High Performance, Uncooled, Longwave Infrared (LWIR) OEM Thermal Camera Module

Made in USA, the Boson+ sets a new industry 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 in all environments. Improved video latency enhances tracking, seeker performance, and decision support. With an optimized 12 µm 640 x 512 focal plane array (FPA) and AGC, Boson+ is now even more the go-to thermal camera module for defense, industrial, and commercial integrators.

Boson+ maintains the widely deployed and real-world-proven Teledyne FLIR Boson mechanical, electrical, and optical interfaces allowing plug-and-play with existing designs. The easy-to-use Boson SDK, user-friendly GUI, and comprehensive product integration documentation further simplify OEM integrated into a new system designs. Enhanced LWIR thermal performance and industry-leading reliability provide low-risk development, making Boson+ the ideal dual use thermal camera module for integration into unmanned ground vehicles (UGV), unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), wearables, security applications, handhelds, and thermal sights.

PathFindIR II

Driver Vision Enhancement System for Today’s Vehicles

PathFindIR II is a powerful thermal night vision system that helps you clearly see road hazards in total darkness, and it will alert you to nearby vehicles, people, and animals. Headlights typically illuminate about 450 feet straight ahead, but PathFindIR II detects heat without a need for light, allowing you to see up to four times farther down the road. You’ll have visibility through dust, smoke, or fog, and better capability to avoid an accident.

Multiple configurations are available for all PathFindIR II models including animal detection (AD), pedestrian detection (PD), and logo branding.
