With a user supplied programmable transmitter and receivers with AUX channels
The Liteye AQUILA™ MICRO
Provides a high performance UAV thermal camera payload. Allowing for image features that are controllable from the ground; Digital Zoom,Image Enhancement and Polarity.
The Micro Uses ICE™ Image Contrast Enhancement
Liteye uses the Tamarisk®320 Thermal engine
The first 320 x 240 Vanadium Oxide (VOx) microbolometer of its kind, it combines industry-leading 17 μm pixel-pitch, Long-Wave Infrared (LWIR) technology with patented advanced absorber superstructure to provide greater sensitivity, improved detection, and unparalleled thermal imagery.
Thermal technology provides clear, high-resolution images through smoke, haze, dust, light fog or the darkest night.
The warmer an object, the more energy it emits. Infrared energy emitted by a viewed scene is focused through the specialized objective lens assembly of an infrared camera on to the camera's focal plane array (FPA). The FPA uses materials that respond by generating electrical impulses when infrared energy strikes it. These electrical impulses are then sent in the form of temperature values to an image signal processor that turns them into video data for presentation on a display.
