Slovenia border police selects Sagem JIM LR infrared multifunction imager
Paris, Milipol 2009 exhibition, November 18, 2009
Following international bidding within the context of the EU's Schengen programs, Slovenia's Border Police has selected Sagem's (Safran group) JIM LR multifunction infrared imagers.
As part of the bidding process, Slovenia's Border Police tested the JIM LR for one month in open terrain and urban areas. In the face of stiff competition, these tests highlighted JIM LR's effectiveness and confirmed it is well suited to homeland security needs.
Ergonomic and highly integrated, JIM LR provides border protection units with enhanced capabilities: day and night detection and identification of vehicles, boats, light aircraft and pedestrians at a distance of up to several kilometers, intelligence gathering for intervention teams, etc.
JIM LR's open architecture means it can be easily integrated in diversified surveillance systems. Case in point: the JIM LR's ordered by Slovenia will contain remote control terminals produced by the Slovenian company Dat-Con, specialized in homeland security solutions.
JIM LR is built on the combined know-how of Sagem and its Swiss subsidiary Vectronix. It brings together several functions in a tactical and portable housing: day and infrared vision, telemetry, laser pointing, orientation, GPS, data transmission, etc. Several hundred JIM LRs have been ordered and are in use by NATO armies – including the French Army – and by national security forces for protection, intelligence, advanced observation and combat support missions.
