BAE Systems plc has released what it describes as an uncooled vanadium oxide infrared image sensor with VGA resolution and pixels measuring 12 x 12um. The 40g image sensor has 640 x 480 pixels in a unit measuring 33.3 x 26.2 x 26.4mm. This allows system integrators to reduce optics sizes by 50 per cent, the company stated.

Output is switchable between 30fps and 60fps and power consumption is 1W. The spectral range covers wavelengths from 7.5-13.5mm and a larger amount of local video processing is supplied. This includes black hot, white hot options, edge detection and the local lossless storage of up to 100 images.

Video formats include 14bit parallel digital 1.8V, analogue, USB or CameraLink and the output format is RS232 or USB.

The image sensor is intended for thermal imaging applications in commercial, civil and military markets.
