Meet the Team

Elliott Rittenberg


Elliott’s experience with infrared cameras began in 1977 when he co-founded Proscan, one of the first infrared inspection companies in the United States. He went on to serve in various capacities with a several well known infrared camera manufacturers. Over the years, he has served as a regional sales manager for Hughes Aircraft’s Industrial Products Division, Vice President of Sales for AGEMA Infrared, and Vice President of Sales for IRCameras LLC. Additionally, Elliott has represented AGEMA Infrared, Amber Engineering, Indigo Systems and CEDIP as an independent sales representative. Elliott has co-authored a number of technical papers describing advances in infrared technology, including “New Indium Antimonide-Based IR Detectors Surpass Previous Limitations and Advances in Detectors” and “HOT IR Sensors Improve IR Camera Size, Weight, and Power.” Elliott’s combination of in-depth application expertise, along with his extensive product knowledge, allows him to tailor solutions for a wide variety of infrared imaging challenges. Away from work, Elliott enjoys cycling and spinning classes and is a member of the Rotary Club of Westborough where he volunteers to help bring positive change to his community.

Mike Larson

Vice President

For more than 25 years, Mike has introduced customers to a wide range of leading-edge infrared sensors and enjoys helping them to decide which is the best technical solution for their application. Over the years, Mike has worked with many industry leaders, including Agema, Inframetrics, Amber, Indigo, CEDIP, and IRCameras. Having been in the infrared industry since 1993, Mike has witnessed tremendous improvements in the technology. From scanning SPRITE detectors to PtSi, followed by the transition to InSb and MCT arrays and now today with the small pixel micro-bolometers and H.O.T. nBn and Type II SLS sensors, Mike is able to help solve application challenges he never thought possible. Mike enjoys being at the forefront of technology and working with high frame rate, high definition cameras, as well as the new generation of hyperspectral imaging systems. When he’s not introducing customers to the latest infrared imaging technologies, Mike enjoys golf, hunting, fishing and generally loves being outdoors.

Charley Gilbert

Vice President

Charley has worked in production management, research and development, operations, and sales starting in 1987. His career started in production and in engineering as a tech with night vision image intensifiers at Varian Associates. As an applications engineer, he learned to integrate generation III night vision tubes to CCTV cameras, which lead to a sales position with Cohu Electronics. Charley achieved increasingly responsible sales and leadership positions. While helping to guide the companies’ direction, he pushed to add thermal imaging to their product line. This led to more than two decades of thermal imaging experience. Charley has imaging application experience with aerospace, defense, traffic management, security, surveillance, science research, and machine vision. Charley likes to play golf, fish, cook, and create art in a variety of mediums.
