Obzerv Technologies Wins Canadian Defense Contract
Quebec City-based Obzerv Technologies Inc. has announced a contract with Defense Research and Development Canada as part of a tactical surveillance project. Under the contract, which is valued at $650,000 (CAD), Obzerv will develop and integrate an active-range-gated camera into an L-3 Wescam MX-20 multispectral imaging turret. The company’s Dalis laser source illuminator enables night-vision cameras to enhance their long-range identification ability.
- A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
- The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
