The nature of Defence and Aerospace applications require rugged, heavy-duty cameras.
High resolution CMOS cameras are available with resolutions up to 64 mega-pixel, and are available with a variety of interfaces, including CameraLink, Gige, HD-SDI and CoaXPress.
Cameras with built-in imaging processing, built-in programmable corrections, auto-exposure, auto-gain, auto-Iris control, and programmable exposure with precision up to one micro second make great choices for defence and aerospace applications.
Machine vision cameras for defence and aerospace applications feature a thermally optimised design, 10-12 bit internal data processing, 8, 10, or 12-bit selectable output, low noise and greater than 60dB dynamic range. All cameras used within a military environment should offer extended temperature range of -40°C to +85°C, shock/vibration performance of >1000G/100G, MIL SPEC 810F product and has a certification of MTBF of > 660,000 hours @ 40°C (Telcordia SR-332). Low profile, low power, and light weight cameras are extremely good when space is tight and you need eyes in the sky.
A high-speed camera for defense and aerospace needs is vital to ensuring that a facility is obtaining the exact data needed. Filtering to the vast number of options can be daunting, especially when you are attempting to establish which type of camera would work best for the experiments you will be performing.
The easiest way to decide which camera you will need is to answer four key questions about your defense and aerospace needs.
• Speed – How fast is it going?
• Size & Resolution – How large is the event and what resolution is required?
• Illumination – How much light is required to clearly see the experiment?
• Proximity – How close does the camera need to be to the event?
Regardless of what you are recording, the above will always be important. Please do not hesitate to contact us so that a trained Phantom camera expert can assist you in deciding which camera you will need.
