Long-Range Cameras for Demanding Environments

Copenhagen Sensor Technology A/S (CST) based in Herlev, Denmark, promotes a complete family of ruggedised cameras named SPECTREL. They consist of a high-performance zoom lens, high-sensitivity CCD (Charge-Coupled Device) camera, and control hardware for operating in the visible spectrum. A special Extended Night Mode allows imaging under low-light conditions.
SPECTREL stays on target when zooming in on an object of interest – commonly referred to as bore-sight retention, where SPECTREL has a bore-sight retention within 0,2mrad (= 20cm precision at 1,000m distance). The cameras recognise a human at 8,000m, with more features such as fog/haze penetration, Autofocus-on-Demand, and graphical overlay. Additionally, the cameras endure temperatures ranging from -40°C to 70°C, and have a protective sealed housing to withstand high moisture and extremely high shock and vibration.
A new product showcased at the recent DSEi Exhibition in London is the SWIR Zoom Camera that has been designed for demanding environments, making it a perfect choice for military and security applications. SWIR (Short Wave IR) technology is used to increase visibility by enabling the device to see through fog, haze, and smoke. The technology can be used in conjunction with an laser illuminator laser (1,5µm) that is invisible to the human eye.
CST is a global market leader for EO cameras, with the products sold through a worldwide distributor network. CST is characterised by four core features: easy to integrate (all CST standard products are easy to integrate); ruggedised cameras; reliability; and flexibility.
