17µm Gen2 sensor integrated into new 3-viewer mode smart fusion camera by Bertin Technology

Eurosatory, Paris, France --- ULIS, a manufacturer of thermal image sensors, announces today the selection of its VGA 17 micron Gen2 thermal sensor in Bertin Technology’s FusionSight®. FusionSight is a lightweight night and day vision enhancer enabling three viewing modes: color imaging in extreme low-light, high-resolution thermal imaging to detect threats at night in all-weather conditions and smart fusion that allows real-time image processing. This feature is important for giving special forces the option to select key information provided by both the vision and thermal image sensors in a single image. Users will experience enhanced critical field vision at night or during the day at distances up to 3km.

ULIS’ VGA 17µm Gen2 thermal image sensor is one of a family of Gen2 products designed for enhanced image quality with an extended battery life, so threat detection can continue uninterrupted. The reliability of ULIS’ products has assured their selection in a range of military applications. These include: ground vehicle situational awareness, such as the Nexter IFV (Infantry Fighting Vehicle), handheld thermal imagers for the FELIN program, air-to-air refueling as well as application in missile seekers.

Certified to military-grade standards (MIL STAND 810/833), ULIS’ VGA 17µm Gen2 thermal image sensor operates at a wide temperature range (-40°C to +85°C) and is tecless and shutterless compatible. It offers decades for MTF (Mean Time to Failure) and a 10-year guarantee against vacuum loss.

Bertin Technologies equips the energy, environment, life sciences, defense and aerospace industries with technological innovations, integrated systems and services. It is active in nuclear deterrence, surface-to-air combat, biological and chemical control and homeland security. The company will exhibit FusionSight in hall 5 booth B-578. ULIS’ VGA 17µm Gen2 thermal image sensor will be displayed in hall 5 booth K 761.
