At AUVSI Xponential in Orlando, Florida, Teledyne FLIR has unveiled the HADRON 640R, a camera that combines a 640×512 pixel resolution radiometric boson thermal imager and a 64 MP optical camera in a Size, Weight and Power Consumption optimised design.
As Teledyne writes, the design of this camera system has been optimised for integration with:
- unmanned aerial systems
- unmanned ground vehicles
- robotic platforms
- emerging AI applications
In these applications, extremely compact design, high battery life and long operating time are crucial. Reportedly, the Long-Wave Infrared thermal imaging camera, with a resolution of 640 x 512 pixels, provides a temperature reading for each pixel in the sensor field and can see through:
- total darkness
Combined with the 64MP high-resolution optical visible camera, the HDRON 640R is capable of providing both thermal and visible imagery compatible with today’s on-device and edge computing processors for AI and machine learning applications, the company emphasises.
Mission Next-Level Weapon Stabilisation – Tailor-Made Meets ModularIn the development and production of military vehicles, time is not only money, but also relative. Years pass from the idea to the first deployment. In turn, vehicles are in service for decades before they need repairs and upgrades.
