Moog Imaging System to Protect Overseas Facilities

16 June 2014

Northbrook, IL – Moog Inc., a designer and maker of high-performance sensor and surveillance systems, has provided the U.S. Department of State an around-the-clock imaging system for overseas facilities to detect terrorist and security threats in low-light and night-time conditions. The Moog imaging system helps the State Department upgrade security at its overseas facilities and protect employees from threats.

Moog developed the rugged imaging system, which includes a positioner, night vision technology, camera, sensors, illuminator and search light, specifically for the State Department’s needs. The Moog imaging system recognizes and identifies threats that are impossible to see with thermal sensors and conventional surveillance tools.

“We engineered this system for the State Department and ensured it could stand up to the toughest environments,” said Nicholas Naioti, Moog director of sales for North America.

For example, the State Department’s requirements included a high-power spotlight that Moog identified and integrated with its imaging system. Moog also tapped its defense industry experts to provide an illuminator and hybrid lens capability, which gives security staff a way to easily adjust their field of view as conditions change.

“We’re giving the State Department a way to extend its field of vision, which means more time to react to threats,” added Naioti.
