JUNE 11--Irvine Sensors (Costa Mesa, CA; www.irvine-sensors.com) has delivered the first units of a personalized miniature thermal viewer (PMTV) based on its Cam-Noir infrared camera technology. The PMTV is a hand-held, battery-operated video viewer, complete with eyepiece and display screen, that can produce video images in fog, obscurants, or total darkness. The initial imager is of 320 x 240 format. It weighs approximately 1/2 pound and is smaller than consumer video camcorders. Using two AA lithium batteries, the PMTV is capable of four hours of continuous operation.

Irvine Sensors developed the PMTV for military applications and plans to market the viewer for commercial applications, including law enforcement, fire fighting, and security. Production quantities of the initial PMTV model could be available in the first calendar quarter of 2005. Potential customers can contact Bert Hornback at bhornback@irvine-sensors.com for information regarding pricing and delivery.
