Opgal Optronic Industries Announces Shutterless Thermal Video Engine

Opgal Optronic Industries has announced the availability of the EyeR-Core(TM) thermal video engine (camera core) platform. With this enhancement, Opgal becomes the only camera manufacturer to offer both ASi and VOx microbolometer cores with universal form, fit and function (FFF). The military-standard EyeR-Core(TM) offers outstanding image performance and threat detection, together with the cost and reliability advantages of microbolometer technology. The engine features 500g at 0.5msec shock absorbing capabilities -- ideal for thermal weapon sights, low-power consumption for handheld applications, and a 640x480 17 focal plane array. The device's innovative field-proven shutterless operation enables the engine to work continuously for non-uniformity corrections (NUC) in real time. EyeR-Core(TM) has no moving mechanical components, which further increases the engine's reliability and allows for a smaller footprint. Based on many years of technology development and working closely with customers, the upgraded EyeR-Core(TM) is designed to meet manufacturer and integrator needs. With an interchangeable FFF and an optimized SWaP ratio, the EyeR-Core(TM) is an extremely flexible platform -- suitable and customizable for a broad spectrum of defense, security and industrial applications. Opgal's video engine platforms are field-proven in handheld, mounted and airborne observation, thermal weapon sights, remote controlled weapon stations, and driver viewer enhancers for armored vehicles. The EyeR-Core(TM) is also relied upon for securing ports, airport perimeters, power plants, borders, oil and gas facilities, and other critical infrastructure.
