Fairfield, NJ (PRWEB) April 23, 2011
Sofradir EC, Inc. will be demonstrating their new ATOM 1024 High Resolution Uncooled Thermal Imaging Camera at the SPIE Defense, Security and Sensing Symposium in Orlando, FL, on April 26-28, 2011. The ATOM 1024 (http://www.ircores.com) is the first commercially available uncooled XGA camera available today. Incorporating ULIS’s advanced silicon microbolometer technology, the ATOM 1024 is a true high definition (XGA format) thermal imaging camera specially designed for delivering high resolution images and optimal thermal sensitivity for use in a wide variety of applications.
Because it is based on a large 1024 x 768 microbolometer detector array, the camera delivers a significant improvement in image resolution and detection range. Thanks to the use of the new 17 micron pixel pitch technology microbolometer detector arrays, the array size is quite similar to existing 25 micron pitch VGA systems despite the use of two and a half times increase in the number of pixels. This “double benefit” permits the detector’s integration in to the compact ATOM 1024, delivering the increased performance without compromises in camera size, weight, power or sensitivity. Other performance specifications are outstanding, including excellent thermal sensitivity (<50mk), 30 Hz XGA frame rate (60 Hz for VGA output format), and low power consumption (<1.7W).
The ATOM 1024 will be demonstrated with a variety of infrared objective lenses designed to deliver optimum performance for 17µm pitch sensors. The small Atom 1024 camera is the ideal choice for a wide range of military and COTS thermal imaging systems including handheld, ground vehicle, and airborne EOIR platforms.
