According to TREFIS.com, the drone featuring Hood Technology’s systems is one of three stock market “plays” for commercial and military applications. The Hood Tech equipment is on one of only three UAVs currently approved for commercial applications. Analyst Samuel Rae concludes both commercial and military uses will be important. “Of course, we hope he’s right, and that we can contribute economically and technically,” said a Hood Tech Vision representative.
When Hood Tech began producing 800-gm video-camera turrets in 1998, it enabled an entirely new class of small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Hood Technology Vision now designs and manufactures imaging and video processing systems at the highest level of the National Imagery Interpretability Rating Scale (NIIRS): Level 9. Hood Tech Vision matches embedded stabilization technology with electro-optical lenses that zoom up to 200X. This results in a field of view of 0.3 degrees, in payloads that weigh from less than one to six kg. Hood Tech Vision imagers consume as little as one-fifth the power common for such systems, increasing the power budget available to other sensors for Multi-INT missions.
Designed for manned and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), boats, land vehicles, and towed and stationary mounts, the reliability and utility of Hood Tech’s daylight and thermal imaging products has been demonstrated during more than 900,000 hours of use in a variety of temperatures, humidity, dust, smoke, haze, and other environmental factors (http://www.hoodtechvision.com).
Dr. Andy von Flotow founded Hood Technology in Hood River, Oregon in 1993. Along with the design and manufacture of stabilized imaging systems, Hood Tech:
-Develops, tests, and manufactures launch and retrieval systems for UAVs
-Operates controlled launch and quiet wind tunnel test facilities
-Monitors blade vibrations in industrial turbines and jet engines, including diagnostic methods that predict possible future turbine failures.
