High Performance, Uncooled, LWIR OEM Thermal Camera Module

  • Made in the USA, and ITAR-free, the Boson+ sets the standard for longwave infrared (LWIR) OEM thermal camera performance and size, weight, and power (SWaP).
  • It features an industry-leading thermal sensitivity of less than or equal to (≤)20 mK and an upgraded automatic gain control (AGC) filter delivering dramatically enhanced scene contrast and sharpness.
  • Lower video latency enhances tracking, seeker performance, and decision support.
  • Radiometry will be available in the second quarter of 2024 on 640 x 512 and 320 x 256 resolution models.
  • Boson+ maintains the widely-deployed Boson mechanical, electrical, and optical interfaces enabling a plug-and-play upgrade.
  • New models also include factory-integrated continuous zooms lenses to streamline development and maximize performance.
  • With customer-selectable USB, CMOS, or MIPI video interfaces, it is easier than ever to integrate Boson+ into a wider range of embedded processors from Qualcomm, Ambarella, and more.
  • The user-friendly Boson SDK, GUI, and comprehensive product integration documentation further simplify OEM integration.
  • Enhanced thermal performance and industry-leading reliability provide low-risk development, making Boson+ ideal for unmanned ground vehicles (UGV), unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), wearables, security applications, handhelds, and thermal sights.
