Specialised Imaging - Recording & analysing unpredictable high-speed projectiles

Specialised Imaging Ltd
: 17 September, 2009  (New Product)
Specialised Imaging Ltd. has announced a new technological innovation for its SIR2 camera that enables researchers to accurately record and analyse projectiles with unpredictable velocities.
Traditionally recording images of high-speed projectiles with unpredictable velocity has been very unreliable. Using the input from two separate sensors, a measured distance apart, fed into the two inputs of the SIR2 camera - the new proprietary SureShot real-time hardware is able to capture unpredictable high-speed projectiles mid frame - first time, every time. This advance in trigger reliability also enables researchers to narrow the field-of-view of the camera, thereby increasing the achievable resolution of results. The dual trigger methodology has been proven in field trials to work on projectiles moving at unpredictable velocities.

The SIR2 is a high performance, ballistic range camera proven in testing ranges worldwide to offer the ultimate in resolution, timing accuracy, and measurement capabilities. The 11-million pixel images provide more detail than any other high-speed camera in its class. The SIR2 extends ballistic test range capabilities further with its unique ability to acquire two separate full resolution images. This novel feature provides valuable information on displacement and velocity for ballistics, detonics and impact studies. Where the ultimate dynamic range is required for a measurement the SIR2 can also be operated in single image mode. The rigid all-metal IP54 compliant construction of the compact SIR2 makes it ideally suited to withstand even harsh industrial and military environments.

An integral TFT monitor allows users to 'see what the camera sees' in real-time, thus allowing users to easily optimise focus and lighting to achieve spectacular results. All imaging functions can be controlled from the intuitive local keypad for setup, while full remote operation is achieved over standard Ethernet cabling enabling the SIR2 to be easily integrated into almost any imaging environment. Comprehensive operational software provides simple control of imaging parameters and extensive measurement tools to accurately analyse results. Image archiving in a wide range of industry standard file formats is supported. For situations where more complex measurements are required, several cameras can be operated from a single control computer with timings for all camera linked to the same control screen.

Specialised Imaging Ltd. is a knowledgeable, dynamic company focused upon design, manufacture, service and supply of ultra high-speed imaging systems and components for industrial, defence and scientific applications.
