FLIR Systems' New Thermal Camera Core for OEM Customers

Leading technology company FLIR Systems, Inc. FLIR recently launched a new thermal camera – Boson – for its original equipment manufacture (‘OEM) customers. The camera is the smallest and lightest one manufactured by the company so far. It also consumes the minimum amount of power. The product launch emphasizes the company’s innovation-based growth trajectory.

The size of Boson’s core is between that of FLIR Systems’ Lepton and Tau camera cores. The uncooled camera comprises a revolutionary low-power, multi-core vision processor. The processor operates on FLIR XIR’s extendable infrared video processing platform.

The camera’s 12-micron pixel pitch detector offers high-resolution thermal imager in a lightweight, low power, small turnkey package. It also includes different levels of video processing with processors and inputs of other sensors like Global Positioning Systems (GPSs), Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) and CMOS imaging sensors.

Moving Ahead

FLIR Systems designs, produces and markets non-imitable sensor systems. These systems are used in a wide variety of security applications, thermal imaging as well as situational awareness domains like airborne and ground-based surveillance, drug interdiction and environmental monitoring.

The contemporary OEM market demands for cheaper and smaller camera cores. FLIR Systems produces innovative gadgets that offer cost effective and high performing sensing. Thus, introduction of Boson would help in lowering the cost-to-market of the OEM customers.
