IBM Weather Graph

Global High-Resolution Atmospheric Forecasting System

On January 11th, IBM announced that they will soon be introducing the world’s highest-resolution global weather forecasting model later in 2019. Known as the IBM Global High-Resolution Atmospheric Forecasting System (GRAF), the model will be the first of its kind with hourly-updating capabilities, with the ability to predict something as small as a thunderstorm virtually […]

Robotic Surgery

Robotic Surgery

From prostate surgery to gallbladder procedures to heart surgeries, robots are already mainstays in the operating room.  Robotic surgery is currently being performed using the da Vinci™ surgical system, which is a unique set of technologies that include a camera, a magnified screen, a console and specialized ‘arms’ for holding the surgical instruments.

Hyperspectral Camera

Underwater Hyperspectral Camera

A new underwater hyperspectral camera has been deployed on Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV) for a more automated identification, mapping and monitoring of the sea floor around the world.

High-Resolution Images

High-Resolution Images From Space

In 2016, The European Space Agency’s Mars orbiter sent back the first high-resolution images of the Red Planet, and the view is incredible.

Construction Drones

Construction Drones

There are drones for package delivery; drones for search and rescue; drones for surveillance; drones for photography. Now, another application has emerged, and continues to take steps getting it closer to reality: construction drones.

High Resolution Lens

High-Resolution Lens Assemblies

UKA specializes in designing and manufacturing high quality, precision lenses. We have several high-resolution lens assemblies from which you can choose depending on the specific parameters that would be the most suitable to meet the requirements with respect to image size and quality.

Hi Resolution Cameras Track Neurons In The Brain

The neurons in your brain are those fine, branching tendrils that travel great distances within the human body to form connections with target cells. Researchers have been looking for technology that can trace those connections so they can gain a better understanding of how the brain processes information. Scientists from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute […]

Golfer In Action

High Resolution Cameras Capture Athletes In Action

No matter how closely an athletic trainer monitors his athlete, he cannot possibly see, with the precision and speed, what a high resolution camera can. Because of this, digital cameras with high resolution lenses and CMOS sensors allow the athletes and their trainers to scrutinize, in great detail, how the athlete is performing and how […]

Auto Parts

High Resolution Cameras Inspect Auto Parts

Today’s state of the art technologies allow auto manufacturers greater control over the quality standards of the automotive parts on the manufacturing line. High resolution imaging processing systems and machine vision systems are crucial to quality control processes requiring custom optical lenses to assist in the process. These inspection and visual control systems are used […]

Camera Lenses Help Viewers See NASCAR Action

Sitting home in our easy chairs we can enjoy the thrills that come from a NASCAR race – up close and personal. The reason for this is because of the lenses that the car-mounted cameras use. From the fast-rushing landscape to rear bumper shots to near misses and close-ups of the driver, lost in concentration […]
