Multispectral Technology Advancement Industry Day
The U.S. Army’s Project Manager Soldier Weapons (PM SW) program demonstrated Surface Optics Corporation’s real-time imaging technology at their Hyper Spectral/Multi Spectral Technology Advancement Industry Day on October 24-25 at Picatinny Arsenal, New Jersey. Industry Day invites private companies to learn more about the technology, ask questions, network, and provide insight to advance the current state of the technology in performance (detection, algorithms, range, zoom capability), cost minimization, ruggedization, and manufacturability.
The current MSI Camera has been designed to interface with the current M153 Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station (CROWS).
The US Government has invested in the development of real-time Hyper Spectral/Multi Spectral imaging technology and algorithms to support automated target acquisition of weapons, personnel, and vehicles. Real-time Hyper Spectral/Multi Spectral technology provides a robust capability for the area of target acquisition by utilizing the target’s unique spectral signature to detect and track them on screen, providing users a visual cue for targets of interest which would normally be difficult to see with the naked eye.
