Nova Sensors delivers superb infrared camera packages by integrating the finest components on the market with our own unparalleled compact camera electronics (CCE). Nova specializes in the design and development of low-power, low-noise, highly-integrated miniature electronics that operate short-wave, mid-wave, long-wave, dual-band, and hyperspectral infrared focalplane arrays. We supply custom firmware and calibration for your precise application. And our designers customize both component architecture and electronics, delivering elegant solutions to challenging specifications. Cunningly configured with micro-miniature connectors and rigid-flex circuitry, Nova’s CCE provides clocks, biases, and control signals, while receiving raw camera data, to which it applies non-uniformity-correction (NUC), bad-pixel replacement, gain control, and your choices from a menu of other algorithms.
Optimized for savings in Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP), Nova cameras, such as the all newCruz line of MWIR 640s and 1280s, serve a wide range of commercial and military applications, including industrial security, gas finding, airborne observation, hostile fire identification (HFI), missile launch detection/classification, and dismount identification tracking. With an enviable record of achievement and the backing of majority-owner Teledyne, Nova Sensors is perfectly placed to supply all your infrared imaging solutions.
Nova is now taking camera integration, calibration and testing into the pour-fill dewar market. By integrating our electronics with pour-fill dewars and the best focal-plane and optic for any given task, we can deliver cameras for spectroscopy, microscopy, and other scientific applications, both in quantity production and for custom applications. We do repair and return for existing systems just as happily and proficiently as we build new ones.
