HOT MWIR Camera Technology

MWIR systems provide higher resolution and sensitivity compared to long wave infrared (LWIR) systems due to shorter waveband and cooled detector architecture. Constraints associated with cooled architecture historically limited MWIR technology to military systems or high-end commercial applications. 

Recent advancements in high operating temperature (HOT) MWIR sensor technology improves size, weight, power consumption, and Cost (SWaP+C), increasing demand of MWIR camera systems for industrial, commercial, and defense applications. This growth is translating to increased demand for custom and production optical systems.

Teledyne FLIR has experienced a significant increase in demand for HOT MWIR products, specifically, the MWIR Neutrino® LC and Neutrino SX8 camera modules, particularly with integrated continuous zoom (CZ) optics. In response, Teledyne FLIR launched multiple models of the Neutrino IS series of SWaP+C MWIR camera modules with factory-integrated CZ optics in 2021. These integrated systems shown, leverage the design-for-manufacturing (DFM) process developed and followed within the Optical Systems Group.
