FARNBOROUGH, England, 10 July 2012. The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA] announced its new camera system, the Boeing Intelligent Sensor, that provides defense and security customers with integrated video-processing capability. It is designed for real-time imaging systems for which low size, weight and power (SWaP) are critical, such as security systems, perimeter defense, and surveillance on small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
The camera has been shown in live demonstrations at the Boeing enduring awareness pavilion at the 2012 Farnborough International Airshow. The Boeing Intelligent Sensor is a medium-wavelength infrared (MWIR) camera system that allows users to perform data analysis within the camera itself, eliminating the need for external processing equipment. This reduces download time as well as bandwidth requirements for systems that include the Boeing Intelligent Sensor.
