The compact, lightweight SIR3 sets a new standard for ballistic range testing with its unique ability to acquire two separate full resolution images enabling valuable displacement and velocity information to be determined in ballistic, detonic and impact studies. The rigid all-metal IP54 compliant construction of the compact SIR3 makes it ideally suited to withstand even the harshest outdoor environment.
Jo Cleaves, Sales & Marketing Director of Specialised Imaging commented "When capturing images of really high-speed ballistic events with a tight field of view you really need a camera that can take a picture within nanoseconds of the trigger. In addition to capture images with minimal blur you require a range camera able to capture and record data with nanosecond exposure times. This is not possible even with the even the highest speed video camera".
A high speed 1Gbps Ethernet link enables the SIR3 to be easily integrated into almost any imaging environment. Comprehensive operational software provides simple control of imaging parameters and extensive measurement tools to accurately analyse results. Image archiving in a wide range of industry standard file formats is supported. For situations where more complex measurements are required, several SIR3 cameras can be operated from a single control computer with timings for all camera linked to the same control screen.
The Specialised Imaging SIR camera range is proven in leading ballistics proofing ranges around the world. Its latest iteration the SIR3 sets a new benchmark in terms of blur-free data quality, ultimate resolution, high sensitivity and precise timing accuracy.
