By Ellen Fischl Bodner|Industrial|

Innovation in imaging for aerospace and defense has gone micro. Powerful, yet tiny micro-cameras can now provide unique streaming-video solutions for a wide range of applications requiring highly robust systems for direct visualization under extremely harsh conditions.

Where Are They Going? Innovative Borescopes & Endoscopes

By Ellen Fischl Bodner|Industrial|

Borescopes and Endoscopic cameras. From a bird’s eye view, these may seem similar: a flexible or rigid tube with Chip-on-Tip / CMOS technology. Zooming in, we can appreciate the powerful capabilities they provide for a spectrum of visualization applications -- in aerospace, industrial inspection, defense/security, research, and of course, cutting-edge medicine. Let’s examine some innovations and trends.

Endoscopes evolve

By Michelle Jacobson|Industrial|

Endoscopes have evolved since Philipp Bozzini first developed the device in 1806, with modern versions using fiber-optics, light sources, improved optical components, and cameras placed at their distal tip....
