New clip-on system converts a standard Canon(R) EOS 5D camera into a day/night SWIR imaging system

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- UTC Aerospace Systems announces the Sensors Unlimited Warrior C2S, the newest lightweight, field-ready Shortwave Infrared (SWIR) module and covert laser illuminator.  The compact module locks into the front of a Canon(®) EOS 5D camera (Mark II and Mark III models) to immediately provide operators with SWIR imaging capabilities on the battlefield for day or nighttime use.  The system enables identification quality SWIR imagery, even in total darkness, with a distinct advantage over visible, thermal and night vision goggle systems, with the ability to image through glass to provide target accuracy with enhanced situational awareness.  UTC Aerospace Systems is a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

For added convenience, the Sensors Unlimited Warrior C2S couples directly with Canon EF-mount lenses, allowing the user to see through haze, smoke and dust for enhanced, long-range intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR).

This lightweight clip-on Sensors Unlimited Warrior C2S module uses the uncooled SUI 640HSX SWIR camera core with 640 x 512 pixel resolution and a 25-micron pitch, with integrated 800x600 SVGA display and relay optics specifically designed for gloved-hand operation with a large environmentally sealed power switch for easy access.

The system can be used with commercial off-the-shelf optics and cameras without the need for modifications or tools, and will be showcased with the recently introduced Sensors Unlimited Warrior HWH (handheld/weapon/helmet) viewer system at the upcoming Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC), May 20 - 22, 2014, Tampa Convention Center, Tampa, Florida. Please visit UTC Aerospace Systems' booth # 740 for a demonstration.
