The new Neutrino LC is a SWaP+C optimized Mid Wave Infrared (MWIR) camera core, setting a new standard for size, weight, performance and cost. Designed for integrators, the Neutrino LC is compact and configurable, weighing in at only 380 grams with a steady power consumption of <4 watts, in a steady state @23 °C. Smaller, lighter, and more reliable than ever, the Neutrino LC delivers superb thermal imagery backed by industry-leading integration support from FLIR.

  • Compact and configurable VGA HOT HD+MWIR camera core

    The High Operating Temperature (HOT) FPA offers low power consumption, rugged construction and a wide operating temperature.

  • Designed for Integrators

    Small, light, and powerful, the Neutrino LC produces superb thermal imagery using a HOT 640 × 512 15µm FPA, while weighing in at only 370 grams.

  • Performance, Reliability, and Support

    The Neutrino LC offers increased reliability and low-vibration linear micro-cooler, faster time to image and FLIR reliability and support.
