OWL 320 HS VIS-SWIR

Stabilised High Speed InGaAs Vis-SWIR and SWIR


The OWL 320 HS 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 camera offers a full frame pixel resolution of 320 x 256, with a pixel pitch of 30µm x 30µm.

The OWL 320 HS VIS-SWIR  offers unsurpassed speeds of 344 Hz full frame (faster when using ROI) for ultrafast applications with high sensitivity response in the range 0.4 to 1.7µm.

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

  • Vis-SWIR technology – Enables high sensitivity imaging from 0.4µm to 1.7µm
  • QE > 80% @1.55µm – great responsitivity from 1.1 to 1.55µm
  • Frame rates of up to 344Hz full-frame – 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
