High Performance Cooled Infrared Camera
The IRE-640L Sofradir EC infrared camera family harnesses the full performance of the Sofradir Scorpio focal plane array while offering unique flexibility to meet the needs of any application or OEM requirement. The cameras are available in mid-format (320x256), large-format (640x512), and megapixel (1280x1024). The mid-format Mars-based cameras have broad spectral response capabilities ranging from SWIR (800nm-2.5μm), broadband MWIR (1.5-5μm), MWIR (3-5μm), LWIR (8- 10μm), and VLWIR (8-12μm). The Scorpio MW and LW and Jupiter MW based cameras operate in the MWIR (3-5μm) and LWIR (8-10μm) regions. The engines have a common connectivity and interface logic. The Mars, Scorpio and Jupiter camera engines include an integrated detector/dewar/cooler assembly (IDDCA) and electronics.

The camera electronics include camera and cooler controls modules. The camera produces output signals that are uncorrected or corrected for nonuniformities in an RS-170 video and 14-bit digital data format. Camera communication is available over a serial (RS-232) interface. A 14-bit digital data stream is available via LVDS and Camera Link as well as optionally Gigabit Ethernet. With the optics options, the cameras can be customized to meet any requirement. D*STAR, a digital storage, retrieval and image processing Software Suite is available for infrared imaging research and development applications. In addition, software developer toolkits (SDKs) and command software modules are available for further flexibility.
