Photonis to showcase FUSIONSIGHT world first digital smart fusion night vision at Land Forces 2016 
PHOTONIS will be showcasing its new FusionSight® Night Vision Device during Land Forces 2016, held from September 6 to 8 in Adelaide, Australia. Developed in partnership with BERTIN, FusionSight® is the world- first compact monocular that combines a colour low light sensor with a thermal image sensor. When combined these sensors enhance situational awareness and provide users with the option of using a thermal image, colour optical image or a fused thermal and full colour image, that can also be recorded.

FusionSight® is the industry’s first hand held device that features smart colour fusion of images. The first image is recorded by a state-of-the-art colour imaging sensor that provides a colour image in extreme low light conditions (~10 mlx) without additional illumination. The second image is recorded by a high-resolution thermal imaging sensor that can detect in any night condition (down to 1 mlx). The embedded real-time image processor automatically selects key information from each sensor, allowing users to see at dark night even better than in broad daylight, and can record and be saved as a digital file. The smart digital fusion also overcomes the traditional limitations of each individual sensor: FusionSight® can detect through smoke, other obscurants and in deep night conditions with a thermal sensor, while providing an optical colour image that can detect through windows with sufficient resolution to allow positive identification thanks to the colour imaging sensor.

FusionSight®’s assets include:
• All-in-one with 3 viewing modes: colour low light, thermal and smart fusion
• Night & day threat & camouflage detection (ranging up to 3 km)
• Ergonomic design inspired by user’s needs
• Image recording & HD video output for proof collection

For the FusionSight®, the award winning Kameleon Colour Image Sensor is used. The sensor uses a Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) similar to mobile phones, which in itself, cannot distinguish colours. To identify colour, a patented innovation allows two raw images and a reconstruction algorithm to reproduce the final image in colour, in real time. The FusionSight® can be seen at PHOTONIS’ stand 4A13 during Land Forces Australia held from 6-8 September 2016 in Adelaide.

PHOTONIS is a multinational high-tech group of companies and globally recognized industry leader specialized in photo sensor imaging technologies. The company manufactures innovative electro-optic components and systems that are used to detect ions, electrons and photons. The company provides innovative and high quality sensors and components used in a wide range of applications including night vision optics, digital cameras, mass spectrometry, physics research and (aero)space exploration. Through continuous innovation, PHOTONIS is the developer of the “INTENS” image intensifier, the only night vision sensor developed according to the new 4G standard.
