Thermoteknix shares latest advancement in night-time defence at Eurosatory
Thermoteknix is showcasing its latest advancement in night-time defence at Eurosatory 2022, a system that brings together augmented reality (AR), thermal imaging and ATAK (Android Team Awareness Kit) capabilities.
Thermoteknix’ Augmented Reality Tactical Interface Module (ARTIM) is able to display AR in thermal mode (or without thermal), while also displaying Blue Force Tracking and target information from ATAK or another central command system.
Thermoteknix released a prototype of ARTIM last year, but this will be the first live system now in production to be demonstrated in public – and will be on display throughout Eurosatory 2022.
More about ARTIM...
ARTIM delivers heads-up situational awareness to the equipped user during outdoor on-the-move operations.
ARTIM mounts to the back of the helmet to track where the user is located and where they are looking, receiving/publishing networked PLI (Position Location Information) data, and rendering an augmented reality overlay to the user. Data is displayed by the Thermoteknix ClipIR XD – a thermal imaging clip-on device mounting on an NVG, providing not only augmented reality data but also thermal imaging fusion.
The system delivers heads-up navigation and tracking of friendlies, using GPS and digital terrain elevation data (DTED) to deliver accurate visualisation of geo-spatial information.
ARTIM integrates with most digitalised soldier systems and secure communication networks to offer real-time data sharing and instant situational awareness for collaboration across teams and agencies.
“Thermoteknix is committed to delivering state-of-the-art thermal imaging technology that is designed and manufactured in the UK and plays a crucial role in equipping troops around the world, who operate in the most challenging of environments,” said Thermoteknix Managing Director, Dr Richard Salisbury.
“ARTIM is the latest technology from our R&D team which is transforming battlefield technology and we continue to develop world-leading solutions that enhances military technology advantage.”
Thermoteknix is working with military forces and civilian law enforcement agencies around the world to integrated ARTIM and ClipIR XD Thermal Clip-on Systems into their night-time resources to enhance situational awareness and threat detection capabilities at low light or no light situations.
The ClipIR XD Thermal Clip-on System converts existing monocular or binocular night vision devices by fusing thermal imaging and night vision technologies to provide superior tactical advantages compared to standard night vision or thermal imaging alone.
The UK MoD has already procured over £3 million worth of thermal and AR capabilities from Thermoteknix for the British Army, with the first consignment expected to be delivered later this month.
Thermoteknix designs and manufactures specialist defence and security solutions, including thermal imagers, night vision, fused night vision and target location systems, used by military and civil security forces around the world.
