Teledyne FLIR Unveils Next-Gen of Hadron 640 Dual Thermal-Visible Cameras for Unmanned Systems

Teledyne FLIR, part of Teledyne Technologies Incorporated, has introduced its next generation Hadron 640 dual radiometric thermal and visible camera modules for unmanned systems.

The ITAR-free Hadron 640+ and radiometric Hadron 640R+ provide thermal sensitivity. All models are size, weight, and power (SWaP) optimized for integration into unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), unmanned ground vehicles (UGV), robotic platforms, and emerging AI applications utilizing Teledyne FLIR Prism software.

“The Hadron 640 series gives integrators the opportunity to deploy AI-ready, high-performance dual-camera modules into small unmanned systems where SWaP, performance, run time, and battery life are mission critical,” said Michael Walters, Vice President Product Management, Teledyne FLIR.

The new Hadron 640 modules include a 640 x 512 resolution Boson+ longwave infrared (LWIR) camera module with thermal sensitivity of 20 millikelvin (mK) or better. It sees through total darkness, smoke, most fog, and glare allowing operational awareness day and night. The Hadron 640R+ provides temperature measurements for every pixel in the scene. The addition of a 64MP visible camera enables the Hadron 640 series to provide both thermal and visible imagery within a single camera module.

The Hadron 640 series features enhanced thermal sensitivity and HD visible cameras to provide superior performance within a compact package for the support of our NATO allies and the U.S. Army’s Short Range Reconnaissance Tranche 2 program of record,” said George Matus, CTO of Red Cat.

The Hadron 640 series products are all dual use and classified under U.S. Department of Commerce jurisdiction.
