Billerica, MA (PRWEB) July 23, 2012
Rice Camera Technologies, a leading provider of innovative, reliable and superior-performing military camera solutions, infrared camera solutions, hyperspectral imager solutions and others advanced camera technologies to OEMs and defense customers in North America, announced today that it continues to see strong increase in demand, despite the US government’s overall cutbacks in federal spending.
“While the US government is reducing federal spending, they are still interested in obtaining the latest advanced technologies to protect America’s Warfighters,” commented Jay Rice, CEO of Rice Camera Technologies.
In the last 12 months, Rice Camera Technologies has been contracted to supply state-of-the-art infrared and hyperspectral technologies to multiple agencies and defense contractors, including The Department of Defense (DoD) and branches of the Army, Navy, and Air Force. The total value of these contracts is in excess of $1 million.
The technology that the DoD and military branches are investing in allows for the remote detection of invisible substances, such as toxic chemicals, gases, and solids. Using this technology, US soldiers can prevent or significantly reduce the risk of a chemical or biological attack. Other uses include the detection of illicit laboratories, the characterization of enemy vehicles, and the possibility of advanced US ballistics development.
Added Rice: “Customers appreciate our experience, large portfolio of imaging technology and our customer-focused approach to using imaging technology as a tool to solve problems. Rice Camera Technologies is proud to support the US government by supplying advanced imaging technology to accelerate research, and protect America’s Warfighters.”
