Today, Imperium is the sole provider of a hand-held ultrasound camera, the i600 Acoustocam™, which is a breakthrough in ultrasound imaging and provides higher resolution, easier interpretation, and a lower cost than conventional ultrasound technology. We have a full scale manufacturing operation to supply our technology into several industries and have built a strong resource base of engineering, production, and marketing experience.
Imperium offers a growing family of ultrasonic products for the NDI and medical imaging world. The company’s flagship product is the i600 Acoustocam™ which is a portable, handheld system for pulse-echo inspections. The i600 Acoustocam™ offers multi-angle shear-wave support with through-transmission applications. This system is configured in a variety of packages from water tanks to automated systems packaged by third party systems integrators. Imperium plans to offer a yoke based through-transmission camera called the i700 Acoustocam TT in the near future. The Acoustocam i600™ has an easy-to-use, touch-screen graphical user interface called, AcoustoVision™ that operates on top of Microsoft Windows®. Utilizing an open systems approach, such as Microsoft, allows Imperium to provide ease of upgrades to new features and functions without having to necessarily purchase new systems or hardware. This approach also permits Imperium to take advantage of third party applications that augment or enhance the systems usability.
The Acoustocam™ products allow manufacturers to instantly visualize a variety of subsurface faults. By implementing our solutions, our customers realize a significant improvement in production efficiency and cost reduction. The Acoustocam™ industrial imaging products instantly detect voids, delaminations, cracks, and corrosion in materials in both manufacturing and in-service environments.
Together with its clinical partners and advisory boards, Imperium is under development on a full line of medical imaging products for clinical use with DAV™. Our suite of Acoustocam™ imaging cameras* is focused on both imaging applications that current B-scan systems perform as well as expanded clinical uses that current ultrasound cannot satisfy.
