The Zafiro® HD Cooled Camera Module is DRS Infrared’s latest entry into the cooled MWIR camera market providing High-Definition (720p HD) infrared imaging capability in a low size, weight, and power camera package without compromising imaging performance. The Integrated Dewar Cooler Assembly (IDCA) utilizes Leonardo DRS’ HDVIP™ (High Density Vertically Integrated Photodiode) HgCdTe detector technology to deliver high sensitivity and superior performance to address the most demanding applications. The Zafiro® HD Cooled Camera Module is ideal for longer-range surveillance, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), demanding situational-awareness applications, and use in day or night conditions.
