Waterloo, Ontario – May 1, 2018 – Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company and global leader in image sensing technology, will highlight its highly versatile and configurable LWIR camera platform at AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2018, taking place May 1-3 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado. Teledyne DALSA will be exhibiting in booth #3802. 

Teledyne DALSA’s CalibirTM series of uncooled LWIR cameras feature shutterless calibration, but they also offer an optional mechanical shutter for exceptional situations such as calibrating with a hot object constantly in view. A compact design and low weight mean the Calibir LWIR cameras can be integrated into tight spaces for confined and low profile solutions. In addition, these new models feature PTP (IEEE 1588) which allows exact synchronization of multiple cameras, in both the visible and IR spectrums. PTP makes it significantly easier to design networked camera solutions without the need for a complex and specific trigger and synchronization hardware. 

Teledyne DALSA will also feature an LWIR-VIS fusion camera concept, which allows for real-time image fusion. This capability is very suitable for UAV applications like solar inspection, search and rescue and surveillance.

The Calibir series supports a variety of interfaces, lenses, image processing features, and hardware options to serve a wide range of uncooled LWIR imaging applications, including defense and security, UAV, surveillance, thermography and industrial vision. The series architecture lends itself easily to customization of cameras and cores, with options including radiometric operations, smart embedded algorithms, and real-time fusion imaging.
