DRASS and STARLIGHT ITALIA Collaboration: Advanced Optronic Systems for Diving and Beyond

12 February 2024In light of the important technological success achieved with new generation compact optronic periscopes, DRASS and STARLIGHT ITALIA consolidate their cooperation with an agreement that positions STARLIGHT ITALIA as one of the strategic partners of DRASS Group.

DRASS’ Head of Electronic and SW Engineering, Eng. Luca Biasci, comments: “Drass’ business line of optronic sensors has at its core the technology of our partners Starlight, which we have integrated with innovative signal processing algorithms based on neural networks and our experience in pressure-resistant systems. This project, currently unique for its performance, and initially created for underwater vehicles, is far exceeding all expectations”.

Eng. Roberto Longo, CEO of STARLIGHT ITALIA declares: “The close collaboration between Starlight Italia and Drass represents an excellent example of synergistic effort between companies in terms of hi-tech innovation and at the same time offers the opportunity to implement integrated solutions for the development of latest generation multispectral sensors based on matrix hybridization. The objective is to achieve consistently high levels of performance in the field of vision systems technology. Continuous development of these technologies is the secret to achieving a consistently high level of performance whilst always keeping in step with what the specific field of application requires. By providing our expertise and experience, we make a significant contribution to the development of the next generation of underwater platforms. We are enthusiastic about this all-Italian partnership, which represents a challenge won and at the same time still to be won”.
