Imaging Solutions for Defense and Military Sectors

UAV with camera used in a security application

Defense and military applications require extremely rugged hardware for use in harsh environments. Surveillance tools in the field must be robust, long-lasting and reliable, and an increasing number of unmanned vehicles are being customized for use in the air, on land and underwater. We design and manufacture computer vision solutions, including AF-Zoom cameras and embedded vision systems, for use in a range of aerospace, military and defense environments which meet these stringent requirements.

Embedded systems and cameras for defense and military

Our embedded systems and block cameras with various outputs bring system control and real-time, high-definition video and image transmission to applications including:

  • Video surveillance and remote monitoring
  • Border control and perimeter protection
  • Cockpit Door Surveillance Systems (CDSS)
  • Thermal imaging and infrared imaging
  • Unmanned aerial and underwater vehicles (UAVs, drones and ROVs) and robotics
  • Enhanced situational awareness

Our products are designed to meet various safety, quality and communication standards, as well as being created for long product life – retaining the same fit, form and function for many years.

Products we recommend for use in defense and military

Our Harrier series of compact autofocus-zoom cameras are ideal for a range of surveillance and remote monitoring applications and, with outputs including Ethernet IP, 3G-SDI, HDMI and USB, there’s a suitable camera for any military or defense requirement. Light and compact, the cameras are easy to integrate into drones and ROVs to transmit high-resolution video with little or no latency.

Embedded vision computer

Embedded vision solutions are usually designed for a specific use. The embedded unit shown here is built into a multi-channel surveillance system, operating with seven “situation awareness” cameras that provide a 360° field of view, plus a single high zoom PTZ camera to focus in and record events automatically under the control of video analytics software running on the unit.

Additionally, our sister company, Steatite, also offers a range of ruggedized computing and communication solutions which are designed and certified to military standards and ruggedized for harsh environments.
