The company provides customized Infrared Sensing Solutions for our customers incorporating technology from our parent company, SCD, which is a leading world-wide foundry for optoelectronic technology and manufacturing based in Haifa, Israel.
The AN/VSQ-6B Vehicle Optics Sensor System is a surveillance system designed for vehicles supporting route and area clearance of explosives, ordnance and other threats.
The VOSS is a gyrocam system that uses gyro-stabilized electro-optical sensors and night vision devices designed for bad weather and completely dark nights. It can be used by ground vehicles, aircraft and ships, as well as in static positions for area security.
The systems are used by the U.S. military, NATO and law enforcement agencies. The VOSS is often mounted on mine-resistant protected vehicles used by ground forces, including those used during Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan.
