Intelligent Sensor MWIR camera
The Boeing Company has introduced its Intelligent Sensor, a camera system that provides defence and security customers with fully integrated video-processing capability. It is designed for high-performance, real-time imaging systems for which low size, weight and power are critical, such as security systems, perimeter defence, and surveillance on small unmanned aerial vehicles.
The Intelligent Sensor is a medium-wavelength infrared (MWIR) camera system that allows users to perform real-time data analysis within the camera itself, eliminating the need for bulky external processing equipment. This reduces both download time and bandwidth requirements.
The device can be used as a standalone imaging system or as a component linked with other detectors and sensors. The system will enable customers to streamline their advanced imagery and video processing needs in order to perform a broad variety of data analysis, surveillance and tracking missions.
Boeing has demonstrated the Intelligent Sensor's advanced capabilities in the field, in conjunction with a number of the company's proven directed-energy technologies that offer real force protection on a variety of platforms for land, air and sea.
