Characterization of night-vision systems

Characterization of night-vision systems

Challenge


Develop a deep understanding of the advantages and limitations of night-vision technology in different operational scenarios.

Solution


In collaboration with the team at Defense Research and Development Canada (DRDC) Valcartier, we’ve put systems-engineering approaches to good use. We’ve developed procedures, instrumentation and simulation tools that provide world-class capabilities to DRDC for predicting and evaluating the performance of night-vision equipment for the Canadian Forces.

Results


  • Improved accuracy on expected performance means improved tactical planning.
  • Better-equipped forces gain an edge over the enemy.
  • Development of an expertise in this important technology.
