Miricle 307K Mini Infrared Camera
Apr 2006
Thermoteknix Systems Ltd.Request Info
CAMBRIDGE, England, April 13, 2006 -- Thermoteknix Systems Ltd. announced that its latest innovation in thermal imaging will be launched in the US at the SPIE Defense & Security Symposium in Orlando, Fla., on April 19. The Miricle 307K incorporates the highest resolution uncooled alpha-silicon microbolometer detector in the world's smallest camera package, according to the company.Measuring just 1.5 in. cubed, its VGA resolution, ultracompact size and rugged, environmentally protected housing are perfect for forward-looking infrared (FLIR), ground and portable surveillance and security systems, as well as other commercial and military applications, the company said.

The Miricle 307K joins the Thermoteknix Miricle 110K line of uncooled miniature thermal imaging cameras where its 640 x 480, 307, 200 pixel detector with 25-micron pitch extend the scope, range and applications of today’s fast-growing security and surveillance markets, the company said. Offering greater detection at farther distances and with smaller and lower cost optics, the Miricle 307K produces outstanding imagery in total darkness, unaffected by smoke or fog.

Its fourfold increase in pixel power over the industry standard 320 x 240 detector based cameras produces spectacular quality imaging in a miniature camera, Thermoteknix said.In common with the Miricle infrared camera range, the Miricle 307K will be available in a choice of housings including hermetically sealed, gas purged and ruggedized for unattended field or aerial use. Flexible lens arrangements include bayonet interchangeable and threaded mounts with lens options from wide angle to telephoto and dual field of view available.

The Miricle 307K will be available in fully assembled camera units for end-users as well as a range of custom engine and core configurations, including Thermoteknix' silent, low profile shutter for OEM, system designers and integrators. Thermoteknix Miricle electronics provide automatic non-uniformity correction, a range of autogain algorithms to suit different types of terrain as well as real-time spatial filtering and image processing for rapid feature identification within the camera itself. A choice of digital and analog outputs complete the package to meet application needs.

A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
thermal imaging
The process of producing a visible two-dimensional image of a scene that is dependent on differences in thermal or infrared radiation from the scene reaching the aperture of the imaging device.
