Cedip Infrared Systems has announced VILGA - an advanced video tracking and image processing package for applications including maritime and aerial surveillance, missile evaluation and trajectory measurements.
Incorporating the latest image processing algorithms embedded in a compact ruggedised package the VILGA video tracker offers video tracking from multiple video sources installed in the optical payload. Easily adapted to meet a wide range of applications the VILGA video tracker delivers top performance as it provides electronic stablisation of images from external sensors. VILGA operates under a robust real time operating system (RTOS) with minimum latency time for critical tasks.
Using VILGA - targets are highlighted and overlaid on screen during tracking. The user can select a given target amongst several proposed by the tracker. Selecting and engaging a target in tracking mode is simply made by the user using a hand grip controller. Once engaged the video tracker will drive the turret to the target. The VILGA card offers a Picture-in-Picture mode (PIP) where two sensors can be displayed on a single display. The user can select which sensor to display as full screen when operating the PIP mode. The PIP mode feature is particularly useful when using a spotter scope in combination with a TV zoom camera.
