lot 5: heart beat detectors (HBD).
Handheld thermal cameras
Frontex premises, Plac Europejski 6, 00-855 Warsaw, POLAND.
— Required thermal cameras shall be handheld, uncooled thermal imagers having binocular output image projector used to generate image seen by 2 eyes of the user.
— The cameras should enable medium range surveillance capabilities during foot or vehicle patrols at European climatic conditions.
— The cameras shall be delivered in form of a set: camera body, 2 sets of batteries, battery power supply, service/cleaning set, transport case.
— Thermal cameras shall be of low mass and of ergonomic design for handheld operation.
— Estimated time of work during warranty period is about 4 hours per day.
After the initial duration of 2 years the framework contract shall be automatically renewed no more than once, for another period of 2 years and on the same conditions.
Frontex reserves the right to conduct exceptional negotiated procedure based on Article 134.1(e) of Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1268/2012 of 29.10.2012 (RAP) to increase the ceiling, if such a need occurs.
Night vision goggles
— Required night vision devices shall be the monocular night vision goggles of wide FOV over 38º having single optical objective, single image intensifier but 2 oculars. The goggles should enable short range surveillance capabilities during foot or vehicle patrols at European climatic conditions.
— The NVG shall provide the high-quality image of scenery at typical EU night conditions comparable to image quality obtained by naked eye at day conditions.
— The NVG shall have built-in image intensifier tubes of standard mechanical dimensions and standard electrical power supply. Tubes of non-standard dimensions/voltage are not accepted.
— The NVG shall be of low mass, ergonomic design with possibility to be attached to the head. Face mask is required.
Night vision binoculars
— Required night vision binoculars shall be monocular night vision devices of having single optical objective, single image intensifier but 2 oculars. The binoculars should enable short to middle range surveillance capabilities during foot or vehicle patrols at European climatic conditions.
— The night vision binoculars shall provide the high-quality image of scenery at typical EU night conditions comparable to image quality obtained by naked eye at day conditions.
— The night vision binoculars must be built using image intensifier tubes of standard mechanical dimensions and standard electrical power supply. Tubes of non-standard dimensions/voltage are not accepted.
— The night vision binoculars shall be of low mass, ergonomic design with possibility to be attached to the head.
— Practically all the technical, functional and environmental protection requirements for the night vision goggles are applicable for the binoculars, however in addition, to the set of NVG the tenderer is required to provide additional objective with magnification x3 to be included in the carrying case.
— The objective x3 shall be quickly and easily attachable to the body of the NVG in the field environment.
— The device with attached objective shall comply with the environmental protection as stipulated in point 5.3.5 of this document.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) detectors
The carbon dioxide (CO2) detectors shall be used for the measurement of the existing CO2 concentration in a closed volume for the detection of people hiding in confined spaces such as trailers, rooms and vehicles (monitoring the CO2 concentration of human exhaled air).
The carbon dioxide detector kit shall contain the following accessories:
— durable carrying case,
— carrying strap,
— rubber shock protection sleeve,
— set audio headphones,
— car charging cable (12 V/DC only),
— adapter 220 V/AC,
— IR computer interface and data transfer cable,
— PM-COM software for viewing stored data, including CD,
— sampling probe (hose): possible variants: a) rigid rod with connector or b) hose protected by rigid detachable segments (the segments must be threaded together to prevent them from being loosened or blocked during use); length: min. 1,5 m,
— filter with dust and water hose,
— reading stand and mounting clip,
— calibration/sampling adapter.
Heart beat detectors
The heartbeat detector needs to enable precise detection of human beings hidden in stationary vehicles (regardless their tonnage) under border crossing conditions where constant frequency of vehicles is present (vibrations of the base due to vehicles crossing) which will not affect the operation and the accuracy of the results produced by the heartbeat detector.
Heartbeat detector kit (system) shall contain:
— ruggedised laptop (resistant to mechanical shocks), with pre-installed specialised applications (software for heartbeat detection) with colour touch screen, size diagonally minimum 12" (inches),
— laptop carrying case and rechargeable cable,
— system sensors (protected from environmental factors — frost, rain, hail, etc.) and related accessories for mounting on metallic or plastic elements of the vehicle,
— related cables, 2 USB connectors and suitable connectors for 4 sensors (including sensor control module, if necessary) as well as a possibility to connect keyboard and mouse,
— rechargeable accumulators device,
— system carrying case, with partitioned housing for storing and transporting system components. The carrying case shall be impact and humidity resistant and large enough to store the heartbeat kit and all of its components,
— complete documentation and manual for use, media and print, in English as a minimum,
— 4 vibration (seismic) sensors and 1 additional spare sensor:
• minimum IP 54 protection,
• waterproof electric connectors (minimum IP 5 for water protection),
• sensor — computer connecting cables that are suitable for the outside work. Minimum 15 m length.
