BOSON+ Uncooled LWIR Thermal Camera Core

Made in the USA, the Boson longwave infrared (LWIR) OEM thermal camera module sets the standard for size, weight, power, and performance (SWaP). Utilizing Teledyne FLIR’s advanced image processing and several industry-standard communication interfaces, Boson enables applications from firefighting to unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), security, and automotive development kits, all for as little as 600 mW. The 12 µm uncooled detector comes in two resolutions – 640 × 512 or 320 × 256 – and multiple frame rate options. Radiometric models offer absolute temperature measurement. With multiple lens configurations, the easy-to-use Boson SDK, user-friendly GUI, and comprehensive product integration documentation further simplify OEM integration into higher-level systems.
