The FLIR RS8500 MWIR camera is a high-performance thermal science camera combined with an infrared telescope in a single weatherproof housing for long range tracking and measurement. The imaging system is built around a high-resolution 1280 x 1024 midwave indium antimonide detector that can deliver data at up to 180 frames per second.
The RS8500 provides 24% more pixels and a 46% faster frame speed than the previous model. The 120–1200 mm continuous metric zoom lens provides focal length and focus position data at every lens location which can be embedded along with other critical camera metadata in the header of each frame with TSPI-accurate timestamping. This makes the RS8500 an ideal thermal camera solution for military range, aerospace, and outdoor research applications.
