BAE Systems unveils Athena 1920

28th October 2020 - 17:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

​High-definition sensor is designed to meet high-performance applications where size, weight, power, and cost are important factors

BAE Systems on 28 October announced the launch of a new 1920x1200 pixel low-power core array.

The compact (51x40x21mm) and lightweight (70g) Athena 1920 uncooled thermal sensor enables motion imagery with variety of potential applications, including ISR and targeting systems. 

Robyn Decker, director of Lexington Business Center and Sensor Solutions at BAE Systems, said: ‘We put more pixels on the target, giving end users the situational awareness they need to make critical decisions.’

Athena 1920 features a vanadium oxide uncooled microbolometer array based on 12µm pixel technology from BAE Systems.

A high-definition camera has a 60Hz frame rate and minimises motion blur in dynamic scenes, which BAE Systems claims provides ‘unparalleled detail of complex environments’.
