YOU SAW IT SO WILL YOUR CUSTOMERS

DEL Imaging Systems is the leader in providing high speed camera systems to help the military (and subcontractors) qualify new aircraft, drones, ascending gear, and weapons systems.

Common applications for defense projects include:

DEL Imaging Systems was called to provide multiple cameras to help research, test and design a critical part of the Space Tracking and Surveillance System (STSS) The system is used to detect and counter ballistic missiles as a part of our national defense.

Camera Systems We Like For Defense:

  • OS Series
    • Sets remote triggering to set up all the events (example: take 8 shots out of 8 areas for 64 events in the software, which can be powered from the plane and triggered from the pilot)- also flexible to preset up to 64 segments
    • Inbuilt 256GB up to 2GB solid state memory with immediate backup and stream capture for minutes of time at high speed frame rates
  • Y Series wIth Integrated LEDs
    • Offers lighting plus optics plus camera packages which need to work together to get the correct pictures
