The FLIR RS8500 MWIR infrared camera system is a high-performance thermal camera and infrared telescope combined in a single weatherproof housing, specifically designed for long-range tracking and measurement applications including military range, aerospace, and outdoor research. Built around a high-resolution 1280 × 1024 midwave indium antimonide detector with the ability to deliver data up to 180 frames per second, the RS8500 provides 24% more pixels and a 46% faster frame speed than the previous model. Multiple simultaneous data and video output options allow the camera to be easily integrated into most data acquisition systems.
