CST’s surveillance systems combine daylight and thermal cameras to deliver full visibility day and night.

With digital picture stabilization, heat haze reduction and Advanced Contrast Enhancement (ACE)*, CST delivers clear and stable images in all environments.

*ACE: Clear visibility in fog and smoke

Our long-range surveillance cameras are also available as open frame solutions and are designed to make it easy for system integrators to integrate CST high-end cameras in large systems for surveillance, security, defense or other entities.

The open frame cameras entail sensor, optics and camera controller, for our customers to easily integrate in their own EO-system. The open frame cameras are within the visible band, to operate during day and down to half moonlight conditions and are operational at temperatures ranging from -40°C to +70°C.

Copenhagen Sensor Technology A/S (CST) is proud to announce that we once again have been chosen by Leonardo DRS in the United States, as supplier of electro-optical solutions for its vehicle systems.
CST applies protection to combat, defense or security tasks. Strategically mounted situational awareness cameras save civilian lives and increases security for the crew. The CITADEL situational awareness cameras for CST can also be used as driver’s vision enhancement (DVE), 360° Local Situational Awareness (LSAS), and are available in many different configurations. All CITADEL cameras are designed to deliver high-performance images, even under the harshest shock and vibration conditions of metal tracked or wheeled vehicles, and in temperatures ranging from -40°C to +70°C.
Providing increased safety for the entire vehicle crew of armoured vehicles is of prime importance on the battlefield. Mounting several wide-angle cameras on strategic positions on the vehicle provides an unobstructed view over the near surroundings, with all hatches closed.
CST and Leonardo DRS have a long history of collaboration, and that is why CST has been chosen to provide electro-optical sensor solutions from our CITADEL series to their vehicle systems.
