The phenomenon heat haze (also known as heat shimmer) is a common problem when you want to have a clear sight over areas where heat ascend from the ground surface creating heat haze, which blurs the image.
To minimize heat haze disturbance in the image, CST has implemented Heat Haze Reduction as an on/off function in CST cameras, which gives a more stable image to easier identify an object.

New | ALaRs function in CST cameras
ALaRS is the abbreviation of Automatic Light and Resolution system, which optimises the light regulation and resolution, resulting in an improved image quality. CST has implemented ALaRs in all Citadel, Spectrel and Open Frame cameras with a 336 module, to provide our customers with the best possible image quality.
Above images are grabbed from tests without and with ALaRs in broad daylight.
Development of sensors is moving in two directions. One being a higher resolution with smaller pixels and the other is in the direction of more sensitive sensors. Together the two directions demands significantly improved automatic regulation circuits, in order to generate a sharp image from broad daylight down to low light conditions such as starlight, without reducing the details and colour reproduction.
CST has therefore invented the automatic regulation system ALaRs, to cope with the increasing high resolution and sensitive sensors to provide an optimised image quality.
So what is improved compared to normal image regulation?
The Open Frame DUAL/336 consist of two camera modules in one frame unit. Each camera module consist of a 560 TVL 1/3” camera for true day/night operation.
The Open Frame DUAL/336 is designed to operate in harsh environments, such as temperatures ranging from -40°C to +70°C and is therefore suitable for installation in e.g. areas with very warm climate without the expense of installing a cooling system.
Copenhagen Sensor technology's Board of Directors has appointed Carsten Høiberg as new CEO.
Carsten Høiberg has in recent years taken care of the planning and operation of the production, as well as managing the company's information technology and now takes over the supreme responsibility for the company.
Carsten is educated system administrator at Copenhagen Technical School.
CST's strategy remains unchanged and with the impressive results, as Copenhagen Sensor Technology's dedicated employees have created in recent years, there is no doubt that we are moving in the right direction.
That is why we need to continue along the same track as before. This means, among other things, that we must continue to lead the way with new initiatives that promote technological development.
Former CEO Søren Høiberg will continue to be affiliated with the company, as main shareholder, Board member and as CTO, and responsible for research, development and new product plans.
Carsten Høiberg is son of Søren Høiberg and will cooperate closely with CST's Board of Directors.
CST will be presenting ruggedized electro-optical solutions for long-range surveillance, situational awareness and for gun sighting systems on remote weapon stations. The camera solutions are available both as Open Frame for easy integration or in an IP65 sealed housing ready for outdoor installation.
You are always welcome to come and visit us in the Danish Pavilion at stand S7-265, or you can book a meeting prior to the exhibition by contacting us.
CST is pleased to introduce our Open Frame Camera solutions with integrated sensor, optics and camera controller, for our customers to easily integrate in their own EO-system. The Open Frame Cameras are working within the visible band, for operation during day and down to half moonlight conditions.
No compromise - our solutions are still ruggedized
All Open Frame cameras are designed to endure a high level of vibration and shock and are operational in temperatures ranging from -40°C to +70°C.
The mayor of Herlev, Thomas Gyldal Petersen, the second on the right in the picture, visited CST to increase the dialogue and collaborate more closely with CST among others.
It was a pleasant and fruitful visit where the mayor saw the production and got a closer look into how CST operates.
