Flir Systems has announced upgrades to its Tau and Quark OEM camera core products. The latest versions, called Tau 2 and Quark 2, provide new features for existing and future solutions, including new radiometric capabilities.

Tau 2 is a thermal camera core for such devices as Unmanned Airborne Vehicles (UAVs), thermal weapon sights, and handheld imagers. This latest version offers increased sensitivity (<30mK), options for 640/60Hz frame rates, and a new suite of powerful, manually set image processing modes that improve detail and contrast.

The smaller Quark 2 offers very competitive size, weight and power (SWaP). It utilises the same sensor as Tau 2, only with Silent Shutterless Non-uniformity Correction (SSN). It also supports options for 640/60Hz frame rates, and the same suite of image processing modes as Tau 2.

Tau 2 and Quark 2 now also offer built-in temperature measurement for radiometry, analytics and telemetry. Users can set isotherm thresholds in the greyscale to flag temperatures of interest.
