Ventus Compact MK2

Ventus Compact is a cooled mid-wave infrared camera that combines the functionality and quality of our larger Ventus cameras, but in a low-SWaP package designed for integration into space-constrained systems and UAV/UAS.

The Ventus Compact mid-wave infrared camera is designed specifically for space-constrained integrations in airborne, handheld, and other low-SWaP applications. The system features an advanced, 20-275 mm continuous zoom optic, one-touch autofocus, advanced image processing, and a unified easy-to-integrate software architecture. Ventus Compact is uniquely equipped with advanced ‘NUC Through Zoom’ calibration for consistent imagery throughout the zoom range.

Outputs include IP and HDMI, as well as 16-bit CameraLink and USB 3.0 digital output. In-camera automatic gain control and advanced digital enhancement allow for flexible and adaptable thermal imaging performance.
