Lucid Technology - Overview
A rendering of 360° x 360° (4 Pi Steradian) SDS 3D
Spherical Detection Systems (SDS 3D™) utilize a full spherical distribution of infrared sensors providing up to 360x360 degrees of coverage around a platform or critical structure. The SDS system calculates extremely accurate 3D angular coordinates of infrared heat signatures for use in locating, tracking, and countering threats. These heat signatures range from human IR to high speed high temperature events such as an explosion. The SDS 3D™ is the ideal sensor system for ground based or airborne applications where complete situational awareness is crucial for protection and survivability. Data output from the system can be integrated with pan/tilt/zoom imaging systems for further target identification. Specific areas where the SDS 3D™ device can be implemented include: Search and Rescue, high speed threat detection, sniper fire location, perimeter monitoring, harbor security, border patrol, and airport security.
