Carl Zeiss Receives Order, Licenses Technique

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
To meet immediate deployment requirements, the German army has ordered panoramic reconnaissance and surveillance systems from Carl Zeiss Optronics GmbH of Oberkochen, Germany, for use in protecting forward operating bases (FOBs) in northern Afghanistan. The systems will facilitate the protection of not only the FOBs’ immediate surroundings, but also of an area over several kilometers. They consist of high-resolution daylight target observation and thermal imaging cameras as well as a system for situation reports. The optronics company is the defense and security branch of Carl Zeiss AG.

In other news, Carl Zeiss of Jena, Germany, has received a license from the University of California, San Francisco, for the commercialization of multidirectional selective plane illumination microscopy (mSPIM), an illumination technique for light-sheet fluorescence microscopy for live imaging of fluorescently labeled specimens up to millimeters in size. Specimens can be imaged for days under certain physiological conditions and with minimum photodamage. The agreement grants Carl Zeiss the right to integrate mSPIM technology with its existing and future microscopy systems.
