OWL 320 High Speed SWIR

Cooled ¼ VGA High Speed InGaAs


The OWL SW1.7HS offers the latest SWIR sensor technology providing unprecedented day-night surveillance performance.

Featuring a State of the Art high sensitivity InGaAs FPA sensor the OWL SW1.7HS offers pixels resolution of 320 x 256, with pixel pitch of 30µm x 30µm.

The OWL SW1.7HS series offers unsurpassed speeds of 346 Hz for ultrafast applications with high sensitivity response in the range 0.9 to 1.7µm, allowing exposure time from 500ns to 500ms.

The OWL SW1.7HS camera features:

  • SWIR technology – Enables high sensitivity imaging from 0.9µm to 1.7µm
  • Optional Visible extention – Enables high sensitivity imaging from 0.4µm to 1.7µm
  • 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
