Description Typical Performance Applications Configurations Downloads

SNIR is a revolutionary multifunction IR detector which has a unique readout circuit. It is capable of producing an excellent MWIR image while detecting laser pulses in parallel and in each pixel. SNIR is a VGA format detector with 15 micron pitch. Hence it is the perfect solution for 'see spot' applications such as handheld cameras used by the infantry soldier.

In addition, the detector can be used in a range finding mode. In this mode, each pixel can serve as a laser range finder by synchronizing the detector to a laser source.  This results in advanced and enhanced targeting abilities for an IR camera. Another feature that is implemented in this detector is a low noise operation mode which enables SWIR imaging in low light conditions.
