Captures Bright & Dark Portions of a Scene

Using a cooled 1280 × 1024 InGaAs sensor from SCD, the Owl 1280 offers a visible response from 0.6µm to 1.7µm, enabling high-sensitivity imaging.

The 10µmx10µm pixel pitch enables the highest-resolution imaging. The Owl 1280 has a readout noise (RMS) specification of <28 electrons and offers a high intra-scene dynamic range of 51dB, enabling simultaneous capture of bright & dark portions of a scene.

Key Features
  • 1280 × 1024, 10µmx10µm pixel pitch VIS-SWIR technology
  • <50 electrons readout noise (RMS)
  • On-board Automated Gain Control (AGC)
  • On-board Intelligent 3-point NUC
