    The Mini Blackbird SXGA is a state of the art HD MWIR core optimized for low SWaP-C applications. This breakthrough very Low SWaP-C core enables MWIR HD to meet the demanding requirements of tactical applications such as: small and tactical payloads, hand held and portable devices, tactical situation awareness systems and variety of armor sights requirements. The Mini-Blackbird integrates SCD’s advanced pixel technology of XBn 10μm pixel size. The 1280 x 1024 FPA is based on SCD’s proven XBn technology which enables HOT (High Operating Temperature) FPA operation at 150K without compromising on the detectors overall performance. The HOT HD FPA is integrated into a very compact Dewar and operated using an advanced micro-cooler optimized for HOT detectors. In addition, the detectors proximity electronics include full video core with image processing capabilities on board providing a very compact solution, very low weight (<350 gr) and very low power consumption (total power is about 5W at room temperature).
