Firstsight Vision : 13 September, 2007  (New Product)
Firstsight Vision branches into Industrial, Security and Defence thermal imaging market with Opgal distribution agreement.
Firstsight Vision is delighted to have signed an exclusive
distribution agreement for the UK with Opgal Optronic Industries Ltd

part of a wider European agreement with the Stemmer Imaging Group.

Opgal is a leading supplier of highly sensitive cooled and uncooled
Thermal Imaging Systems, infrared camera engines and custom systems
for industrial, R&D, defense, security and paramilitary applications
to OEM's and Integrators implemented in the air, sea and land. OPGAL
manufactures fourth-generation infrared cameras, based on InSb or MCT
cryogenically cooled detectors and on VOx or aSi microbolometer
uncooled detectors. The InSb or MCT detectors function in the 3 μm to
5 μm spectral band and are available in 320 x 240 or 640 x 480 pixel
resolution. The microbolometer systems operate in the 8 μm to 12 μm
spectral band with 640X480 or 320 x 240 or 160 x 120 pixel resolution.

Opgal's thousands of electro-optical and thermal imaging products in
service throughout the world are the result of 25 years of experience
in innovative development. Opgal is headquartered in Karmiel, Israel.

Firstsight Director Mark Williamson, said "This agreement is part of
our strategy to utilise the synergies between the high end security/
defence market and the machine vision market. Additional resources
are being applied in conjunction with this appointment to maximise
our impact in this new market. Unlike many of the IR manufacturers,
Opgal use Israeli and European sensor technology, so the long delays
that occur with many suppliers to gain US Export licences does not
apply, significantly reducing delivery times."
