Cedip Infrared Systems has introduced the VILGA – an advanced video tracking and image processing package for applications including maritime and aerial surveillance, missile evaluation and trajectory measurements.
Incorporating the latest image processing algorithms embedded in a compact and rugged package, the VILGA offers video tracking from multiple video sources installed in the optical payload. It is easily adapted to meet a wide range of applications and provides electronic stabilisation of images from external sensors. VILGA operates under a robust real time operating system (RTOS) with minimum latency time for critical tasks.
The VILGA highlights targets which are overlaid on screen during tracking. The user can select a given target amongst several proposed by the tracker. Once engaged, the video tracker will drive the turret to the target. The VILGA card offers a picture-in-picture mode (PIP) where two sensors can be displayed on a single display. The user can select which sensor to display as full screen when operating the PIP mode. The PIP mode feature is particularly useful when using a spotter scope in combination with a TV zoom camera.
