BAE System has developed a thermal camera core for security, surveillance, automotive and thermography systems customers to capture videos and images through tough environments.
The MIR640 core is designed to take frames at a rate of 60 hertz and is built with a 17-micron, 640-by-480 pixel camera resolution that is meant to work in fog, smoke and dust, BAE Systems said Wednesday.
Christian Rodriguez, business development lead at BAE, said the camera core aims to help users navigate harsh environments and detect fine motions while preserving video capture quality.
The MIR640 is the latest in BAE' MicroIR camera core suites and the company built the camera core with sensor, image processing, USB controls and video interfaces incorporated into a 1.7-cubic-meter module.
The core can also shift frame rates between 60Hz and 30Hz, BAE says.
