BAE Systems has released a five-ounce sensor for unmanned systems that aims to help soldiers see laser designator spots and confirm targets at night.
The Digitally Fused Sensor System aims to provide users a single display of images blended in low-light and infrared for surveillance missions, BAE Systems announced Wednesday.
The DFSS works to automatically adjust settings to fit the environmental conditions.
Eric Hansen, business development manager for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance solutions at BAE, said the company intends for soldiers using the DFSS sensor fusion to not have to switch between daytime and infrared cameras.
The device is meant to work in full daylight, deep shadows, dawn and dusk, illuminated night operations and darkness.
