Dean P. Kossives and Michael G. Bush of Clear Align will be presenting papers on two innovative technologies during April 5-9, 2010 at the SPIE Defense, Security, and Sensing Conference located in Orlando, Florida. Clear Align is a provider of fiber optic, laser sensors and custom imaging for applications in the aerospace and military space.
CEO and President at Clear Align, Angelique X. Irvin stated that inventors Kossives and Bush have conducted extensive R&D work for providing cost-effective solutions for protecting soldiers stationed in hazardous environments. Miniature Soldier Sensor Platform (M-SSP) and Lock-In Imager are the inventions of Kossives and Bush, which give good hopes of threat detection in the future, though they are in their early development days now.
Kossives will present the details of M-SSP during the Photonic Microdevices/Microstructures for Sensing II session of the SPIE Conference. The M-SSP is a newly patented approach meant for detecting chemicals. Although still in early development stage, the technology offers short-range, real-time chemical threat analysis to civilians and soldiers.
Bush will present the details of Lock-In Imager development during the Airborne Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance (ISR) Systems and Applications VII session of the SPIE Conference. The Lock-In Imager is a highly sensitive camera platform with high resolution, which is suitable for secret surveillance and rescue and search operations. By using the capabilities of commercial off-the-shelf parts, the technology offers a cost-effective solution.
