' Zeus Night-Vision Camera for use in its product portfolio of nano-composite
vessels. This is the first OceanView product chosen by the boatbuilder.
"We are excited about the new future of lightweight
vessels that take advantage of the latest in materials and systems
technology," says Mike Nemeth, director of commercial and defense
applications at Zyvex in an Oceanview press release.
"The extreme nature of this vessel and its 24/7
surveillance characteristics underscore the quality and reliability of
OceanView cameras," adds Mike Bader OceanView CEO. "We are
pleased to be part of this project and others like it in the future."
The Zeus Camera has 2-axis, fiber-optic stabilization.
This system takes thermal imaging to the apex of night vision
capabilities. The Zeus also includes object tracking, enabling it to lock
on another vessel, a man overboard, aircraft, debris or a buoy and keep that
object in the center of the picture. HD is an available option for the
Seattle-based Zyvex Marine, a division of Zyvex Technologies,
says it is building the next generation of vessel platforms. Zyvex offers
lightweight carbon nano-composite vessels in both manned and unmanned
configurations. Zyvex developed the first nano-composite vessel, a 54'
unmanned surface vessel prototype that the company says set new standards for
an unmanned vessel in the areas of range, speed, sea keeping and payload.
