Sentry View Systems, a security and surveillance solutions provider headquartered in Melbourne, FL, has revealed two integrated systems designed to improve remote sensing and surveillance capabilities. Surveillance and power management systems, the SentryPOINT-HD and the SentryPOWER APM-H, were released at the 2012 ISC West in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The SentryPOWER APM-H (Advanced Power Module – Hybrid) is an intelligent reporting and power management SCADA system that uses several power generating sources such as the SentryPOWER-PV, the SentryPOWER-SVT, generators, grid-based power and fuel cells to charge battery storage banks. Furthermore, the monitoring and reporting capability of the on-board processor uses an IP based communications port to provide operators with situational awareness pertaining to the health of the remotely powered systems. The SentryPOWER APM-H is ideal for modern surveillance technologies including radars, thermal imagers, radio communications gear and long-range cameras which require reliable and clean power.
The SentryPOINT-HD (Portable Observation and Integrated Network Trailer – Heavy Duty) is a portable surveillance trailer system that draws power from optional wind turbines, renewable solar cells, traditional generators or clean fuel cell to power radars, cameras and communication systems. The retractable system features an inbuilt telescoping mast that enables users to achieve wider observation distance ranges. The SentryPOINT-HD offers a high degree of mobility and can be easily repositioned as demanded by the changing situational or tactical requirements.
The Chief Executive Officer of Sentry View, John Glover explained that the technologies are an upgraded version of earlier generation SentryPOWER and SentryPOINT systems developed by Sentry View. The enhanced solutions offer end-user customers with solutions that can withstand challenging surveillance environments and assignments.
