British company Thermoteknix (Hall 4, Stand 100) is highlighting its FuseIR Fused Night Vision Technology Demonstrator at Indo Defence 2016.
FuseIR is said by the company to offer superior detection and identification capabilities in a compact and lightweight package.
Handheld/helmet-mounted FuseIR combines image intensification (I2) with thermal imaging. The fusion of the two technologies (Fused Night Vision) goes beyond capabilities of separate I2 and thermal imaging devices to enable detection and identification of targets in all conditions including low light, complete darkness, dense cloud coverage, heavy forest/jungle, inside buildings, in fog/smoke, as well as in brightly lit urban environments or though glass.
FuseIR is based on the latest generation, high sensitivity and high frequency responsive intensifier tube combined with a Thermoteknix MicroCAM 3 thermal imaging core. It is the only enhanced night vision device with Thermoteknix patented Shutterless XTI technology so has no moving parts, is silent in operation and is ‘Never Blind’.
FuseIR’s 40º FOV matches the optimum for goggle usage with real-time image update that avoids image lag and nausea, which can occur with other devices that have slower frame rates/ integration time.
