HGH has signed a new contract at ADIPEC to protect an offshore oil platform off the North African coast with the SPYNEL IR solution.


Press Release, Abu Dhabi, 15 November 2021: To mark the ADIPEC trade show taking place at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre this week, the security electro-optics expert HGH just announced the signing of a new contract to secure an offshore platform over 360°, with the SPYNEL IR solution. HGH’s latest security innovations for offshore and onshore applications are showcased, including a new Artificial Intelligence module for CYCLOPE software.

Highly vulnerable, isolated in the middle of the ocean, offshore platforms represent a target of choice for terrorism. The major challenge for oil rigs is to be able to speed up their decision making in the event of an unwanted critical situation, while facing harsh weather, extreme temperatures and vibrations. The SPYNEL sensor will be mounted on a high position on the offshore platform, providing a full 360° sea-coverage and a long-range surveillance up to the horizon, day and night.

Among the new features of CYCLOPE software integrated in each SPYNEL sensor, the new Artificial Intelligence feature will be revealed at ADIPEC. This deep learning module enables automatic recognition and classification of all types of detected objects, such as RHIBs, wooden boats, swimmers, UAVs… Thanks to a smart Behaviour Analysis, operators can configure the software so that defined security actions are automatically triggered if abnormal behaviours are detected, or if a boat approaching the rig has an unknown AIS.

Hervé Berthelot, Middle East Business Developer at HGH, exhibiting at ADIPEC said: “SPYNEL panoramic thermal cameras now include the latest imaging technologies offering the best of detection, tracking, identification and classification for unprecedented protection of onshore and offshore facilities.”
