Teledyne FLIR has developed two additional mid-wave infrared (MWIR) imaging solutions for integrators developing ground- based intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) systems.
The Neutrino Ground ISR 300 and Ground ISR 420 offer high-performance imaging, long life, and a low switching cost through the combination of Teledyne FLIR’s best-in-class MWIR camera modules, continuous zoom (CZ) lenses and image processing with market-leading control electronics from InVeo Designs LLC.
To drive high system-level performance, the Neutrino Ground ISR series includes industry-adopted AgileCoreTM imaging electronics, long-life Linear Stirling coolers that provide a superior mean-time-to-failure of greater than 27,000 hours, and fully integrated CZ optics.
Developed and produced by Teledyne FLIR, formerly New England Optical Systems (NEOS), which joined FLIR in 2019, the CZ lenses provide a range of focal length options to maximize DRI. The series also features an industry-leading two-year warranty.
With the choice of either 640×512 or 1280×1024 thermal pixel resolution, the modules provide optimal thermal sensitivity while the zoom, focus, and boresight retention enable superior autofocus and focus-to- range.
They also feature common camera interfaces with 30Hz Camera Link or Gigabit Ethernet and 1080P30 HD-SDI or 720P60 HD-SDI to streamline development further.
All Neutrino Ground ISR products are manufactured in the USA, classified under US Department of Commerce jurisdiction as EAR 6A003.b.4.a, and are not subject to International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).
Customers also have access to a comprehensive software development kit (SDK), integration support, and documentation from the technical services team at Teledyne FLIR.
The Neutrino Ground ISR products are upgradable to operate Teledyne FLIR’s AI detection, tracking, and classification models and image signal processing (ISP) libraries for super-resolution, turbulence mitigation, and contrast enhancement.
“The Neutrino Ground ISR series incorporates multiple focal plane array (FPA) resolutions and CZ lens options, all with the same industry standard image processing and interface electronics, allowing for differing detection recognition and identification (DRI) requirements and affordability,” said Dan Walker, Vice President of Product Management, Teledyne FLIR. “As the most complete and versatile integrated MWIR solution yet for ground-based ISR systems, the newest addition to the Neutrino series delivers the performance, reliability, and support expected from Teledyne FLIR.”
