High Performance, Uncooled, Longwave Infrared (LWIR) OEM Thermal Camera Module

Boson®+

Model: Boson Plus 320, 12° (HFOV) 18 mm Go to Product Support
product image

Made in the USA and ITAR free, the Boson+ sets the standard for longwave infrared (LWIR) OEM thermal camera performance and size, weight, and power (SWaP). It features an industry-leading thermal sensitivity of less than or equal to (≤)20 mK. The upgraded automatic gain control (AGC) filter and new DDE+ deliver dramatically enhanced scene contrast and sharpness. Lower video latency enhances tracking, seeker performance, and decision support.

Boson+ is a plug-and-play upgrade widely-deployed Boson and include optional factory-integrated continuous zoom lenses to streamline development and maximize performance. With customer-selectable USB, CMOS, or MIPI video interfaces, it is easier than ever to integrate Boson+ into a wide range of embedded processors from Qualcomm, Ambarella, and more. The user-friendly SDK, updated GUI, and comprehensive product documentation further simplify OEM integration for unmanned ground vehicles (UGV), unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), wearables, security applications, handhelds, and thermal sights.
