SPIE DSS Baltimore 2013

04 April 2013

Vision4ce (pronounced "Vision-Force") is proud to announce our 5th year of participation in the upcoming SPIE DSS (Defense, Security, and Sensing) symposium from April 29 to May 2, 2013 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore Maryland. SPIE DSS, http://spie.org/x6765.xml, is the world's largest unclassified event for defense, security, and sensing applications for industry and the environment. Stop by the Vision4ce exhibition stand (Booth 927) to meet our team, learn about our products and services or visit us at www.vision4ce.com.

Among other hardware and applications, Vision4ce will display our latest General-purpose Ruggedized Integrated Processor (GRIP) rugged PC, DVR and video management products. Our GRIP Epsilon is the latest in Vision4ce's range of rugged PCs that bring together the cutting-edge Intel i7 CPUs, high-end graphics and General-Purpose GPU (GPGPU) many-core processor capability; all delivered in a sealed (IP 67), environmentally hardened chassis that is designed to work in extended temperature ranges, providing high-performance computing for your demanding processing needs in harsh environments. The Vision4ce GRIP Epsilon provides the most capable and affordable CUDA enabled GPUs available in a small rugged form factor.

The GRIP Epsilon is a true commercial off the shelf (COTS) high performance rugged computer targeted at applications that can efficiently function in harsh environments. As with all the Vision4ce GRIP products (e.g., GRIP computers, DVRs and Video Management Systems), the GRIP Epsilon is an affordable, rugged, real-time deployable GPGPU with internal shock isolation and MIL-spec connectors, offering a price to performance ratio unmatched by conventional embedded military hardware.

In addition, our own Cynthia Archer will deliver a paper on Tuesday, April 30th on "Improved Target Recognition with Live Atmospheric Correction", co-author by Jim Morgenstern. The presentation will cover how hyperspectral airborne sensing systems can employ spectral signature databases to detect materials of interest, while taking into account and correcting for atmospheric effects. Cynthia's discussion will demonstrate how in the present work, we develop an automatic method for correcting both additive and multiplicative reflectance effects through the atmosphere to improve low altitude airborne sensors constrained by small imaging footprints, while using sensed data and a library of spectral signatures.

As one of over 500 companies that will be on hand at the SPIE DSS event in Baltimore, we encourage you to come experience the newest products, latest innovations and cutting-edge technologies in optics, lasers, sensors, image processing, spectroscopy, infrared systems and optoelectronic components.
