High-performance cameras for Airborne

Raptor has been designing and manufacturing compact, SWaP optimised cameras for a range of airborne applications since 2006 with imaging solutions from UV to SWIR. Our cameras are ultra-sensitive, suitable for day, night and low-light vision and they are ruggedised to work in extreme conditions such as airborne gimbals and turrets. They are designed and to MilSpec standards.

The company offers both commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) and military (MOTS) cameras as well as custom OEM solutions.

  • BS EN ISO 9001:2015 and IPC Class 3 Quality accreditation
  • Cameras are built to MIL-STD-810F and MIL-STD-704F standards.
  • Cameras designed for EMC & Environmental stress, shock & vibration.
  • Our cameras are designed to work in harsh climates, with electronics operating from -40°C to +75°C and conformally coated enabling them to work in high humidity or condensation environments
  • Analogue and digital signal processing
  • Digital design including PCI, USB, LVDS, CameraLink, GigE and HD-SDI
  • FPGA (VHDL) development for imaging processing
  • High-speed analogue and digital design
  • Low noise pre-amp circuit development
  • Mechanical and Optical design.
  • Heat removal interfaces, e.g. heatsink-less conductive configurations
  • Chassis mounting options
  • Specific QC / testing to meet customer requirements

OEM options from board-level cameras to custom designs are available in a range of sensors, interfaces and layouts.
