LEXINGTON, Mass. – The BAE Systems Sensor Solutions segment in Lexington, Mass., is introducing the Athena 1920 high-definition thermal camera core for long-range and demanding applications in security, surveillance, and targeting systems.
The Athena 1920 combines infrared image clarity with a wide field of view, and is compact, lightweight, and low-power.
Additional applications for this thermal camera core include aerial reconnaissance, perimeter security, and asset monitoring. “We put more pixels on the target, giving end users the situational awareness they need to make critical decisions,” says Robyn Decker, director of Lexington Business Center and Sensor Solutions at BAE Systems.
The Athena 1920 features a 1920-by-1200-pixel vanadium oxide (VOx) uncooled microbolometer pixel array using 12-micron pixel technology. The camera’s 60 Hz frame rate delivers clarity and minimizes motion blur in dynamic scenes.
The high-definition sensor offers nearly eight times the field of view of traditional camera cores, and with its 51-by-40-by-21-millimeter
