 Project objective

The security market and owners of urban soft targets and critical infrastructure, require high definition surveillance systems to monitor safety and security. Our innovative solution meets these needs by providing a value for money, light sensitive sensor that produces high definition images of non-illuminated areas at night and in low light conditions. Current technology suffers from poor light conversion and sensitivity therefore, to see at night and in low light conditions, the scene needs to be illuminated. Our proposal is to improve sensitivity by using sensors with organic compounds that are sensitive to background sky radiation (1.5 micron). We will also develop Application Specific Integrated Circuits to process the sensor output. The novelty in our innovation is the integration of new technologies and the processing of data produced by a 1.5 micron organic sensor. This will deliver high resolution images at night and in low light conditions. Our solution will reduce the energy required to illuminate urban soft targets and critical infrastructure. Added benefits include a reduction in light pollution and that surveillance can be carried out in areas which have lighting restrictions. The development of a proven, production ready system is the ultimate aim of the project. In Phase 1 we will carry out a feasibility study to verify the technological, practical and economic viability of our proposal. Our feasibility study will consider the results of relevant European and International research. We plan to further develop our prototype and carry out a small-scale demonstration of our innovative solution. The results of Phase1 will inform the direction of our future development activity in Phase 2. Our plan for full commercialisation of the project will be to market the product initially in Europe and extending this globally. The Phase1 report will form the basis of the proposal for further development activity and identify any issues to be addressed in Phase2.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "STARLIGHT" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
