The VGA-resolution Neutrino LC and newly-released SXGA-resolution Neutrino SX8 provide best-in-class MWIR imagery and data in a small, lightweight package. Based on Teledyne FLIR’s High Operating Temperature (HOT) FPA technology and linear micro-cooler, SWaP series OEM camera modules are designed for ruggedized products requiring long life, low-power consumption, and quiet, low-vibration operation. Both are ideal for small gimbals and airframes, handheld devices, security cameras, targeting devices, and asset monitoring applications.

The Neutrino SWaP Series is simply the best technical solution available. With nearly off-the-shelf delivery (ITAR free), industry-leading two-year warranty, real price competitiveness and well-known product support and product reliability, it also offers the lowest risk solution. The Neutrino SWaP is an OEM camera module that is intended to be integrated into a higher level system.
