OWL 320 HS VIS-SWIR

Stabilised 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 full frame (faster when using ROI) 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 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
