OWL 320 High Speed VIS-SWIR

Cooled ¼ VGA High Speed InGaAs VIS-SWIR


The OWL 320 High-Speed VIS-SWIR offers the latest in VIS-SWIR sensor technology providing unprecedented day-night surveillance performance.

Featuring a State of the Art high sensitivity InGaAs FPA sensor the OWL 320 High-Speed VIS-SWIR offers pixels resolution of 320 x 256, with pixel pitch of 30µm x 30µm.

The OWL 320 High-Speed VIS-SWIR series offers unsurpassed speeds of 346 Hz for ultrafast applications with high sensitivity response in the range 0.4 to 1.7µm, allowing exposure time from 500ns to 5

The OWL 320 High-Speed VIS-SWIR camera features:

  • VIS-SWIR technology – Enables high sensitivity imaging from 0.4µm to 1.7µm
  • Peak QE of >90% – great responsitivity from 1.1 to 1.5µm
  • Frame rates of up to 346Hz – for ultrafast applications
  • Easy control of camera parameters – Control of Exposure, Frame rate, Gain, Temperature, trigger, etc.
  • Ultra compact, Low power (< 5W) – Ideal for hand-held, mobile or airborne systems
  • Rugged, No fan – Enables integration into UAV, handheld or any Electro-Optic system
