Application Story

Laser-Based Security System Relies on VersaLogic Single Board Computer (SBC) for Rugged Processing Power

VersaLogic engineers know about building dependable, high reliability embedded computers for rugged applications. Surveillance applications have lots of requirements when it comes to performance and their environment, as most are located outdoors subjected to the elements and need to run 24/7.

A leading supplier of security and surveillance cameras is using VersaLogic single board computers in their ultra-long-range laser illumination cameras. These high-performance surveillance systems are protecting airports, borders, ports, waterways and nuclear power plants around the world. Designed to be rugged and highly reliable, the systems are employed by both the U.S. Department of Energy and the Department of Defense. Unlike conventional night vision technologies that rely on moonlight, laser illumination cameras use continuous wave laser illumination, electro-optics and image processing to provide clear pictures in zero light or full daylight.

Using the high-performance processing power of the VersaLogic SBC, the surveillance system is capable of producing grayscale video in which words and numbers are legible from a range of up to 3000 meters. The system also provides visibility through rain and other inclement weather. Designed to withstand extreme temperature fluctuations, VersaLogic SBCs are capable of operating smoothly under the harshest environmental conditions.

When building a security or surveillance application, you can count on VersaLogic’s expertise to deliver reliable embedded systems. If your application needs a rugged, industrial temperature embedded computer, look no further than the company that has proven its performance for over 40 years.
