Engineers from State Corporation Rostec’s Shvabe Holding are offering a new technological solution for laser range-gated imaging systems, designed to improve the functionality of opto-electronic surveillance equipment. 

Shvabe Holding subsidiary MZ Sapphir has upgraded one of its laser imaging devices by adding a thermal imaging channel, a passive mode control panel and other technical elements.

The new device enables surveillance in low light night-time conditions and low atmospheric visibility caused by fog, rain, snow and other weather events. 

The patented upgraded imaging system is expected to deliver 3 to 10x magnification. Under normal visibility conditions, the maximum recognition range will be 1 km for a human figure, 4 km for a truck, and 15 km for a ship.

“The proposed solution improves the functionality of night vision devices. Precision surveillance in difficult conditions and quick angular field adjustment without compromising the image quality are just some of the advantages of the new build,” says Sergey Kuznetsov, CEO of MZ Sapphir. 

“These capabilities set the device apart from the products that are currently on the market.”
