ATACAMA video processor

Correction of atmospheric turbulence distortion

Combat the effects of atmospheric turbulence, haze or obscurants on long-range imagery by connecting Rheinmetall’s ATACAMA video processor to correct the distortion in real-time.

Compatible with HD digital, analogue or recorded sources, ATACAMA applies world-leading video enhancement technology for a visibly improved image in the presence of turbulent atmospheric distortion such as a heat haze.

ATACAMA deploys the world leading video processing software ATCOM, by EM Photonics, Inc., on a small, embedded form factor.
Key Features
  • Correct atmospheric turbulence distortion
  • Patented, mature technology
  • HD digital or analogue video
  • Standalone or VMS integration
  • Small form factor
  • Low latency, live video processing

Ideal for integration into any security, surveillance and situational awareness systems, it will improve system operational effectiveness, without compromising the original system size and performance.

With its small size footprint, this highly embedded incarnation of ATCOM brings the capabilities of a respected and powerful PC-based software technology to any integrated imaging system. Compatible with a wide range of SMPTE digital video input standards, ATACAMA also supports analogue input sources and displays. With a web enabled GUI, or options for VMS or other host system integration via serial or Ethernet links, the user can also easily command the device. Settings can be saved across power cycles for ‘set and forget’ operation.
