The PIRI (Panoramic Infrared Imaging) is a high-performance Infrared Search and Track system designed for maritime platforms in order to passively detect and track multiple air and surface vehicles and missiles with its staring sensors.

The PIRI is able to observe the perimeter of the maritime vehicle simultaneously in dual-band IR. The large elevation FOV makes the system capable of observing air to surface threats effectively. Display of both MWIR and LWIR spectrum in 360° azimuth as a panoramic image makes PIRI, a comprehensive solution for ships. Distributed Sensor Architecture makes the system modular for any platform.

The PIRI provides 360° coverage thanks to its panoramic view and the use of three sensors mounted on the ship providing passive detection and tracking in all sea-conditions. The system is able to track 150 targets at the same time.

The system will be mounted on the Multi-Purpose Amphibious Assault Ship TCG ANADOLU but also to the Barbaros-Class Frigates and the I-Class Frigate (MILGEM 5) Project.

The Barbaros-class is a class of frigate build for the Turkish navy. Currently, four ships are in service with the naval forces of Turkey. Two ships were built in Germany based on the MEKO 200 frigate design and two in Turkey with German assistance.

The I-class frigate also called Istanbul-class, is a series of frigates developed under the MILGEM, the Turkish national warship program.
