IRCameras’ new CompactCore Series is now smaller, lighter and requires 25% less power consumption than our previous generation. With a choice of InSb, nBn or SLS focal plane arrays, CompactCore systems support applications in the lab or field. These cameras also cover a wide range of terrestrial, airborne and space applications including general imaging and spectroscopy.
IRCameras offers customization options that are tailored to the client’s unique testing requirements, further differentiating us from other suppliers. With resolution options of 640×512 or 1280×1024, our digital FPAs have zero electronics crosstalk between columns or rows – even at thousands of frames per second.
IRCameras also offers high efficiency cold filters to support your mission objectives including our 2-band CO2 notch cold filter, 3-band SWIR-MWIR and 5-band SWIR-MWIR filters which match atmospheric windows from 1000 nm to 5000 nm with >95% in-band transmission.
Cooler and dewars can be designed for space applications, and electronics qualified for low earth orbit. FPAs have been radiation tested and flown in earth orbit.
