SGC – STAND-ALONE GUN (BORESIGHT) CAMERA
For fast testing of static and dynamic misalignments of guns, the SGC offers the market’s most convenient solution. By using only a gun adapter and a video interface, the SGC can be connected to any standard video display.
Among the features of the SGC are:
- High resolution and precision
- Simple and precise installation into gun barrel in only a few seconds
- Self-aligned to the bore – no adjustments necessary
- Ruggedized and splash proof
- Mechanically and optically stable over time and temperature
ALIGNER 224 OPTICAL TRACKING EVALUATION SYSTEM
The Aligner 224 offers an efficient solution to the task of verifying tracking and shooting performance of a ship’s weapon system. High precision, rugged cameras are attached to the weapons and connected to the Aligner 224 together with video from fire control directors. By simultaneously displaying two or more video sources on screen, tracking errors and evaluation can be made in real time.
The video camera characteristics are the same as for the SGC, see above.
Among the features of the Aligner 224 are:
- Up to four video cameras and four auxiliary video sources can be connected
- Up to four video sources can be displayed concurrently
- Precision video cameras giving sharp, high-brilliance video
- Extremely accurate, self-aligned gun barrel video-camera adapters
- Electronic cross hairs, zooming, contrasting, etc.
- Video recording to disk
- Voice recording (for comments and other purposes, in real time)
In summary, the Aligner 224 has a proven record of enabling you to:
- Perform a full ship weapon tracking evaluation in two to four hours
- Later detailed analysis by replay of recorded video, voice and data
