The systems use patented HyperPixel Array technology to release the full information potential of any scene, providing an enhanced data stream, eliminating motion artifacts and maximizing signal-to-noise response. Operating in wavelengths ranging from the visible through the long-wave IR, the systems can interface with any fore optics, from telescope to microscope, the company said.
