What is FLIR Boson?

What is FLIR Boson?

FLIR Boson® Thermal Camera Cores Utilizing FLIR’s advanced image processing and several industry-standard communication interfaces, Boson enables applications from firefighting to unmanned aerial vehicles and automotive development kits, all for as little as 800mW.

Is FLIR boson radiometric?

Can I get temperature information by post-processing from a FLIR Boson 2.0 thermal image? The current release of Boson is not radiometric.

What is a Boson camera?

The Boson family represents the most dynamic, highest-performing uncooled thermal imaging technology in the FLIR portfolio. FLIR Boson® – Lensless Core Compact LWIR Thermal Camera The Boson® longwave infrared (LWIR) thermal camera module sets a new standard for size, weight, power, and performance (SWaP).

What sensor does FLIR use?

Forward-looking infrared (FLIR) cameras, typically used on military and civilian aircraft, use a thermographic camera that senses infrared radiation.

What is uncooled VOx microbolometer?

Microbolometer. A microbolometer is a specific type of resistor used as a detector in a thermal camera. It is a tiny vanadium oxide (VOx) or amorphous silicon (a-Si) resistor with a large temperature coefficient on a silicon element with large surface area, low heat capacity and good thermal isolation.

What is thermal camera core?

Micro Core is a high-performance thermal camera with 200×150 resolution in a market-leading size footprint. Designed for small form factor, low power and lightweight applications, the Micro Core delivers high-end thermal capabilities, accuracy and performance that is unmatched in its price range.

What is difference between cooled and uncooled thermal camera?

There are currently two types of thermal imaging sensors on the market, cooled and uncooled. Uncooled thermal imaging sensors operate at ambient temperature. Cooled sensors are packaged in a unit that keeps them at an extremely low temperature. These systems—cooled by cryogenics—are incredibly sensitive.

Is the boson thermal camera a FLIR system?

Boson new design lets FLIR bring you high resolution cameras at low resolution prices. Four tapped M1.6×0.35 (rear cover). Lens support recommended when lens mass exceeds core mass. Ready to buy?

Which is better FLIR Tau or FLIR boson?

Smaller than the Tau® 2 core, FLIR’s other high-performance uncooled core, and double the size of the low-cost Lepton® core, Boson is the first thermal camera core to incorporate a sophisticated, low-power multi-core vision processor unit that helps make Boson the smartest thermal core on the planet.

What kind of particles are fermions and bosons?

All elementary particles (Quarks, Leptons, Guage Bosons, Static Bosons etc.) will fall under either of these two. Not only elementary particles, but also composite particles like Baryons (Eg: Protons, Neutrons etc.) will also fall under this basic classification of all particles into Fermions and Bosons.

Why is the FLIR boson important to the military?

– Military: Boson will allow our soldiers on the battlefield to use higher-performance thermal technology that is fit into smaller equipment and distributed more broadly because of the lower prices.
