Thermal Camera Core Meets Challenging Imaging Demands

Missions requiring 360-degree situational awareness, vehicle protection, and space-based surveillance are now supported by BAE Systems’ Athena 1920 thermal camera core. The uncooled 12-µm LWIR sensor captures infrared imagery in high definition with minimal blur and sharp detail at night and in adverse weather conditions.

The updated Athena 1920 is compact and light, and it has corrosion-, heat-, and humidity-resistant protective coatings. The sensor offers redundant software-based single-event upset (SEU) mitigation for use in high-altitude and space environments to help lessen the effects of dangerous radiation. Also available are two frame rate options (30 Hz and 60 Hz) and frame synchronization for greater image depth.

Chaining together image captures from various Athena 1920 camera cores operating simultaneously allows for a more comprehensive understanding of the situation, including real-time 360° sensing for a ground vehicle. Broad-view night vision images can also be captured using sensor hardening from a variety of platforms, such as satellites, manned aircraft, and aircraft.
