  4. Live From SPIE DSS 2012: Excelitas Technologies Features High Angular Resolution Laser Irradiance Detector (HARLID™)

    Eric Desfonds, applications engineer at Excelitas Technologies, shows us the HARLID™ (High Angular Resolution Laser Irradiance Detector), which is used in laser warning systems (LWS) to detect multiple incoming laser signals and report their angle-of-arrival (AOA) digitally. He also tells us that the company's C30659-1550E InGaAs APD Preamplifier Receiver Module with higher damage threshold and greater resilience when exposed to higher optical power densities is now available.

  5. Live From SPIE DSS 2012: PD-LD Features Volume-Bragg Grating, Fiber-Coupled Components For Defense, Other Markets

    Tom Deberardine, executive VP of sales at PD-LD, gives us an overview of PD-LD's product lines and capabilities, as well as where they fit into the defense/security/sensing industry. PD-LD is a manufacturer of customized laser products and products based on the company's patented Volume-Bragg Grating (VBG®) technology.

  6. SPIE DSS Steering Committee Member Identifies Industry Trends, Courses Of Interest

    Photonics Online's Ron Grunsby interviews Kevin Harding, SPIE DSS 2012 steering committee member and past president of the society, regarding DSS moving to Baltimore, photonics industry trends, and his opinion on courses of interest at the show.

  7. Live From SPIE DSS 2012: Xenics Presents Versatile Cameras And Modules For A Variety Of Applications

    Bob Grietens, CEO of Xenics, shows us a high-resolution thermal OEM module (XTM-640), a high-resolution SWIR module (XSW-640), and an uncooled InGaAs camera (Bobcat-320-Gated). The two modules can be used in a broad range of applications including thermal security, police surveillance, border security, vision enhancement, camouflage detection, and more. The camera is ideal for applications such as light bulb inspection (which can be seen in the video), laser beam profiling, R&D SWIR, and more.

  8. SPIE Director Explores Trends In Defense, Security, And Sensing At SPIE DSS

    Peter Hallett, director of marketing and industry relations at SPIE, and Ron Grunsby, editor at Photonics Online, talk about current trends in the defense, security, and sensing industry, as well as SPIE moving DSS from Orlando to Baltimore, SPIE's initiatives taken on in the last year, and the organization's initiatives for the future.

  9. SWIR Camera For Applications Requiring Small Size, Weight, And Power (SWaP) Demoed At SPIE DSS

    Bob Jones, business development manager at Sensors Unlimited - Goodrich ISR Systems, shows the GA640C-15 SWIR camera. This camera is ideal for applications involving low-light-level imaging, covert surveillance, multi-laser spotting and tracking, imaging through atmospheric obscurants, integration into unmanned UASs, and handheld and soldier-mounted systems where small size, weight, and power (SWaP) are critical.

  10. Live From SPIE DSS 2012: Canon Sensors, Encoders, And Scanners For Various Applications

    Ron Travis, sales manager at Canon U.S.A., tells us about their SR Series of ultra-miniature optical encoders, laser rotary encoders, laser doppler velocity sensors, and galvano scanners. These products are used in a wide variety of applications such as motion and speed control, robotics, manufacturing equipment, and more.
