Due to its size, weight, and low power consumption, this SWIR camera is perfect for integration into unmanned aircraft (UAVs), handheld, helmet, or weapon mounted surveillance devices, and any ground/maritime imaging system with strict low weight and low power consumption requirements
The GA640C-15A SWIR camera features a volume of less than one cubic inch, a 26g weight (without the lens), and 1.5W power consumption. The camera features 640 x 512 pixel resolution with a 15-micron pitch. The Camera Link® digital output offers plug-and play, 12-bit imagery for viewing, digital processing and/or transmission. The uncooled SWIR detector images in real-time video (30Hz), daylight to low light, through smoke, haze, and fog conditions. It operates without temperature stabilization using non-uniformity corrections (NUC) parameterized over temperatures. It also provides on-board automatic gain control (AGC), for hands-free operation.
Goodrich’s SWIR C-platform model operates from 0.9 to 1.7 micron spectral range; the optional near infra-red (NIR) camera model extends the spectral response to include the range from 0.7 to 1.7 microns. The camera operates in a wide temperature range from -35 degrees C to +71 degrees C.
