This new Modular Active Range-Gated Camera will fast track the deployment of Active Range-Gated Imaging capability in existing Multi-Spectral Imaging Turrets.
This provides the smallest possible payload to enable its integration in existing Multi-Spectral Imaging Turrets without sacrificing other capabilities.
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, this technology could drastically improve the success rate since the reflective stripes of life vests, or flotation devices, appear like a light beckon when observed with an Active Range-Gated Camera. Furthermore, this 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.
