Tiny SWIR Camera Is ITAR Free

UTC Aerospace Systems unveils its Sensors Unlimited Micro-SWIR 640CSX Camera, the latest in its line of exportable high-performance short-wave infrared (SWIR) cameras.  The camera is said to be very affordable and without ITAR export restrictions. The camera’s compact size and low power draw are ideally suited for integration into commercial systems and industrial process monitoring applications. The low-light to daytime imager offers a digital output of 30 or 60 frames per second full frame rate and is available with optional Near Infrared (NIR) / SWIR wavelength response to extend sensitivity.


On the front end, the 640CSX offers an industry standard C-mount lens interface. On the backend, the Indium Gallium Arsenide (InGaAs) camera offers a Camera Link digital output providing for plug-and-play video with 12-bit images for digital image processing or transmission.
