Thermal imager sees more IR

09 April 2010

A cooled, thermal imager fusing the 1.3 to 5.5µ range can see both medium and short wave IR thermal emissions simultaneously. This unique feature range allows the system to see long distances through thick fog, snow, heavy rain, etc. It utilizes a 320 x 240 high performance InSb, FPA detector, powerful electronic processor and proprietary software algorithms.

The ability to merge short and medium wave IR gives more depth and information to the thermal image stream to provide clear images of buildings, ground data and other visual data enabling full situation awareness of the environment. The system is extremely sensitive with a NETD down to 0.005ºC ensuring stunning detail. The system has a very high acquisition rate up to  300 frames/second making it suitable for aircraft landing in adverse weather conditions and is FAA approved. These features also make it a first choice solution for large ships and tankers to assist in docking and situation awareness whilst at sea. Analogue and digital outputs are available, the digital being 14 Bit over fiber optics. Remote control of the system is RS422 or RS232 again over fiber optics. A built in anti-blooming mechanism cancels interference from irrelevant sources of light and heat.  A very high dynamic range ensures clear images of scenes containing extreme temperature differences.

This system can provide situational awareness in the most challenging and extreme environmental conditions helping to ensure the safety of all involved.
