Boulder Imaging System to Record Missile Launch

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
LOUISVILLE, Colo., April 11 -- Boulder Imaging Inc., an image processing and machine vision software company, said it is providing a digital video recording system to Lockheed Martin to test the Army's line-of-sight antitank weapon system (LOSAT) missile. The camera system, stationed on a Hummer military vehicle, will capture 250 megabytes of visual information per second as a LOSAT missile is launched during testing.

The digital recording system features Boulder Imaging's AcquireNow software, which captures and records high-speed data in real time. For the LOSAT missile launch, the system will record the actual video of the missile launch itself and will be used for post-launch analysis.

The transformational LOSAT system consists of kinetic energy missiles and a second-generation FLIR/video acquisition sensor mounted on an air-mobile, heavy Hummer chassis. The kinetic energy missile travels 5,000 feet per second and destroys armored vehicles solely with kinetic energy.
