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..
