New Technology from the World’s Oldest Searchlight Company

Carlisle & Finch Co. has launched their new SmartVIEW™ Technology.  SmartVIEW™ is a new powerful Microprocessor based Control System, which will allow all Carlisle & Finch Products (NightFINDER™ Systems and Standard Searchlight Products), to be easily controlled from any screen on board the ship, or from a remote PC anywhere in the world!


The NightFINDER™ is the combination of a high Intensity Searchlight and Night Vision Camera integrated onto the same Pan/Tilt Base, and Carlisle & Finch is the only company who offers this in the world today!  Carlisle & Finch’s SmartVIEW™ technology will allow this powerful product, as well as any of their standard searchlight products, to be seamlessly controlled through the Ship’s Glass Bridge.


Imagine a Captain below deck, powers up his Laptop PC, and via a wireless link, decides to take a look around the perimeter of the ship through the Night Vision Camera mounted to his NightFINDER™ Searchlight System.  He knows that if he sees an intruder, he can quickly flip on the searchlight, and temporarily blind the intruder, with pinpoint accuracy.  And if necessary, he could choose to “Strobe the Beam”... a technique used by Militaries around the world, where a high intensity “strobing light source” is used to disorient their adversaries.


In addition to the powerful network connectivity described above, SmartVIEW™ technology provides the following additional benefits as well:  Proportional-Speed Joystick, Joysticks which “intelligently switch” from searchlight to searchlight, an Ethernet Connection allowing digital control throughout the Ship’s IT Network, and remote Internet Control from any PC throughout the world.  Carlisle & Finch has targeted initial shipments to be delivered in 2nd Quarter of 2012.
