AVIV is a short to mid-range surveillance system designed for perimeter defense and border protection. It is an ideal solution for military installations enabling them to have continuous real-time monitoring of critical assets and perimeters day or night, regardless of weather conditions. The system is mounted on a robust, highly precise pan-tilt unit, equipped with day and night (thermal) cameras. It enables for both day and night observation from remote locations using an intuitive, user-friendly control unit. AVIV easily integrates with additional means of surveillance such as detection fence systems, motion detection radars and Unattended Ground Sensors (UGS). When an intrusion is detected by any of these systems, AVIV automatically focuses on the detection area to provide a real-time video investigation of the intrusion. In addition, AVIV easily integrates with AVIV C2I or it can interface with other C2I/C4I systems.
