Looking through the fog in HD resolution with cost effective visible camera solution

See Through the Fog with Cost Effective Solutions for Defense and Security Applications from Adimec:  HD Doesn’t have to be High Cost

SWIR and infrared cameras enable "sight" in difficult situations for the human eye.  But these solutions offer low resolutions and a SWIR camera can cost 4 to 5 times more than a "normal" visible camera.  During last week's SPIE Defense, Security and Sensing event in Orlando, FL, Adimec showed our VEM technology and our new rugged camera platform.  This technololgy enables contrast enhancement using visible cameras with high resolution (e.g HDTV) to obtain clear images despite environmental issues such as fog, mist, or low light.  The combination of high resolution and the ability to see clearly in difficult circumstances significantly improves the possibilities for detection, recognition, and identification in situational awareness and HD designator systems.

That’s why Adimec’s  “See Through the Fog” demo really struck a chord:

In-camera Video Contrast Enhancement To See Through the Fog

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Wed, Apr 27, 2011

Adimec’s Video Contrast Enhancement Module (VEM) automatically improves performance and accuracy in low contrast conditions.  This capability addresses a limitation in off-the-shelf CCD sensors which do not perform well in low contrast conditions.  It is especially useful in applications such as outdoor/defense (where environmental issues present challenges, particularly in long-range observation) and metrology/inspection (where low-contrast materials impede accuracy).
