The OBSETECH FT-Core is a lightweight and compact uncooled LWIR thermal imaging core designed for UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle), UGV (unmanned ground vehicle) and robotics system integrators. It provides a range of advanced image processing features including non-uniformity correction (NUC), digital filter noise reduction (DNR), digital detail enhancement (DDE), high-temperature alerts and fire alarm function.

Featuring a low-SWaP design, excellent impact and vibration resistance, and integrated autofocus, it supports both analog and digital video output and is available in three different resolution options - 640×512, 1024x800 or 1280×1024. Multiple lens sizes are available on request.
