Infra Red sensor demonstration planned for symposium.

DRS Technologies : 27 February, 2008  (Application Story)
US defence and security symposium to be attended by DRS Technologies to demonstrate a range of IR sensors for applications in the industry.
As industry leaders in the development of electro-optical infrared (EO/IR) sensors and systems for military applications, the Reconnaissance, Surveillance and Target Acquisition (RSTA) business segment of DRS Technologies will present its capabilities at the upcoming Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) Defence & Security Symposium annual convention, March 17-20 in Orlando, Florida.

DRS will present imaging components and systems for military, civil and commercial applications, including advanced cooled and uncooled thermal-imaging solutions for soldier systems, ground vehicle, airborne, and maritime as well as for industrial, security, public safety and firefighting applications.
DRS's EO/IR programs include the highly successful Driver Vision Enhancer (DVE), Thermal Weapon Sight (TWS), Improved Bradley Acquisition System (IBAS), and lightweight sensor systems for the U.S. Army's Future Combat Systems (FCS) programs, to name just a few.

DRS-RSTA segment president James Baird said his company's success in areas such as these is attributable in large part to a culture of close collaboration with customers and an in-depth understanding of their requirements.

"We are a technology company built on military experience and technical innovation, but I believe it's our commitment to working together with customers that's at the heart of our success," he said. "Whether their applications are military, civil or commercial, it's our goal to help them, and the ultimate end-user, gain an unfair advantage in whatever enemies or battles they face each day."

Toward that end, DRS has been providing customers, prime contractors and OEMs with advanced infrared-imaging systems, components and services such as those planned to be presented at the SPIE convention.

"DRS continues to drive next-generation technologies in order to deliver the advantages our customers are looking for," Baird said. "The result is a continuing series of innovations to enhance range performance, decrease size and weight, reduce power requirements, and improve both reliability and affordability."

Although DRS has extended its reach beyond military applications, its military depth represents a major benefit for civil and commercial customers, Baird said. "We know how to design and build EO/IR products for the toughest environments on earth; there's probably not an application challenge we're not willing to take on."
