Seeing Forever: Lockhead Martin's Gyrocam

Press Release
Monday, April 01, 2013

Lockheed Martin recently completed successful demonstrations of its Gyrocam 15-inch Dual Sensor & 15-inch Triple Sensor to the Navy.

The demonstration was conducted as part of a cooperative research and development effort with the Stiletto Maritime Demonstration Program. That program was established to help accelerate the delivery of innovative maritime technologies across all armed services.

During the demonstration in Virginia Beach, Va., U.S. Navy Expeditionary Combat Command (NECC) sailors used the 15-inch gyro-stabilized optical sensors in both day and night exercises. After successfully tracking items of interest and acquiring on-the-move, high-resolution electro-optical and thermal video, end-users provided immediate feedback on the technology.

"Lockheed Martin's 15-inch Gyrocam sensors provided NECC sailors with an elevated, unobstructed, 360-degree surveillance advantage," said Dave Huber , senior program manager at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. "Our Gyrocam sensors can detect and track items of interest beyond line of sight, giving sailors the critical time needed to deploy proper defensive measures."

Gyrocam maritime sensor systems support long-range search-and-rescue, counter-terrorism, drug interdiction, patrol and surveillance operations. Lockheed Martin has extensive experience mounting gyro-stabilized optical sensor systems on maritime craft, ranging from patrol boats to naval frigates. Gyrocam maritime sensor systems have the capability to see through fog, haze and complete darkness.
