Tonbo Imaging designs, builds and deploys advanced imaging and sensor systems to sense, understand and control complex environments. Modern day battlefields, critical infrastructures, unmanned reconnaissance, transport vehicles driving in the dark – all offer very challenging environments for effective visualization. Obscurants like smoke, dust, fog and camouflage make observation and navigation very difficult. Tonbo Imaging offers a suite of solutions that address critical market needs in military reconnaissance, critical infrastructure security and transportation safety.The company’s offerings consist of sophisticated imaging products, custom design applications and intellectual property cores that can be licensed by OEM’s and systems integrators.
Tonbo Imaging leverages innovative designs in micro-optics, lower power electronics and real-time vision processing to design imaging systems for real world applications. Traditional systems across different imaging spectrums have relied on a single aperture principle with the burden of image formation placed excessively on the optics. Tonbo’s technology balances front end analog processing with sophisticated digital image processing to support the realization of light weight, low power imaging platforms across visible, mid wave IR and long wave IR spectrums.
Tonbo Imaging is a spinout of Sarnoff Corporation and Stanford Research International. The team has rich experience on a range of battlefield modernization technologies, immersive surveillance and strategic electronics for military applications. The company principals and management have global experience being principal investigators for defense and aerospace programs.
