New long range thermal imager
The new Arbel thermal imager offers a dual field of view, which provides its operators with best situational awareness in a variety of defence and security applications. By utilising the next generation Eye-R25 17 micron sensor with an advanced, DSP-based platform it can detect man sized targets at 2,480m and NATO objects at 6,200m.
The Arbel is fully ruggedized to deal with the harshest weather and environmental conditions, including rain, direct sunlight, high humidity and dust. The module is encased a in a metal enclosure and designed to be vibration and shock resistant. The high-sensitivity, <40mK, long wave thermal imaging sensor detects targets in total darkness and also through dust and smoke. It has new 12/4 degrees dual field of view compact optics to obtain fast situational awareness.
The Arbel can be used as a stand-alone camera and/or as an OEM sensor to be integrated in the customer's surveillance or weapon sight systems, suitable for rugged field conditions. The unit works in temperatures from -30 to 60C and can be powered from 9V to 28V. It has military clearances MIL-STD-461D & Mil-STD 810E the casing is IP65 or can be IP67 if requested. The camera can be fixed, mounted or integrated into a pan and tilt device.
This imager provides the user with the latest in target detection through difficult viewing conditions and should help in assessing critical situations where good information is essential to making the correct decision.
