500 m or 1627 feet above ground level) achieves a small ground footprint (20 cm) for each pixel. Flying 150 m or 488’ AGL leads to 6 cm pixels.
Searches can also be conducted at high ground speeds (170-300 knots).
The TSR-1800 automatically adjusts its search parameters every minute based on changing aircraft speeds to optimize target detection.
Wide swath coverage is provided by the imager’s 1800 across-track pixels, meaning that while flying at ~1000’ AGL (12 cm resolution) the imaged track on the ground is ~220 m (722’).
