Thermal imagine technologies keep getting better and smaller. At this year’s IDEX 2015, Selex ES introduced a new medium wave thermal imager sold as the Horizon Medium Wave Infra-Red (MWIR).
The Horizon is sold in either Standard Definition or High Definition thermal arrays. The camera uses an integrated detector/cooler assembly that contributes to its ease of maintenance. The cooling engine has a estimated life span of 50,000 hours. Other features include Ethernet support, digital and analog video outputs and the camera can be operated with a wide field of view for greater situational awareness or a very narrow 0.6° FOV in long-range mode.
