Control Vision, Inc (CVI) design and manufacture innovative uncooled sensor modules and control systems in the visible and IR spectrum for customers in industry, science, and defense. Our specialty is to design low SWaP (Size, Weight and Price), low maintenance, easy to use and robust sensor systems for viewing and measuring objects of interest.

The product lines include optical sensor instruments that capture high quality images under extreme environments such as high luminosity, temperature, and vibration processes. They can perform real-time, non-destructive monitoring of metal casting, furnaces, laser welding, and thermal spray coating.
