Ballistic Range Camera
Aug 2010Specialised Imaging Inc.Request Info
The SIR3 ballistic range camera from Specialised Imaging Ltd.
is a new generation of ultrahigh-speed camera designed to withstand the harsh environment
of the proofing ground and to provide high reliability and image quality. New features
include an optical viewfinder to ease image focus and framing while still maintaining
the possibility of electronic focusing via an external thin-film transistor monitor
and simplified focus button. Using the input from two separate sensors, SureShot
real-time hardware enables reliable image capture of unpredictable high-speed objects
mid frame. This advance in trigger reliability also enables researchers to narrow
the field of view of the camera, thereby increasing the resolution. In addition,
it can acquire two separate full-resolution images, providing valuable information
on displacement and velocity for ballistics, detonics and impact studies. The rigid
all-metal IP54-compliant construction of the compact camera makes it suited to withstand
harsh industrial and defense research environments.
