Honeywell announced today that it is developing a revolutionary system for the Defense Advanced Research Agency (DARPA) that could dramatically improve the military's intelligence analyzing capabilities by allowing analysts to evaluate images from satellites, ground cameras and surveillance aircraft more precisely and quickly than ever before.
A new, 1.4 megapixel, high speed camera from DALSA, the Falcon 1.4M100, is now available from Firstsight Vision. Featuring DALSA's patented CMOS sensor technology, the new camera delivers an astonishing 100 fps at full 1400 x 1024 pixel resolution. Even faster frame rates can be achieved through vertical windowing. The dynamic range of 57 db ensures excellent image quality.
A team from Kyoto University has demonstrated a method for dynamically changing the lifetime of a photonic crystal resonator, which in effect can trap a pulse of light inside the system. Susumu Noda and his colleagues showed that the Q factor of their system, a measure of the number of time periods of light after which most of the light has left the system, could be increased by a factor of four from 3,000 to 12,000 within just a few picoseconds.
Northrop Grumman Corporation has received a contract to develop and deliver the latest generation of data links for its LITENING Advanced Targeting (AT) pod from the U.S. Air Force Materiel Command's Aeronautical Systems Center, as the executive procurement agency for the Air Combat Command, Air Force Reserve Command, Air National Guard, U.S. Marine Corps and coalition forces.
In an effort to find an answer to the problem of identifying smuggled special nuclear material (SNM), researchers at Sandia National Laboratories in California say a neutron scatter camera they are developing may be able to detect radiation from much greater distances and through more shielding than current detection instruments.
