CST, Copenhagen Sensor Technology A/S is a privately held Danish company specialising in the design and manufacture of high-performance electro-optical solutions for demanding battlefield and surveillance applications.
Founded in 2001, CST has rapidly developed to a mature organisation, capable of serving a global customer base. In modern facilities on the outskirts of Copenhagen, Denmark, CST houses R&D, production, QA and sales and marketing functions. With roots in video, optics, electronics and software, the highly skilled staff at CST are committed to creating rugged, durable and innovative electro-optical solutions.
CST is certified to ISO 9001:2008, which applies to the whole process flow of design, development, manufacturing and testing. Furthermore, design and development activities operate in accordance with the ISO 10007:2003 configuration management standard.
CST's SPECTREL high-end surveillance systems are designed for use in military and high-end homeland security applications. The SPECTREL solutions are built around a highly sensitive CCD camera coupled with a ruggedised zoom lens, installed in a protective housing, designed to withstand harsh conditions. The camera and lens are bore-sighted so the object of interest stays in the picture even when the operator zooms in or out.
By mounting an array of cameras on the chassis of armoured personnel carriers, tanks or other tracked-vehicles, an unobstructed view over the near surroundings of the vehicle can be maintained with the hatches closed, providing safety for the entire vehicle crew and the material.
The CITADEL range of cameras includes a unique 170° field of view, providing undistorted panoramic imaging from dawn to dusk. All CITADEL cameras are designed to deliver high-performance images, even under the harshest conditions of shock and vibration and in temperatures ranging from -40°C - +70°C.
The MAGNEL series of integrated zoom cameras for Remote Weapon Systems is the perfect choice for customers demanding the highest performing electro-optic weapon guiding sub-systems, capable of operating under extreme conditions of temperature, shock and vibration.
The product all comply with MIL-Std 810F and can therefore be installed on both tracked and wheeled vehicles. The camera system is bore-sighted to achieve a precision of ±0.2 mrad over the complete zoom range and the full temperature from -40°C to +70°C.
CST is a company with a long tradition of working closely with its customers, identifying unmet needs and creating solutions with sustainable value for the users. With a strong R&D base at the headquarters in Denmark, CST is able to provide mechanical, optical, software and hardware customisations while meeting the toughest requirements for military, homeland security and high-end surveillance applications.
Whether it is just a ruggedised high-precision zoom lens or a camera, or a complete system comprising lens, camera and advanced video processing, CST can offer a fast-track design process.
