Obzerv’s Commercially Releases a Modular Active Range-Gated Camera for Airborne Multi-Spectral Imaging Turrets
The identification performances of Obzerv’s land based cameras are second to none and have driven their deployment around the world in mission critical applications. The benefits of integrating an Active Range-Gating Imaging sensor into a Multi-Spectral Imaging Turrets are numerous and would apply to a large number of airborne applications such as but not limited to: Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR), law enforcement, fishery control and monitoring of environmental compliance to regulation, all of which that can now be conducted at safe stand-off ranges. Another notable application for such product is Search and Rescue (SAR). Specifically in the case of Airborne SAR missions at sea, Obzerv’s technology could drastically improve the success rate since the reflective stripes of life vests, or flotation devices, appear like a light beacons when observed with an Active Range-Gated Camera. Furthermore, Obzerv’s technology has the inherent ability to display the difference in reflectivity between camouflage nets and the environment where they are used, an undeniable tactical advantage when performing airborne recon missions.
“We are proud of the integration and miniaturization challenges that have been overcome with the development of this modular camera. Our goal was to deliver the smallest possible payload to enable Active Range-Gated Imaging in existing Multi-Spectral Imaging Turrets without sacrificing any other capabilities, hence providing a net operational advantage to existing products” said Louis Demers CTO & Co-Founder of Obzerv Technologies.
This new Modular Active Range-Gated Camera is the first member of a family of products aimed at facilitating the integration of Active Range-Gated Imaging in Multi-Spectral Imaging Turrets. This new Modular Camera has been installed in the MX-20 multi-sensor, multi-spectral imaging system from L-3 WESCAM.
Obzerv acknowledges the support and contribution of Defense Research and Development Canada (DRDC-Valcartier) for its early vision in regards to the commercialization of Active Range-Gated Imaging technology. DRDC-V’s ongoing commitment toward new domain of applications for Active Range-Gated Imaging has allowed Obzerv to release this new product for Multi-Spectral Imaging Turrets.
