SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 6, 2011 — LumaSense Technologies Inc., a maker of temperature and gas sensing products, announced it has acquired Buellton, Calif.-based InfraredVision Technology Corp. (ITC) from L-3 Communications. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

ITC produces vanadium oxide microbolometer detectors, used in thermal imaging systems such as infrared cameras. LumaSense, which currently provides temperature- and emissions-monitoring sensors and cameras to the energy, industrial and clean technology markets, said the acquisition will allow it to expand its offerings into areas such as public safety, with specialized applications including security, traffic control and firefighting.

LumaSense said it will retain all of ITC's employees, who will remain based at the company's Buellton facilities.

"Welcoming ITC gives us greater flexibility and control in designing thermal imaging solutions that meet our customers' individual needs," said Vivek Joshi, LumaSense CEO.

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...
detector
1. A device designed to convert the energy of incident radiation into another form for the determination of the presence of the radiation. The device may function by electrical, photographic or visual means. 2. A device that provides an electric output that is a useful measure of the radiation that is incident on the device.
