Chess Dynamics Launches the Vision4ce Mini CHARM: A Powerful Image Processor for Size-Constrained Applications

APRIL 22, 2024

Chess Dynamics has launched the Vision4ce Mini CHARM, a new image processor specifically designed for size and weight-constrained applications, such as drones and small tactical vehicles.

The Mini CHARM offers a powerful and flexible solution for electro-optical system manufacturers and integrators seeking advanced image processing capabilities in a compact footprint. Its compact design and efficient operation make it ideal for integration into small, lightweight camera systems, offering a leading image processing capability to space-constrained platforms, particularly airborne applications.


The Mini CHARM’s flexible software framework supports a wide range of image processing tasks, including AI-based target detection, tracking and classification. The real-time, low-latency processing enables rapid decision-making and accurate performance in critical situations.


"The Mini CHARM leverages the proven performance and reliability of the CHARM product range, delivering these capabilities in a miniaturised form factor," said Steve Hogg, Director of Image Processing at Chess Dynamics. "This new product empowers manufacturers and integrators to develop next-generation camera systems that meet the demanding requirements of modern applications."


The launch expands and complements the existing Vision4ce CHARM product line of image processors. Chess Dynamics' extensive experience in developing the Vision4ce branded real-time image processors for electro-optical systems enabled the development of this miniaturised solution. With a team bringing decades of experience in land, sea, and air applications, Chess Dynamics offers a comprehensive suite of products and support services to meet the evolving needs of the industry.
