Device-ALab, Europe-based specialist of low noise infrared cores, released on June 11th SmartIR1M0E the smallest ever megapixel thermal camera core capable of 120 frames per second.
Featuring a power consumption close to 2 watts a casing section of only 52x48x25 cubic millimeters, a featherweight of 70 grams and a power consumption close to 2 watts, this remarkable DEVICE-ALAB product makes SWaP a reality for the most demanding applications. Daravan LY, Company CEO & Co-Founder comments: “Once again, our team took the best out of the features of the ULIS detector to fit to our clients expectations, especially those designing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, gimbals or thermal weapon sight who labored to integrate the pretty bulky megapixel existing solutions.” DEVICE-ALAB SmartIR1M0E also differentiates through its outstanding image quality and its embedded shutterless function. To answer to the various implementations in the market, this megapixel thermal core exists in both models: with or without mechanical shutter. As for frame rates, current range covers 9 to 120 Hz, either on USB, YCbCr or CameraLink™ interface. SmartIR1M0E is definitely the ideal candidate for long distance observation airborne or ground platforms: it enables detection and recognition in general surveillance as well as target acquisition and tracking in battlefield. Many additional functions and modes are available to the system designer, enabling further customization at equipment level, a characteristic shared across the whole SmartIR and IrLugX™ range. Beyond its SWaP, versatility and image performances, this camera is made in Europe. This means simplified export procedures for all equipment makers and integrators operating in European Union and so-called Friend Countries. DEVICE-ALAB is to demonstrate the SmartIR1M0E thermal core during the Eurosatory show on its booth #5AJ692.
