Raptor Photonics, the leading company in SWIR and Visible SWIR cameras is adding a new product to it’s range. The OWL SW1.7 CL-640 is a rugged, high sensitivity digital VIS-SWIR camera. Using a 640 x 512 InGaAs sensor from SCD the OWL enables high sensitivity imaging from 0.4µm to 1.7µm. The 15µm x 15µm pixel pitch enables high resolution VIS-SWIR images.
Available with a 14 bit CameraLink output, the OWL 640 will run from 10 to 120Hz enabling high speed digital video with intelligent auto AGC. This new feature On-board Automated Gain Control (AGC) will enable clear video in all light conditions. The OWL 640 also features an on-board intelligent 3 point NUC which will provide the highest quality images.
As with all Raptor cameras the OWL 640 is an ultra compact, low power (<5W) camera which makes it ideal for hand-held, mobile or airborne systems. It is also very rugged, and has no fan enabling integration into UAV, handheld or any Electro-Optic system.
