Specialists of ASTROHN Technology ltd. in Mobilization – a special report on Russia-24 TV channel.

Vladimir Popov, The general director of ASTROHN Technology ltd. demonstrates growth process of germanium crystals in a special growth unit.

This rare metal is used at Lytkarino Optical-Mechanical Design Bureau to produce lenses for thermal imagers. The single crystal is cut into thin plates for the subsequent manufacture of customized lenses of the desired diameter.

If you set the glass against germanium, the glass will not transmit infrared rays. But germanium will. Therefore, it is good to use it in the dark and in bad weather and poor visibility conditions.

The design bureau has a large state order – to produce 3000 thermal imagers per month.

It will be a fixed system deployable at the airport, train stations and other crowded places.

The design bureau produces a contactless thermal scanner for detecting people with high body temperature in cooperation with Lytkarino Optical Glass Factory, where assembly process takes place.

The thermal imager has two optics – television – to recognize the silhouette of a person, and thermal – to measure the temperature.

One second is enough to measure the temperature of the object. If the temperature is high, the device takes a photo of a person, records the time and place on the map.

Evgenii Shvedov, design engineer, demonstrates a fully assembled device. Andrei Malchik, head of the scientific and technical center for the development of optoelectronic systems at Lytkarino Optical Glass Plant demonstrates the operation of the system software.

The design bureau specializes in microcryogenic systems. They can cool metal to -200 degrees per minute. They produce lenses for military equipment. The enterprise has been awarded such civil order for thermal imagers for the first time.
