Imaging technology advancing for defense, security

Teledyne imaging components, sub-systems development capabilities are shown at the Latin America Aero and Defense conference.

04/16/2011


Expanding upon industrial sensing and machine vision capabilities, Teledyne Dalsa offers imaging components and sub-systems development capability for defense and security applications including CCD and CMOS UV-VIS-NIR detectors, advanced imaging modules and custom uncooled IR detectors.  Latin America Aero and Defense Brazil 2011 (LAAD) conference was held April 12 – April 15 at the Rio de Janeiro Convention Center. Also at the show, the company discussed UV and X-ray imaging solutions, and the manufacturing of uncooled short-, mid-, and long-wavelength infrared cameras based on a variety of technologies.

Visible (VIS) - Teledyne Dalsa's extensive camera and detector technology platforms, including standard, semi-customized and full custom CMOS and CCD detectors, combine with the latest camera concepts, to deliver advanced low SWAP (Size Weight and Power) solutions for a variety applications. Teledyne Dalsa’s imaging technology offers unmatched combinations of speed, responsivity, and dynamic range with such features such as 8, 10, and 12 bit output, GigE Vision and Camera Link interface standards, and programmability, including multi-megapixel area and line scan as well as high sensitivity line scan (TDI: Time Delay and Integration) technology.

Ultraviolet (UV) – Teledyne Dalsa’s proprietary UV-imaging technology can sense wavelength ranges down to 193 nm. Based on the back-side illuminated detector concept, this technology can be implemented in both high-speed CCD and CMOS technologies.

Near-Infrared Detectors (NIR 650 - 1050 nm) – Teledyne Dalsa offers a range of NIR-sensitive detectors. Proprietary device and process engineering allow for high sensitivity in the 800-1000 nm range, while still maintaining important features such as over exposure control.

Short-, Mid- and Long- Wavelength Infrared Cameras – Teledyne Dalsa has in-house capabilities to deliver camera solutions for SWIR (1050 – 2500 nm), MWIR (3000 - 5000 nm), and LWIR (8000-12000 nm) applications. IR cameras are developed and qualified to the customer’s specification, and based on third party detectors and on Teledyne Dalsa’s camera platforms leveraging extensive experience with temperature stabilization, advanced low power interfaces and “smart” camera technology.
