ARLINGTON, Va., July 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DRS Technologies Inc., a Finmeccanica Company, announced the winners of its second annual Student Infrared Imaging Competition, a contest that allows students to showcase their innovative ideas using thermal imaging technologies.  The awards ceremony was held at the DRS facilities in Melbourne, Florida.

The winners for the "Best Overall Project" were, Will Warren, Daniel Yang and Yuncong Chen, students from the University of California San Diego for their "3D Thermal RGB Mapping for Firefighting Robots" project.  The team received the $10,000 grand prize for its winning project.

Students from the University of Memphis took second place with their project, "Forgery-proof Identification Using Sweat Gland Distribution."  The team received a $2,000 prize.

The judges awarded third place to a team from the Missouri University of Science and Technology for its entry of a "New Method to Identify Counterfeit Products Using Infrared Cameras," earning them a $1,000 prize.

DRS Technologies' Chief Operating Officer, Terry Murphy reflected on the momentum of the program as he presided over the awards ceremony. "We are encouraged by the growth of this competition," said Murphy. "From an engineering perspective, we've seen progressively advanced applications of infrared imaging. The technical caliber of the entries for 'Best Overall Project' was remarkable. However, we are also enthusiastic about the addition of the 'Most Viral Video' category to the competition that inspired an artistic adaptation of thermal sensing and imaging technology. These new interpretations should serve to further extend the knowledge base for infrared applications to a larger audience."

Select students at participating universities were provided with Tamarisk®320 thermal imaging cameras, from the Network and Imaging Systems division of DRS, with the objective being to develop projects that portray the most innovative use of infrared imaging.
