Eurosatory 2016: Qioptiq's New Thermal Cameras

On Stand L693, in Hall 5, in the UK Pavilion, Qioptiq, an Excelitas Technologies Company, shows new entries in its family of ruggedised thermal cameras for ground based surveillance, vehicle and naval platforms.

The JaguIR Medium Wave Infrared (MWIR) Continuous Zoom Camera is the latest ruggedised solution for challenging, long range requirements, according to Qioptiq. This robust solution combines the latest in detector technology with world class optics. Features include: x13.5 Continuous Optical Zoom, Man Detection >11km, and HOT options available. Its larger brother, the JaguIR–L is a longest range, ruggedised solution for tough environmental requirements. Its rapid, continuous zoom function allows surveillance of vast areas, whilst also achieving impressive identification ranges with Man Detection >17km.

The new CougIR12 and CougIR17 Long Wave Infrared (LWIR) Continuous Zoom Cameras offer competitive range performance in a reduced envelope for requirements with tight space constraints. It is ruggedised and optimised for the latest generation of 17μm and 12μm uncooled focal plane arrays (including HD formats). Compatible with all commonly used sensor engines. Features include x6 Continuous Optical Zoom, Man Detection >6.5km, and FOV Sensor Specific.

Qioptiq's family of well known cameras include the PanthIR12 and PanthIR17 LWIR Continuous Zoom Cameras, which are the next generation of ruggedised continuous zoom lenses. The PanthIR optical module is optimised for the latest generation of 17μm and 12μm uncooled focal plane arrays (including HD formats). Compatible with all commonly used sensor engines.

The company furthermore features its PumIR LWIR Dual Field of View Camera, which is Qioptiq's smallest camera in the thermal range. Its dual field of view zoom lens assembly is compatible with the latest generation of 17μm and 12μm uncooled focal plane arrays. PumIR is ideal for shorter range requirements with competitive cost targets.

Last but not least, Qioptic showcases its OCELOT Continuous Zoom Visible Camera, Qioptiq’s visible camera offering, enhances the entire thermal suite by providing a wider spectral capability. This creates an ideal solution for security and remote monitoring applications.
