Army 2017 Forum

Exhibition of Military Achievements – Army 2017 Forum

Army 2017 was held at “Patriot” in August 22-27. This year, the Russian Ministry of Defense held a similar large-scale event for the third time. Traditionally, the military department brings here all the best it has. However, not only it – almost all the leaders of the Russian military-industrial complex try here at the main army forum of the country to show their best products, arrange memorable exhibitions, hold demonstrations and conduct master classes. This year, the forum guests were [...]

АСТРОН-384А17/МП/30. Погода: переменная облачность, 17-20 градусов Цельсия
Инженеры ОКБ «АСТРОН» завершили работы по созданию тепловизионных модулей АСТРОН-384А17 / 640А17

ASTROHN Technology Ltd engineers completed the creation of ASTROHN-384A17 / 640A17 thermal imaging modules

ASTROHN Technology Ltd engineers completed the creation of thermal imaging modules based on new 384×288 and 640×480 microbolometric detectors with a vanadium oxide sensitive element. The vanadium oxide sensor has several advantages. The first and most important is the higher temperature sensitivity of the matrix and image stability. The vanadium oxide detector is more resistant to flash exposure to a high-intensity source (for example, the sun), and has an increased operating temperature range. Together, these parameters make this module suitable [...]

ASTROHN Technology Ltd has successfully tested a new sample of a multispectral thermal imaging camera for the Navy Parade

In July 26-27, 2017, ASTROHN Technology Ltd tested a multispectral thermal imaging camera for the Black and Barents Sea seaports protection. The Interagency Commission adopted a sample of the product and recommended it for mass production. The characteristics of a multispectral camera significantly exceed existing foreign analogues due to the use of not only the thermal imaging and visible radiation spectrum, but also active-pulse observation technology. This technology allows observation and recognition of objects in dense fog and evaporation from [...]

Video of the IRidium II-384/15-60/T 15-60 mm continuous optical zoom lens thermal imaging module tests

Experts of ASTROHN Technology Ltd tested the IRidium II-384 thermal imaging module with the ASTROHN 15-60/T IR zoom lens. The lens controller maintains the position of the zoom and focus of the lens in non-volatile memory, so you can set any level of magnification and focus in a matter of moments, which eliminates the need for manual focus adjustment. The saved focus and zoom shortcut allows: significantly speeding up the lens; increasing the information content of the optical system; ensuring the convenience of the [...]

Iridium II-640/15-60/Т

ASTROHN Technology Ltd presenting a Russian IRidium II-640/15-60/T continuous 4x infrared lens thermal imager

The specialists of ASTROHN Technology Ltd have developed IRidium II-640/15-60/T thermal imaging module with a continuously variable focal length from 15 to 60 millimeters and proceeded to test it. Despite its integrated design, such a lens is more convenient to use than a fixed focus lens. The zoom lens allows the operator to change the focal length, which provides a range of viewing angles from narrow to wide, moving away and bringing closer the objects of observation. The lens has two [...]

Обнаружение малоразмерного БПЛА на расстоянии 3,5 км тепловизором АСТРОН

Small UAV detection at a 3.5 km distance with ASTROHN thermal imager

The detection of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) has become an increasingly urgent and acute problem in recent times. Continuous improvement and expansion of the scope of UAV application multiplies the number of possibilities for their illegal use. The objectives of the application are espionage and terrorist acts. In addition, they are already used in the army, as reconnaissance and attack aircraft. The small size and low efficiency of the reflective surface make modern UAVs an extremely inconvenient target for detection [...]

ASTROHN developed a color palette for the Iridium II

ASTROHN Technology Ltd specialists developed a color palette for the Iridium II thermal imaging module

It has long been an accepted fact that the thermal image is monochrome, displayed in grayscale, and that only hot spots glow bright white. For a more visual and natural perception of the image from the thermal imager, the ASTROHN Technology Ltd engineers have developed software for coloring the resulting image in a variety of palettes or pseudo colors. Pseudo color imaging is another method of increasing the detectability of depicted objects by a human observer. The “Pseudocolor” option, implemented [...]

Iridium II thermal imaging module received IRidium II-384(640)/CL Camera Link

Iridium II thermal imaging module received IRidium II-384(640)/CL Camera Link

The specialists of ASTROHN Technology Ltd have developed and produced a connection board for the Camera Link interface, as well as written software to support the protocol. Since Camera Link was designed specifically for machine vision cameras, it ensures a very high video signal speed, ease of use and data security. The scope of the module is vast due to its small size, low power consumption, and weight. Information output from the module can be carried out by various types [...]
