FLIR Thermal Imaging Cameras Monitor Stress Levels Of Helicopter Pilots

Italian helicopter manufacturer Leonardo wanted a reliable and objective way to measure the stress that pilots experience, so they would be able to design more functional cockpits and train helicopter pilots more efficiently. 

To Stay Ahead In Spectroscopy, Watch New Technologies

People working in spectroscopy must keep up with other technologies that will affect their own practice.

The Seductive Siren Call Of The “Megapixel Lens” (And Why You Shouldn’t Listen To It)

In response to the popularity of megapixel cameras and sensors, many lens manufacturers are marketing "megapixel lenses." The problem? There's no such thing.

Enhance Defense And Protection With Rugged Vision Systems

Canon CMOS sensors offer unique performance for next-generation defense solutions.

Laser Illumination For High-Speed Imaging

An incorrect or poorly lit subject affects the image, regardless of camera system quality. Therefore, the illumination source is just as important as the camera's resolution and sensitivity. See how a laser can be used for illumination in these four high-speed imaging application examples.

Sharp Cut And IR Filters: W-ND Series

HOYA offers the W-ND series of sharp cut and IR filters to meet the requirements of the world standard. Typical dimensions include 50 mm square (polished) and 165 mm square (polished and unpolished). Custom sizes and thickness are available, and a range of coatings can be applied. 

Optical Thin Film Coatings Provide Safer Flight Conditions

Specialized thin film optical coatings are currently being designed into customized displays that serve to modify the viewing angle and eliminate unwanted stray light that would otherwise distract the pilot(s) and crew in commercial and military aircraft cockpits.
