The Phoenix HD5 SWIR camera by Attollo Engineering is the industry’ smallest short-wave infrared (SWIR) camera with SXGA resolution and small pixel pitch of only 5 microns. With a volume slightly bigger than 1 cubic inch and a net weight without lens of only 32 grams, the Phoenix HD5 SWIR camera is ideal for small gimbal and sUAS integration as well as use in low-SWaP handheld and soldier-mounted systems.
The 5 micron pixel pitch of the Phoenix HD5 SWIR camera is today’ state-of-the-art for the InGaAs industry and enables more pixels on target with a shorter focal length optic. The InGaAs FPA is designed specifically to support broadband imaging with 80% at 1550 nm along with day and night laser see-spot and range-gated imaging capabilities. Using a laser even detector module (sold separately), laser designator imaging (overlaying of the laser spot onto the context frame) is possible as well as decoding.
In terms of video interface, the camera offers a native Parallel CMOS video output but CameraLink, USB3 and MIPI CSI-2 are also available thanks to the addition of an extra interface board as part of the stack.
The camera comes by default with a C-mount lens interface and CamVideo software for Windows. Python script is also available upon request.
The range of applications for the Phoenix HD5 SWIR camera includes but is not limited to:
