WASHINGTON, Nov. 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ICx Technologies (Nasdaq: ICXT), a developer of advanced technology solutions for homeland and military security, announced today that its ICx Imaging Systems unit has won a $1.13 million award for delivery of DefendIR infrared cameras for use by the U.S. Army.

The Army will use the DefendIR units to support Military Operations on Urban Terrain (MOUT) training. The cameras use VisionSense(TM) technology, which blends the thermal image with the visible image, enabling commanders to better observe and evaluate MOUT training exercises.

DefendIR is well-suited for MOUT training and evaluation," said Nirav Pandya, General Manager of ICx Imaging Systems. "The setting on the camera can fuse, or overlay, the two images-thermal and visible-so users can get all necessary information in a single image."

The ICx DefendIR is an industry-leading, mid-range thermal imager that can see in complete darkness and through a multitude of environmental conditions including smoke, rain, snow, dust, and dense fog. Proprietary VisionSense technology combines video feeds from both a visible light (CCD) camera and the Defend IR, offering user-controlled customized mixing and merging of the two visual sources. This allows operators to penetrate glare and see through windows, glass, or water, which can be problematic for conventional thermal cameras.
