Chess Dynamics brings together a comprehensive range of pan and tilt platforms with complimentary sensor and control products, conveniently packaged as CS3 systems (Configurable Security Surveillance Solutions). This provides high performance configurable solutions meeting the demands of ever increasing security. Chess will undertake payload layout design to optimise performance and style, manufacture mounting brackets, supports and covers along with many other optional accessories providing a cost effective turnkey solution.

All systems can be configured for use in the following applications:

  • Ground - fixed installations/ portable surveillance
  • Marine - commercial ships/ oilrigs/ naval warships
  • Vehicles - situational awareness/ weapon control

Automatic Target Detection

The Spyder Electro-Optical Director (EOD) has been developed to include real-time 360º situational awareness providing detection, recognition and automatic identification of targets.

Its key features include:

  • Automatic target detection
  • Intuitive touch screen user interface
  • Interactive panoramic image display
  • Picture in picture high resolution steerable optical sensors

Spyder is a direct drive high performance Servo EOD platform offering full zoom for long-range target recognition and identification. The options of user selected or automatic target tracking can be defined, along with a configurable optical sensor interface (IR, TV, LRF +++). Gyro stabilised options are also available.

Military Surveillance

The Zeta Optical Tracking Director is a very rugged, geared director that is ideally suited for military surveillance and security applications. With no effective backlash, this director offers large payload carrying capability and performance for vehicle and shipborne applications.


High Sensitivity Detection

The Piranha range of colour TV cameras and marine cameras are ideally suited for video tracking and video surveillance applications.

Chess have also launched the Piranha IR, a small, uncooled thermal imager to complement our range of daylight colour cameras. This contains the industry's most advanced on-focal plane signal processing DSP-based electronics, and real-time algorithms that combine with a fully optimised 324 x 256 pixel focal plane array to deliver image quality that is visually comparable to larger arrays. As a result the Piranha IR can utilise higher f-number optics, minimising both weight and cost.less
