Photron Wins Crash Test Innovation Award

Photonics.com
Dec 2007
San Diego-based high-speed imaging system and image analysis software supplier Photron Inc. announced it has been awarded the "Crash Test Innovation of the Year" award from Automotive Testing Technology International for its Fastcam MH4 multihead, high-speed video system (see photo). PhotronFastcam.jpgAutomotive Testing Technology International presented the company with the award last month; finalists were selected from all automotive development and research companies and judged by a panel of eight for several awards. The top seven were honored for contributions made to automotive safety and reliability, usability and driveability. Photron's Fastcam MH4 is a high-G high-speed imaging system that features four camera heads, each less than 1.5-in. cubed, that are connected to a compact DC processor via flexible cables from 3 to 33 feet long, for high-speed imaging in difficult-to-access, confined and hostile environments, such as auto crash tests and military and defense applications.



GLOSSARY
camera
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...
photonics
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...
video
Referring to the bandwidth and spectrum location of the signal produced by television or radar scanning.
