According to https://www.dvidshub.net/news/170866/usns-spearhead-southern-partnership-station-joint-high-speed-vessel-2015-completes-fleet-experimentation-period-two, the “……organic deployment of two unmanned aerial systems (UAS)……..”, one each by the US and Royal Singapore Navy, heralded not only a first for ASEAN military exercises, but also a rousing success. Capt. Bob Cepek is the SPS-15 mission commander. (“SPS-JHSV 15 is a U.S. Navy deployment focused on subject-matter expert changes with partner nation militaries and security forces.”) He said, "Although some of the technologies we employed are in regular use throughout the Fleet, we had the chance to employ them in new ways and that’s the advantage of…a controlled environment to test some of the great ideas floating around out there.” “We too think the use of UAVs and Hood Tech Vision imagers is a great idea”, said a Hood Tech Vision representative. “We’re pleased to play a part.”

When Hood Tech began producing 800-gm video-camera turrets in 1998, it enabled an entirely new class of small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Hood Technology Vision now designs and manufactures imaging and video processing systems at the highest level of the National Imagery Interpretability Rating Scale (NIIRS): Level 9. Hood Tech Vision matches embedded stabilization technology with electro-optical lenses that zoom up to 200X. This results in a field of view of 0.24 degrees, in payloads that weigh from less than one to six kg. Hood Tech Vision imagers consume as little as one-fifth the power common for such systems, increasing the power budget available to other sensors for Multi-INT missions. Designed for manned and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), boats, land vehicles, and towed and stationary mounts, the reliability and utility of Hood Tech’s daylight and thermal imaging products has been demonstrated during more than 900,000 hours of use in a variety of temperatures, humidity, dust, smoke, haze, and other environmental factors (http://www.hoodtechvision.com).

Dr. Andy von Flotow founded Hood Technology in Hood River, Oregon in 1993. Along with the design and manufacture of stabilized imaging systems, Hood Tech:

  • Develops, tests, and manufactures launch and retrieval systems for UAVs
  • Operates controlled launch and quiet wind tunnel test facilities
  • Monitors blade vibrations in industrial turbines and jet engines, including diagnostic methods that predict possible future turbine failures.
