Teledyne FLIR launched the Boson+ with a thermal sensitivity of 20 mK or less, making it the most sensitive LWIR camera currently available. It shares the industry leading Boson thermal camera module SWaP. With identical mechanical, electrical and optical interfaces, it’s an instant upgrade that also incorporates updated image processing to provide improved sharpness and contrast for defense and commercial applications.
“Improved thermal sensitivity and automatic gain control (AGC) allow for more scene detail in the image for better detection, especially in low-contrast outdoor scenes,” said Dan. Walker, Vice President, Product Management, OEM Cores, Teledyne FLIR. “Enhanced thermal performance and proven industry-leading reliability make it the ideal uncooled thermal module for integration into unmanned platforms, security applications, handhelds, wearables, and viewfinders. thermal.”
The module features a redesigned 640 x 512 resolution, 12 micron pixel pitch detector with an NEDT of 20 mK or less that delivers significantly improved DRI performance. Improved video latency improves tracking, searcher performance, and decision support.
The shared serial interface and access to the company’s technical services team reduces development risk and shortens time to market. Designed for integrators, the device comes with a variety of lens options, comprehensive product documentation, an easy-to-use SDK, and a user-friendly GUI. Boson+ is dual-use and classified under the jurisdiction of the US Department of Commerce under EAR 6A003.b.4.a.
