Advancements in uncooled technology continue to expand the range of application for infrared imaging systems. These developments, combined with steady improvements in the performance of long wave sensors, provide researchers with a variety of new tools to solve demanding application challenges.

IRCameras partners with two innovative optical system manufacturers to provide an extensive line-up of long wave infrared cameras. They range from low-cost, low SWaP OEM payloads from DRS, to high-performance scientific research and temperature-calibrated thermography systems from Jenoptik.

Mid Range 360° Panoramic Thermal Imager

IRC introduces a new approach to short range and mid-range panoramic imaging. Through innovative developments at St. John’s Optical Systems, IRC now offers a unique 30 Hz frame rate panoramic imaging system. Utilizing a single high definition infrared camera and no moving parts, the user can continuously monitor large areas without fear of losing track of a potential targets due to camera motion. With detection of humans out to 350 meters and vehicles out to 1100 meters, this camera provides total perimeter security at an affordable price.

A simple GigE interface and WiFi connectivity allows security professionals with smart phones to view real-time imagery, providing enhanced situational awareness.

With on board temperature calibration, users can simultaneously detect overheating components while at the same time providing persistent surveillance of high valued assets, truly a breakthrough in perimeter protection.
