As shown at Eurosatory 2024, the inclusion of Prism AI software into the Hadron 640 has allowed for a wider number of roles with a faster provision of data and information for decision-making in police and crowd security roles.

Teledyne FLIR has unveiled the integration of Prism AI software into the Hadron 640 dual thermal-visible camera for UAS, which uses the Boson+ sensor, to provide a range of capability including crowd monitoring in police, security and security roles.

The Hadron 640 provided as Hadron 640+ thermal visible camera and Hadron 640R+ combined radiometric thermal and visible dual camera module, and includes a 640x512 resolution Boson+ longwave infrared (LWIR) camera module with a thermal sensitivity of 20 millikelvin (mK) or better.

The Hadron 640R+ provides temperature measurements for every pixel in the scene. The addition of a 64MP visible camera enables the Hadron 640 series to provide both thermal and visible imagery within a single camera module.

The camera’s size and weight, 21x21x11mm camera body and as low as 7.5g, combined with low-power consumption, starting at 500 mW is designed to make it most useful for low Size, Weight, and Power (SWAP) requirements.

A company official said key applications were with UGVs, UAS, sights and handheld operations.

“The Prism AI perception software which supports image analysis allows for anonymous crowd analysis and activity monitoring and target tracking from imagery provided through Boson+ and Hadron,” the official said.
