ESPIAL 100 CONCEPT

CHALLENGE

Taking into account the typical electronic and mechanical requirements of microbolometers, this quick turn project had to meet specific potential exposure to 7.62 mm live fire during use on military vehicles.

PROCESS

Developing quick concepts that demonstrated directions that protected the camera component through concept sketching and 3d CAD modeling. Demonstration animations were created in Hypershot Move.

BENEFIT

Concept generated leveraged the existing camera enclosure reducing costs resulting in a turret design that adapted to existing parts.

 

RESULT

Reduced part count and costs equaled quicker time to market design.
