This hardware is provided for applications relating to physical environments, practical specifications or considerations.
The cameras are fixed and equipped with optics to suit the application. To ensure reliable resolution, 4 cameras are typically deployed for a helideck entailing:
Detection camera specifications:
- Onshore, offshore, or petrochemical environments
- IP66 and/or ATEX/IECEx certified for hazardous environments
- Embedded/Edge video analytics or centralized video analytics
Laser scanner – for special applications:
- Onshore, marine, or petrochemical environments
- IP66 (not suitable for hazardous environments)
- Embedded/Edge detection analytics
The purpose of the camera station is to monitor the area around the defined field and initiate an alarm in the event of birds approaching the specified area. The quality of applications deployed with local edge technology for video analytics is ensured by high-end camera modules and clear imaging even in low-light conditions. High sensitivity combined with Content-Based Imaging Technology (CBIT) ensure clear, crisp, and detailed images. The intelligent noise reduction reduces bandwidth requirements by up to 50%.
Reliable monitoring and quality imaging are governed by a high resolution up to 50 fps.
During an alarming situation (bird categorized as potentially landing in the defined area), the intelligent video analysis provides awareness to the BDS Controller/CPU of an alarm situation, which then initiates the scare stimulus.

This is governed by the embedded edge intelligent video analytics (IVA) algorithm, performing multi-level image analysis of pixel, texture, and motion content. IVA tracks the trajectory (speed and direction) of all objects and captures data of everything that happens within the specified area. Content analysis information, in the form of metadata, is generated and contains details of all objects within, entering, or leaving the specified area.
Where centralized video analytics is applicable, miniature cameras can be deployed, ensuring swift installations in areas with limited physical installation options.
With only Ø55 mm, this explosion proof camera station can be installed practically anywhere.
