Over time, many adapt
to advancing technology.
But only few lead the
way for future growth.
Over the past 50 years, FISBA has developed
numerous solutions where others have failed.
We owe much of our success to our skilled team
who execute every step from design to delivery.

Lance Riek is an engineer and co-founder of Sensory Labs. A machine vision integrator based in Bozeman, Mont.,
the company develops both traditional
machine vision applications and aerial
imaging systems for manned aircraft and
drones. For its aerial projects, Sensory
Labs often adapts machine vision cameras to the job, and so a background in
integrating cameras is helpful, according
Also important, no matter the task, is
the proper illumination. In discussing this,
Riek said, “Lighting is critical for all ma-
