Raptor Offers World’s First ½” VGA VIS-SWIR Sensor for Under $10K

Published: 19 Jul 2020 by

Raptor Photonics Owl-640T VIS-SWIR VGA sensorRaptor Photonics has launched the world’s first ½”/ VGA sensor with 10mm VIS-SWIR (visible to short-wave infrared) response. The InGaAs-based, 640×512 resolution camera features a 10µm x 10µm pixel pitch and is ideal for small unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and unmanned vehicle EO (electro-optical) gimbals.

The SWaP (size, weight and power)-optimised, rugged Owl 640 T has less than 50 electrons readout noise, with a high intra-scene dynamic range of 69dB that enables simultaneous capture of bright and dark portions of a scene. An onboard thermometric cooler stabilizes the sensor temperature without the need for a fan.

Raptor is currently offering a special deal on the Owl 640 T, with volume pricing starting from $9,999. To find out more, visit the Raptor Photonics website.
