Aetos™ 5-R Series eSWIR
Extended Shortwave Infrared (eSWIR), 5 µm Pixel Pitch Camera Core
The Aetos™ eSWIR 5-R series camera cores include the Aetos™ eSWIR VGA5-R (640×512) and Aetos™eSWIR HD5-R (1280×1024), featuring the industry’s smallest eSWIR sensors made to enable the smallest of cryocooled infrared imaging systems. The Aetos™ eSWIR 5-R Series captures snapshot SWIR imagery using Attollo Engineering’s HOT Type-II Superlattice (T2SL) detector material, detecting in the wavelength band of 0.9 to 2.4 µm.
The extremely small pixel pitch of 5 µm enables more pixels on target with a short focal length optic, reducing overall sensor size. The camera core uses a rotary cooler for fast cooldown and high power efficiency. The eSWIR sensors are also capable of supporting broadband imaging along with day and night laser see-spot capabilities.
The camera cores are built for low SWaP applications and offer a significant opportunity for cost savings at the system level compared to competing eSWIR cameras. With a volume of 134 cm3 and weight of 221 grams, these rotary cooled cameras are ideal for small gimbal integration as well as use in SWaP-constrained handheld and soldier-carried systems.
The form factor and electronics of the Aetos™ eSWIR camera core is exactly the same as Attollo Engineering’s Griffin™ VGA5-R and Griffin™ HD5-R products. View the datasheet for the list of all the specifications.
