Uncooled, Longwave Infrared OEM Thermal Camera Core

  • Made in the USA, and ITAR-free, the Boson longwave infrared (LWIR) OEM thermal camera module set the standard for size, weight, power, and performance (SWaP).
  • Utilizing Teledyne FLIR’s advanced image processing and several industry-standard communication interfaces, Boson enables applications from firefighting to unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), security, and automotive development kits, all for as little as 600 mW.
  • The 12 µm uncooled detector comes in two resolutions – 640 × 512 or 320 × 256 – and multiple frame rate options.
  • Radiometric models offer absolute temperature measurement.
  • With multiple lens configurations also available, Boson offers the widest range of LWIR models from Teledyne FLIR and the most flexibility to integration programs.
  • The easy-to-use Boson SDK, user-friendly GUI, and comprehensive product integration documentation further simplify OEM integrated into higher-level systems.
  • For a plug-and-play sensitivity upgrade, the new Boson+, provides an industry-leading NeDT of <20 mK.
