    Cardinal 640 Low Noise (LOON)

    The Cardinal 640 stands as a well-established SWIR VGA 15μm detector, renowned for its exceptional performance. It offers high sensitivity and a high frame rate, while maintaining low power consumption and minimal floor noise, distinguishing it as one of the premier SWIR detectors available. Included with the detector is a Thermo Electric Cooler (TEC), which can be deployed to cool the Focal Plane Array (FPA) in low-light scenarios.
    Equipped with Asynchronous Laser Pulse Detection (ALPD) and two-dimensional Laser Range Finder (TLRF) capabilities, the Cardinal 640 presents the optimal solution for advanced SWIR systems. With the Cardinal 640, SCD’s customers are invariably equipped to be the first to detect and act.
