HGH Infrared Systems and The Will-Burt Company will be demonstrating their combined efforts in a 360 degree mobile mast situational awareness solution at Modern Day Marine and AUSA. Will-Burt is the producer of the COBRA™, a self-contained, low profile, direct electric drive telescopic mast. The COBRA™ provides a stable, elevated platform for communications antenna and surveillance sensors. It can be mounted on a vehicle, trailer or placed in the field and the extremely low retracted height makes it useful in a variety of applications.

HGH’s Infrared Systems’ IR Revolution™ 360 provides automated intrusion detection and tracking over 360 degree, detecting a vehicle at up to 5km distance. Its fast frame rate and unique panoramic capabilities ensure powerful Wide Area Surveillance (WAS) through visual real-time night and day simultaneous visualization of an unlimited number of targets. With HGH’s IR Revolution™ 360 secured atop the mast, the system provides complete 360 degree perimeter surveillance perfect for covert operations, Special Forces missions or border patrol mobile surveillance.

HGH and Will-Burt will be demonstrating the technology at two upcoming defense industry shows. Modern Day Marine, which takes place September 25-27 in Quantico Virginia at the Marine Corps Base will be the first joint effort. They will also be displaying at the AUSA show at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC October 22-25 this year.
