FusionSight® was officially selected by the USSOCOM to be part of a Technical Evaluation on Night Vision technologies, at Camp Blanding (Florida) between November 14th and 16th.
Assessments took place in the border of an airstrip, surrounded by pines forest and decommissioned buildings. There was a “supermoon” on the 14th of November, which means the luminosity was 30% greater than usual for a full moon. The transist light conditions were good for evaluations during dusk into evening. The sky was always clear, so the light conditions were the best for FusionSight® trials, with its Low Light sensor providing a color image when the moon was visible.
Bertin Technologies team successfully demonstrated to the assessors the key features and the main advantages of FusionSight®:
- Discamouflage capability, thanks to fusion between IR and Low Light sensors
- DRI Medium-Range of IR and Low Light modes
- Recognition and identification outside, thanks to Low Light and fusion images in color
- Mobility and ergonomics, thanks to both weight and design of FusionSight
The main assessors for FusionSight®, two officers working for WARCOM, said “Your fusion is a great feature, and your thermal mode is very clean”.
