This application note reviews a number of precision optics suitable for military applications, including corner cube retro-reflectors, integrator rods, mirrors, windows, and cube beamsplitters, as well as a wide variety of prisms.  Continue Reading..
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
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..

A compact, VHP resistant remote particle counter.
As part of a facility monitoring solution, the IsoAir® Pro-E Remote Particle Counter from Particle Measuring Systems (PMS) is an effective piece of a Contamination Control Strategy using the latest technologies to streamline cleanroom monitoring while meeting global regulations including EU GMP Annex 1, ISO 14644-2, and part of a 21CFR Part 11 solution. This remote particle counter has all the features you need for reliable particle monitoring in your clean area are built into a simple but powerful package.

 

AR Modular RF's Amplifier Modules provide the versatility, performance, and durability that continue to make AR a leader in the field and one of the world’s most trusted brands.

The R&S®CMP200 is an IF tester that combines vector signal analyzer and ARB-based generator functionality. The compact integrated solution can be customized with up to three R&S®CMPHEAD30 remote radio heads (RRH) for up/downconverting signals to 5G FR2 frequencies.

DCS® Liquid was specifically developed for toxic and corrosive liquids, achieving containment levels of < 1 ppb. The safe and contained emptying and filling of drums is thus made possible without additional precautions, such as full protective clothing or large laminar airflow booths.

Remove muddy water, sludge and grey water or transfer solid-laden liquids with this diesel-powered centrifugal pump.

Nordson MEDICAL is a pioneer and innovator in the design, development, and manufacturing of medical tubing, with decades of experience. We have the broadest, most versatile medical tubing line in the industry. From simple medical tubing to complex, tight-tolerance extruded tubing in a wide range of materials including polyimide tubing, we can meet your needs.

High-Frequency, Low-Loss flexible cables from A.H. Systems are the preferred choice over standard cable types. With improved power handling, low VSWR, and high frequency capabilities, the Low-Loss cables can be made to your specified length and delivered in two days. 

With OpenFlows FlowMaster, engineers can solve for any unknown property, design for any desired characteristic, and produce detailed reports and rating curves on the fly. OpenFlows FlowMaster’s flexible interface lets users work on multiple projects simultaneously, organize their worksheets in folders, and save them for future use. The software also enables users to configure toolbars and dock windows to create work environments that match their workflows.

MILITARY & DEFENSE VIDEOS

  • Telops has responded to the request of their customers for a smaller version of their Hyper-Cam hyperspectral camera and has miniaturized it enough so that it can be integrated into smaller systems and packages.

  • Craig Taylor with Qioptiq, an Excelitas Technologies Company spent some time with us on day two of the DSS exhibition to give us an overview of some of his division’s work in optical modules and systems used in the aerospace and defense markets. He then turns it over to Eric Desfonds with Excelitas so he could catch us up on some of their more recent product developments, including their newly launched N-type quadrant detectors.

  • Technology involving military and industrial imaging applications is prevalent at DSS this year, and Sensors Unlimited's was no exception. Check out the video to hear Bob Jones talk about two newer SWIR cameras for these two market segments, and what makes them a fit for each.

  • In this video, Precision Optics Corp president Joe Forkey gives us a brief overview of his company and then gives us a closer look at some of the things they featured at their Photonics West booth. 

  • In this video, Jim Hooker, from L-3 Applied Optics Center, gives us an overview of his company and their capabilities.

  • Vincent Farley with Telops gives us an overview of the Hyper-Cam Hyperspectral Imaging System and its role in defense and security related applications such as standoff chemical detection and identification, characterization of rockets, missiles, and flares, and more.

  • Eric Desfonds with Excelitas runs us through their offerings displayed at SPIE DSS 2013.
