US digital surveillance cameras to be used by Thai military


Thailand's army will use digital surveillance cameras made by a Rocky Hill company to fight crime, drug trafficking and terrorism in the southeast Asian nation.

Contractor Aria International Inc. purchased five high-definition, infrared cameras from Axsys Technologies Inc. in Rocky Hill that will be mounted aboard the Royal Thai Army's helicopters, Aria said.

Camera prices were not disclosed.

Aria International, based in Arlington, Va., has a $9.7 million contract to equip and train the Thai army to use surveillance and communications technology in its homeland security.

Axsys is studying strategic options, including a sale of all or part of the company.
