Zafiro® 640 Micro Cooled Camera Module

One of the Smallest, Lowest-Power Mid-Wave Infrared (MWIR) Camera Module on the Market Today

Leonardo DRS’ Zafiro®640 Micro is a low power, ultracompact MWIR 640 x 480 camera core for the most demanding imaging applications. Weighing less than 0.9 pounds and requiring only 5 W of power at room temperature, this sensor, complete with corrected video, enables both battery-powered and very space-restrictive applications.

At the heart of the camera core is Leonardo DRS’ Integrated Dewar Cooler Assembly (IDCA). Utilizing a 12 µm pitch HgCdTe Focal Plane Array (FPA) that enables smaller and lighter optics, along with Leonardo DRS’ industry leading long-life cooler technology, the IDCA enables all the performance of a long-range capable cooled MWIR sensor in a small, quiet, low power package. With camera-ready electronics included, the Zafiro®640 Micro compact thermal imager enables new solutions for the dismounted soldier, small gimbal payloads and other low size, weight and power (SWaP) applications.
