As defence and security event DSEI 2023 braces to open its doors next week, advanced IR and laser developer SCD is putting the final touches on the range of advanced solutions it will highlight for visitors. Solutions on display will include:
- The SWIFT-EI short-wave IR (SWIR) detector integrates event-based imaging capabilities for 24/7 situational awareness, offering advanced FPA-level detection and two parallel video channels in a single sensor: standard imaging SWIR and very high frame event imaging;
- The Crane 5-micron, 5 mega-pixel IR detector aimed at EO/IR applications provides persistent surveillance from cost-effective tactical platforms such as UAS, drones, and other airborne platforms;
- The Sparrow family of medium-wave IR (MWIR) video engines, already in widespread use in tactical EO/IR applications, responds to the increasing demand for low size, weight and power consumption (SWaP) characteristics and are designed to cater to the evolving needs of a variety of demanding operators.
“In today’s dynamic battlefield landscape, characterised by precision, versatility, and real-time situational awareness, SCD’s latest innovations [empower] tactical forces with unmatched functionality, [such] as laser source detection, Hostile Fire Indication (HFI), and more, ensuring augmented combat effectiveness,” said Shai Fishbeing, SCD’s VP Business Development & Marketing. “These innovations not only fulfill the demands of the modern battlefield, but also redefine the potential of infrared technology in defence and beyond”.
