InView Technology Corporation, a world-leading developer of innovative computational imaging products, today announced a strategic investment and development agreement from In-Q-Tel (IQT), the strategic investment firm that identifies innovative technology solutions to support the missions of the U.S. Intelligence Community.
InView's business is built on proprietary Compressive Sensing technology that allows high-performance cameras and hyperspectral imagers to be built using greatly simplified detector architectures. Compressive Sensing technology substitutes innovative math for complex electronic components, allowing cameras and hyperspectral imagers to be built at lower cost and with higher resolution. The technology is especially compelling for those wavelengths where it is difficult to build cost-effective, high-resolution focal plane arrays.
"InView has demonstrated innovative camera technologies," said Syd Ulvick, Vice President, Physical and Biological Technologies practice at IQT. "The unique computational imaging architecture provides tremendous opportunities to develop cutting-edge products."
"We are delighted to have IQT as a strategic investor and partner," said Bob Bridge, Founder and CEO of InView. "InView has an innovative technology platform that works across wavelengths including ultra violet, visual, infrared, and terahertz. We are pleased that working with IQT will open the door to opportunities to tailor our technology to meet the needs of the U.S. Intelligence Community."
