5 May 2017 Multi-aperture approach to digital color night vision
Author Affiliations +
Color night vision is a high priority for the defense community. The successful achievement of seeing color images in extremely low light is also of high commercial value for use in a range of degraded visual conditions or as a vision aid for sight impaired users. Creative MicroSystems has been working on a digital night vision system using a multiaperture approach that enables video rate color night vision. The approach produces increased operational performance, a substantial cost reduction and uses enhanced computed vision algorithms running on commercial off-the-shelf processors. Early systems have achieved color imaging in moonless night conditions in a very compact form factor.
