Best-in-Class ISR Solution with Low Switching-Cost
Teledyne FLIR unveiled its Neutrino SX12 ISR1200 on 17 March, a high-definition mid-wavelength IR )MWIR) camera with continuous zoom (CZ) for ground-based ISR applications.
The initial model in the new Neutrino Ground ISR series, the system combines an MWIR camera module and 120-1,200mm CZ optics and industry-adopted imaging electronics from InVeo Designs, to provide a best-in-class ISR solution with low-switching-cost for defence and industrial integrators.
Based on Teledyne FLIR focal plane array (FPA) technology, near diffraction-limited optics, and a long-life linear Stirling cooler with 25,000h MTTF, the Neutrino SX12 ISR1200 offers 1280×1024 resolution with 12µm pixel size and dual-parallel outputs using a 60Hz Camera Link base with 1080P30 or 720P60 HD-SDI, ideal for tracking, turbulence mitigation, and artificial intelligence. The SX12 ISR1200 is a turnkey system, ideal for integration with ground-based, long-range ISR, perimeter surveillance, border surveillance, and counter-UAS.
“The Neutrino Ground ISR series joins the Neutrino IS series of MWIR camera modules with integrated CZ optics, offering defense and industrial integrators shortened time-to-market and reduced project risk, thanks to its familiar imaging components and off-the-shelf design and delivery,” said Dan Walker, VP, Product Management. “All Neutrino series systems are classified under US Department of Commerce jurisdiction as EAR 6A003.b.4.a and are not subject to International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR)”.
The long focal length CZ lens was developed and is produced by the Teledyne FLIR team, formerly of New England Optical Systems (NEOS), which joined FLIR in 2019. The system provides autofocus, focus, and boresight retention through zoom, and is factory optimised for each integrated system.
