High speed HD infrared camera for test range applications

FLIR Systems has released the latest addition to its RS-Series of long-range infrared camera systems designed for range tracking, target signature, research, and scientific applications.

The FLIR RS8300 is claimed to couple a high-speed HD MWIR detector with a 10x continuous zoom lens in a sealed, ruggedised enclosure. Combining reliability with leading edge performance, the FLIR RS8300 delivers infrared imagery at up to 200 megapixels per second.To capture the most fleeting of events the camera is said to be capable of full-frame resolution 14-bit data at 125fps to 64 × 64 at 2kHz.

Four active preset operating modes optimise the FLIR RS8300’s imaging to provide adjustable integration times, embedded non-uniformity correction, bad pixel replacement and window size adjustments.

Sealed in a positive pressure enclosure, the10x continuous optical zoom lens embeds the focus and focal length information, along with IRIG-B time stamp in every frame of data, allowing for TSPI work.

The RS8300 comes with FLIR's ResearchIR Max software enabling you to view, acquire, analyse, and share high speed data from the camera. Alternately, using FLIR’s SDK ActiveX component, engineers can command and control the camera with their own custom software.
