ATEN SWIR illuminator

ATEN SWIR illuminator

Challenge


Develop a SWIR illumination source with demanding characteristics:

  • Multiple fields of illumination
  • Very compact and lightweight
  • Ultimate energy efficiency
  • Military-level ruggedness

Solution


We developed a miniaturized and highly optimized optical-mechanical-electrical diode-laser-based solution. We also developed high-efficiency electronics and optics so as to transmit every possible bit of light in the user’s field of view.

Results


This novel product increases the detection, recognition and identification capabilities of night-vision systems such as cameras, sights and binoculars. Ultimately, this means quicker and better decisions in the field.

Extended autonomy for battery-operated night-vision systems.
