Dragon View Electro-Optical/Infrared Sensor

The Dragon View Sensor is an electro-optical/ infrared (EO/IR), pan-tilt- zoom, mechanically and digitally stabilized gimbal sensor; providing day and thermal imagery, video recording, object tracking and geolocation data. It is ideal for integration on air vehicles, antenna towers, and other structures. For optimal imagery, the sensor comes equipped with high resolution of 336×256 (4x digital zoom ), or 640×512 (8x digital zoom). It also features a Slow Frame Rate of < 9Hz or a Fast Frame Rate of 30Hz. Operating at 10.6 watts, the low power draw enables more efficient use of the battery system for longer duration.

Off-the-shelf system comes standard with 25mm lens; options are available for a 13mm lens or a 19mm lens.
