Goodrich Introduces Enhanced Imagery Stability and Tracking for TASE Gimbal Family
Press release date: June 17, 2011
PARIS -- PARIS AIR SHOW -- Goodrich Corporation (NYSE: GR), has introduced a second generation video processing solution - the VPS II. Bringing together video processing, image stabilization and target tracking in a small low power system, this new product will greatly increase the stability and image range of the Goodrich TASE gimbal family produced at Goodrich's ISR Systems business in Hood River, Oregon (Cloud Cap Technology) or similar gimbaled camera systems developed by other manufacturers.
Combining new hardware and circuitry with extremely effective new software algorithms, VPS II will provide unprecedented stability in imagery from moving camera systems. In addition to the stability improvements, the system will provide sophisticated new tracking solutions allowing users to designate and track objects along complex paths, when they are concealed and when the object is transitioning (such as a person getting into a car).
This second generation system now enables objects to be identified more easily and from a greater distance, due to the level of stabilization of the image taken from moving platforms such as UAVs, towers and manned aircraft.
