FLIR Tau SWIR Miniature Camera Core for a Variety of OEM Applications

The Tau SWIR miniature camera is part FLIR's Tau series of advanced miniature cameras and is designed for a wide range of OEM applications, such as night vision, electro optical payloads, UAV/UGV sensor sockets and weapon sights.

The Tau SWIR 15XRH offers excellent shortwave infrared imaging performance from 500 to 1700nm spectrum (50% RSR from 800 to 1700nm). It integrates a high-resolution (640 × 512) indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) 25-micron pixel pitch focal plane array that exhibits high frame rates (in subwindowing mode), variable exposure control, high quantum efficiency, and almost zero image lag. Power consumption is less than 2W (at 20°C case temperature).

The camera provides excellent image quality in all light levels and includes nonuniformity correction and advanced automatic gain control. It weighs only 130g (with the M24 lens mount) and measures 1.5" x 1.5" x 1.9" and hence is suitable for small UAV/UGV and battery powered viewers.
