ARLINGTON, Va., Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DRS Technologies, Inc., a

system integrators to perform custom lens calibration.

DRS Camera Control Software is a graphical user interface that simplifies
access to camera features and is included in the Tamarisk^® Product
Documentation Package made available to all customers who purchase a
Tamarisk^® module from the Network and Imaging Systems (NIS) division of DRS
Technologies. The custom lens calibration utility is integral to the camera
control software. By entering a single activation code, users have the ability
to calibrate for an unlimited number of custom lenses across the entire
Tamarisk^® product line. This exclusive access enables systems integrators to
compensate for unique lens and system effects when embedding a factory
calibrated thermal imaging module as part of a system or simply modifying the
module with a custom lens solution of their choice.

With this custom lens calibration software utility, the range of possible
optical solutions is expanded, allowing integrators greater flexibility to
meet challenging applications. Calibration of a custom lens solution can be
achieved in as little as five minutes per module, making multiple camera
systems and large installations viable. Additionally, v1.5 includes other
enhanced features, including a firmware upload tool to enable module upgrades
in the field; a pixel-marking tool to modify and store a custom pixel map, and
a "customer flash sector" (block of memory allocated for customer use) for
identifying custom camera configurations.

"We are confident that DRS' customers will appreciate the degree to which our
latest camera control software increases control over their product designs
and applications they bring to market," said NIS President Terry Murphy. "DRS
Camera Control Software Version 1.5 offers systems integrators a distinct
competitive edge, enabling much faster calibration times than other products
in this category and more freedom to customize their solutions to meet a broad
range of exciting applications."

DRS Camera Control Software v1.5 is compatible with Microsoft Windows 7
(64-bit/32-bit) and Windows XP (64-bit/32-bit) with SP3 operating systems.
