AR helps image analysts move towards ‘situational understanding’, says FLIR

3rd July 2020 - 16:00 GMT | by Gerrard Cowan in Belfast


FLIR plans to integrate AR into its new Star SAFIRE 380X long-range imaging system with the aim of significantly improving operator situational awareness, company officials have told Shephard.

The 380X was launched in mid-June as an upgrade for the existing Star SAFIRE gimbal systems – such as the 380-HD and the smaller 380-HDc – or as a new-build standalone system.  

It brings added capability with no external dimensional changes and a weight increase of less than 3lb (1.4kg), while remaining a single Line Replaceable Unit system, said Troy Boonstra, senior director of sensor systems product management at FLIR.
