Customer Introduction

This leading aerospace company designs sophisticated products for the military as part of its offerings. It was designing a wearable night vision camera suitable for military operations.


  • Strict size, weight, and power requirements

    The device must be small, lightweight, and as low power as possible.
  • Device used a combination of an infrared camera and a low-light camera to provide enhanced night vision.

    The night vision camera will process and synchronize two high-speed signals, even though the resolution of the two images is not the same.
  • Complex FPGA design

    An FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) is excellent at high-speed parallel processing and will be designed to handle the video processing for the night vision camera.
  • Coordinate work with the mechanical team

    Work must be coordinated with the mechanical design team to ensure a compact design and effective heat dissipation.
  • Stringent requirements as a military device

    The device will pass the stringent military requirements.


The company partnered with Voler Systems to leverage its vast expertise in wearable electronic design and sensor technology, including FPGA and video processing.

Voler Systems engineers provided the following solutions to develop the electronic design:

  • Created a detailed FPGA board design from a high-level description.
  • Formulated firmware for board functionality testing to enable the customer to finalize firmware development.
  • Collaborated with the mechanical design team to meet the overall electrical, mechanical, and environmental requirements.

Results & Benefits

  • All specific size, weight, and power requirements were met successfully, demonstrating the processing speed necessary to merge the two high-speed video signals.
  • An integrated approach between mechanical and electrical designs allowed for effective thermal cooling management of the FPGA, even under temperature extremes of military applications.
  • The device exceeded all military-grade environmental and electrical specifications.


The successful completion of this wearable night vision camera inspires us at Voler Systems to continue to innovate, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in electronic design.

“Choosing Voler Systems was a game-changer. Their innovative approach and successful design affirmed they were the right choice for this project.”
