LWIR Uncooled Thermal Camera Core Products

FLIR's thermal camera cores are designed for easy and efficient integration into higher level assemblies and platforms. Original equipment manufacturers (OEM's) design and integrate FLIR's core modules into systems that are manufactured and sold under their own company name or product brand.



Muon Muon™

Muon™ is a calibrated uncooled thermal camera subassembly developed for thermal product OEMs to integrate with their own image processing, packaging and optical solutions. A thermal camera “engine” perfectly optimized for size, weight and power (SWaP), Muon only requires standard imaging device power and communication protocols to generate corrected CMOS video out.
