Teledyne FLIR has introduced the Neutrino SX12 ISR1200, the first model in the new Neutrino Ground ISR series of high-performance, Medium-Wave Infrared (MWIR) camera modules with integrated Continuous Zoom (CZ) optics. 

The HD MWIR system combines a Teledyne FLIR MWIR camera module and 120mm to 1,200mm CZ optics with industry-adopted imaging electronics from InVeo Designs LLC to provide a best-in-class Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) solution with low-switching-cost for defense and industrial integrators.

Based on Teledyne FLIR Focal Plane Array (FPA) technology, near diffraction-limited optics, and a long-life linear Stirling cooler with 25,000 hour MTTF, the Neutrino SX12 ISR1200 offers 1280×1024 resolution with 12µm pixel size. It also features dual-parallel outputs using a 60Hz Camera Link base with 1080P30 HD-SDI or 720P60 HD-SDI, ideal for tracking, turbulence mitigation, and artificial intelligence. The SX12 ISR1200 is a turnkey system that is designed for integration with ground-based, long-range ISR, perimeter surveillance, border surveillance, and counter-Unmanned Aerial Systems (c-UAS).

The long focal length CZ lens provides autofocus, focus, and boresight retention through zoom, and it is factory optimized for each integrated system. The lens, the MWIR camera module, and imaging electronics are all designed and manufactured in the United States.       

“The Neutrino Ground ISR series joins the Neutrino IS series of MWIR camera modules with integrated CZ optics, offering defense and industrial integrators shortened time-to-market and reduced project risk thanks to its familiar imaging components and off-the-shelf design and delivery,” said Dan Walker, vice president, product management, Teledyne FLIR. “All Neutrino series systems are classified under U.S. Department of Commerce jurisdiction as EAR 6A003.b.4.a and are not subject to International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).”
