inspect news 04 2017


Dear Readers,

Be sure to have an eye on your IT experts. They are the ones who are wanted by the German Minister of Defense. She likes to enlist them for the Bundeswehr, in order to build up a new unit for Cyber ​​Warfare. The Internet warriors should ensure that critical networks and communication work flawlessly throughout Germany. The soldiers should also be able to carry out cyber attacks. Not all details are known, but the project seems ambitious and promising. I am especially curious about the uniforms: camouflage in front of the PC makes little sense.

In addition, we would like to introduce you to two products worth a look. Baumer introduces new LX VisualApplets 3D cameras for high-performance laser triangulation and the two new infrared cameras from Optris can be calibrated for a temperature measuring range up to 1500 ° C.

Have fun reading
