High Operating Temperature L-HOT medium wave infrared integrated detector cooler
29 June 2012
Sofradir has announced its High Operating Temperature L-HOT medium wave infrared integrated detector cooler assembly prototype that the company claims offers a significantly improved detection range over earlier models.
The L-HOT MWIR demonstrator meets system integrators requirements to reduce size, weight and power in military equipment. The signal over noise ratio of the IR detector is an important attribute for evaluating image quality and detection range. An IR chip with high standard signal over noise performance is more apt at detecting slight differences in temperature between objects.
