Thermal night vision device – Perisight - Bertin Technologies


Thermal night vision device – Perisight

PeriSight is a high-performance, scalable optronic solution to be distributed over the platform for optimized night and day surveillance, up to 2 km.

Driver support, safe manoeuvres, detection and identification of any obstacle or threat around the vehicle, by day or night under degraded conditions… these are the main performances of Bertin Instruments’ PeriSight.

Compliant with military standards, this ruggedized solution can adapt to any type of armored vehicle, to give the crew a panoramic view over the platform and offer optimum visual comfort to the pilot despite driving with reduced visibility.

The PeriSight optronic equipment is based on 2 or more camera modules distributed over the platform according to an optimized configuration adapted to the user needs, be it Driver Vision Enhancement (DVE) or Local Situational Awareness (LSA).

Driver Vision Enhancement – For safe, intuitive and comfortable driving, Bertin Instruments recommends combining two PeriSight modules on either side of the vehicle in order to multiply vision modes (thermal and color low light): front or rear view; front and rear view for simultaneous observation. Fusion and electronic stabilization are both optional functionalities.

In this configuration, the driver vision enhancement solution provides fluid, low latency pictures, allowing the pilot to drive with confidence under armor, up to 80 km/h. It thus reduces the risks linked to fast driving with poor visibility.

Local Situational Awareness – The local situational awareness solution PeriSight consists in 4 to 8 optronic sensors distributed over the platform depending on the user needs and the vehicle type. Improving the crew’s safety on board and facilitating manoeuvres, it can feature advanced surveillance functions: acoustics, telemetry, video stream sharing, automatic target detection and tracking (options).

Providing high quality panoramic view, it can meet varied fixed or mobile applications, regardless of the tactical, strategic or operational goals. This impact-resistant, 360-degree local situational awareness system significantly improves the surveillance of the vehicle’ surroundings: its 3 viewing modes (day, night, fusion), several fields of view, and segmented or stitched panorama images all guarantee PeriSight’s perfect adaptability to operational threats and constraints.

Compact modular Optronics system in 4 steps:

1 – MODULES DEFINITION PeriSight imaging sensor modules include color low light and thermal sensors. Field Of Views are adapted on the application.

  • COLOUR LOW LIGHT: A state-of-the-art color imaging sensor provides a first image in extreme low light conditions (~10 mlx) without additional illumination.
  • THERMAL: A high-resolution thermal sensor detects people under all night conditions.

2 – VEHICLE POSITIONING EXPERTISE Bertin Instruments provides expertise in selecting modules according to user needs and vehicle type.   3 – DATA PROCESSING SOLUTION PeriSight modules are wired to a single electronic housing (VigiSight 65) for electronic stabilization, automatic detection and tracking.

4 – INTEGRATION SERVICES Bertin Instruments provides full integration services for the PeriSight system. Videos are displayed on a screen, which is also used to control and command PeriSight.
