Paris 2011: FLIR Systems Shows Thermal-Camera Core
FLIR Systems (Chalet C2) is introducing here in Paris its new thermal-camera core, called Quark, which it says provides high-quality infrared imaging and reliability. Salient characteristics of Quark include its small volume (less than 0.5 cu in), its low mass (less than 20 grams) and a shock rating of 800 gs. Wafer-level packaging of the microbolometer sensor facilitates Quark’s compact design, according to FLIR, while Quark’s capabilities make it adaptable for a variety of applications.
Founded in 1978 and headquartered in Portland, Oregon, FLIR designs, manufactures and supports thermal imaging systems and subsystems for industrial, scientific, government, commercial and firefighting applications.
