The observation-systems industry has significantly evolved and grown in recent years. Alongside this growth, we have seen the development of security and surveillance imaging applications with increasingly advanced infrared imaging systems, containing detectors that are larger in size and smaller in pixel size, which present challenges for thermal imaging optical systems. These include low SWaP, lightweight requirements, while maximizing imaging performance in line with detector capabilities, allowing for high resolution vision.
While drones are relatively new additions to the military’s stable of high-tech robotic systems, ground-based robots have been in use for more than a decade. From detecting, defusing, and disposing of explosives to working side-by-side with soldiers in the field, robots have found a myriad of applications within the military. In this webinar we’ll present products case-studies for the drone and UAV commercial and defense markets. The webinar highlights how robotic systems – both airborne and ground-based – are easing the risks and burdens faced by modern warfighters.
