Adimec’s latest defense vision technology at SPIE DSS, April 26-29

Adimec’s latest defense and security camera platform brings the right combination of advanced imaging technology, standard functionality, and flexible design for full HD designator and situational awareness systems

The defense industry has strict specifications and procedures, which makes supplying to this market challenging for many companies. And, when defense applications require specific customizations and tailoring, the challenges become even greater.

But not for us. Since 1992, Adimec has established a proven track record of delivering rugged camera solutions for a broad range of demanding imaging systems on land, sea, and air platforms. We understand the requirements for accurate detection, recognition, and identification. Today, we are leading the industry forward to full HD, digital cameras that promise to improve the performance and capabilities needed by modern defense systems.

Now, we are offering the same quick turnaround, customer-specific tailoring of cameras that is available to customers in other markets, to the defense and military industries. At next week’s SPIE Defense, Security  and Sensing event in Orlando, Fla. we’ll demonstrate the industry’s first fully customizable platform that lets defense suppliers choose from and combine a number of camera options, including:

  • Image sensors in CCD or CMOS
  • Up to Full HD (1920x1080) resolution and 30 or 60 frames per second
  • Customized camera housing configurations
  • Full color, monochrome, or near infrared (NIR) capabilities
  • Video enhancement technologies (color processing, contrast enhancement (VEM), automatic white balance, automatic gain control, automatic exposure control)
  • Interfaces (HD-SDI, CameraLink, CoaXPress, GigE Vision, analog)

defense camera platform

The result is the most flexible solution available to system developers who need high-performance, ruggedized and military qualified cameras. We can work with you to test and verify the specific capabilities that meet your needs. Once satisfied, we can ramp up to high volume production quickly, and possibly more importantly, to the stringent production requirements of any military program including test programs. We’ll even guarantee it by 100% extended testing on all specifications. That kind of speed and efficiency had long been sought after by military suppliers, and Adimec is delivering it today.

If you happen to be attending the SPIE DSS show next week, stop by and see this new customization platform in action. We’ll also be showing a “See Through the Fog” demo that showcases our VEM video contrast enhancement technology for high visibility in all types of images.

Adimec will be in Booth #1131 on the exhibition floor. In addition, Marcel Dijkema, Adimec’s Strategic Product Manager, will present a roadmap to Digital full HD for defense vision systems on Tuesday, April 26 at 2:30 PM, in the Cypress Hall Foyer. His talk is titled “Digital HD Rugged Cameras for Enhanced Defense Vision.” Full HD, in combination with Adimec True Accurate Imaging® technology, improves detection, recognition and identification capabilities of situational awareness and designator systems, resulting in decreased operation reaction time.

As vision systems in the defense industry continue to require higher image quality, more cost-effective and flexible solutions, and adherence to tighter security and quality standards, Adimec is well-positioned to maintain our leadership position and deliver optimized camera solutions for a broad range of applications.
