Head-on: ASTROHN welcomes guests

The 6th International Military-Technical Forum “Army-2020” began on August 23 and will continue until August 29. This year, despite all the epidemiological restrictions, the forum is held in an expanded format. The exposition occupied more than 320 thousand square meters. Traditionally, samples of the latest weapons and military equipment were presented here, and the main feature of this year was products used in the fight against coronavirus.

ASTROHN Technology Ltd. has been participating in the Army Forums since 2017. In 2017, for example, ASTROHN Technology Ltd. first ever presented the developed 384×288 and 640×480 microbolometric detectors with a pixel size of 17 μm. In 2018, the visitors showed a particular interest in the only uncooled microbolometric detector in Russia, developed in the same year at ASTROHN Technology Ltd., which operates in two spectral ranges – 3-5 µm and 8-14 µm. In 2019, for the first time, a microcryogenic system (MCS) for cooled photo-receiving devices was presented, which can compete with the best foreign cooling systems of the same class. This year, a full standard-size range of domestic integrated MCS has been presented, operating according to a closed reverse thermogasdynamic regenerative Stirling cycle with internal heat recovery.

On civil payroll: ASTROHN against coronavirus

Civilian products at the Army Forum are not a new phenomenon. In previous years, the forum demonstrated products produced within the framework of diversification. However, this year the focus is on a special “weapon” against coronavirus.

This year, visitors can get acquainted with thermal imagers for non-contact detection and registration of people with high body temperature. Employees of ASTROHN Technology Ltd. have invented ASTROHN-PTR2020 human temperature television and thermal scanner. It can detect elevated human body temperature (up to 0.3 °C) in the observation area in less than one second by non-contact, highly accurate method. The video image and infrared image, as well as the numerical values of temperatures, are displayed on the monitor. Once a person with fever is detected, a report page is automatically generated with the time, place, photo, and temperature data of that person. The key components of ASTROHN-PTR2020 hardware-software system (Thermal imaging module and software) are exclusively Russian products developed and manufactured by ASTROHN Technology Ltd.
