Sierra-Olympic Introduces MWIR Camera Core for Imaging Gimbals

Sierra-Olympic Technologies introduces the Ventus 275, a midwave-infrared, 640µm x 512µm x 15µm imaging engine with an f/5.5, 19mm-275mm continuous zoom (CZ) optic.

The compact, lightweight (approx. 1,153g) MWIR thermal camera core is specially designed for OEM integrators of surveillance system enclosures and other imaging gimbals. Sierra-Olympic will showcase the new cost-effective camera core in Hall 1, Stand 1B80 at VISION Stuttgart on 6-8 November.

Ventus 275 features an indium antimonide (InSb) focal plane array and a finely-tuned athermalised and parfocal zoom lens with a 28.4 – 2° horizontal field of view (HFOV).

The powerful image processing engine provides advanced image enhancements, including electronic image stabilisation, automatic / manual gain control, adaptive contrast control (CLAHE / LAP) and optional target tracking / detection. The camera also features a shutter-based non-uniformity correction (NUC) and an environmentally sealed front lens element.

Multiple output interfaces include analogue NTSC / PAL video, H.264 / MJPEG IP video, and 14-bit Camera Link digital video, making the MWIR Ventus 275 ideal for applications in security and surveillance, fixed monitoring, defence, manned / unmanned ground and airborne platforms.

Sierra-Olympic’s expert staff is readily available to support OEM integration and assist with easy exportation (EAR ECCN 6A003.b.4.a) and documentation tasks.

Midwave-infrared (MWIR) cameras are utilised by the oil and gas industry to detect and visualise emissions of hydrocarbon gases such as methane, propane and butane.
