Enhance Defense And Protection With Rugged Vision Systems
Canon CMOS sensors offer unique performance for next-generation defense solutions.  Continue Reading..
Using Thermal Camera Cores For Reconnaissance Robots
Reconnaissance robots are controlled remotely, which allows for access into normally inaccessible sites and reduces risks for users. The FENIX from PIAP is a light reconnaissance robot designed for detecting threats, and can observe, lift, and neutralize dangerous loads, and transport sabotage equipment.  Continue Reading..
Solving 360° Perimeter Security
With an increase in global conflicts and threats, perimeter security and protection of critical infrastructures, borders, harbors, and other territories is vital. Xenics’ 360° surveillance system is an efficient and cost-friendly monitoring solution to keep properties safe, day and night.  Continue Reading..
Solving A Difficult Military Beam Alignment Task
Solving A Difficult Military Beam Alignment Task
Laser systems used in the periscope of a nuclear-powered submarine providing on-board instrumentation that offers accurate pitch, yaw, and roll data. As a result of the critical nature of this information, the burden is placed on the quality of the laser beam, its size, its shape, and its intensity.   Continue Reading..
Defense Applications For SWIR InGaAs Cameras
The SWIR InGaAs camera is an ideal option for many defense applications due to key performance features such as an uncooled, small, lightweight design, sensitivity to nightglow, and attached covert eye-safe lasers. Unlike LWIR and MWIR imagers, SWIR imagers are able to see reflected light, and can offer close representations of what is seen in the visible spectrum. This application note provides an overview on many applications that SWIR InGaAs...  Continue Reading..

Designing A New Optical Projection Device For Military Pilots
When the Department of Defense decided its landscape flight simulators to train pilots required too large a display, too large an enclosure space, and felt a bit antiquated in general, the DoD looked for a helmet –mounted simulation solution to replace the traditional rear-projection screens they were using.  Continue Reading..
Daylight/IR Image Fusion
Visionary Developments In Military And Defence Surveillance
Sight is the most advanced and dominant human sense, and it is estimated that 25% of the brain is dedicated to the processing of images. The brain even prefers to ‘visualise’ problems and see information pictorially, as vision is so central to the way in which the world is perceived. By Steve Parker, PhD, and Fan Wu, PhD, RFEL  Continue Reading..

Electrostatic discharge testing is utilized worldwide by electronics manufacturers to determine the ESD susceptibility of their devices. It is extremely difficult to estimate the exact cost of ESD loss annually, but it can safely be stated that ESD requires the development and testing of many hardware prototypes and contributes to a high number of warranty claims and loss of consumer confidence if failure occurs in the hands of the customer. Given the high cost in time and materials associated with ESD hardware testing, the ability to simulate the ESD testing process in XFdtd is extremely valuable, allowing engineers to pinpoint locations susceptible to ESD damage and optimize ESD mitigation during the concept and design stage of product development.

BIOSTAT STR® single-use bioreactors and the BIOBRAIN automation platform are engineered to allow you to rapidly adapt your biomanufacturing facility to address changing requirements by offering multiple configurations and convenient software upgrades. The generation 3 system is now available with native DeltaV™ and access to our best in class BioPAT® toolbox.

Spatial Light Modulators (SLM) are used as adaptive optical elements that modulates light spatially in amplitude or phase. Laser Components offers these devices based on either reflective (LCOS) or translucent (LCD) liquid crystal microdisplays.

There is only one labeling solution dedicated to the medical device industry. It was designed in conjunction with industry leaders and customer user groups including Boston Scientific, Zimmer and Stryker.

Our international service engineers provide customers with a rapid response to both planned and unplanned maintenance visits. In addition, we offer preventative maintenance contracts tailored to customer needs.

OSI Optoelectronics offers an array of inversion channel series and planar diffused UV enhanced photodiodes designed to be generally sensitive between 200 to 1100 nm. These photodiodes exhibit low dark current and are typically packaged with a quartz or UV transmissive glass window. They can also be reverse biased for lower capacitance and faster rise time performance.

The OPTISONIC 3400 is a 3-path ultrasonic inline flowmeter designed for a wide range of standard or more demanding process applications with homogeneous, non-viscous aqueous liquids as well as viscous fluids of up to over 1000 cSt. It is also the perfect choice for applications with cryogenic products (as low as -200°C / -328°F), media with extended temperature ranges (up to +250°C / +482°F) as well as low or extreme pressure ratings. The OPTISONIC 3400 offers a broad range of diameters – from DN25 / 1" for dosing purposes to DN3000 / 120" for water transportation pipelines.
