FLIR thermal camera withstands shocks up to 800 Gs

Dec. 1, 2011
FLIR's compact Quark thermal camera core design is based on wafer-level packaging of the microbolometer sensor.

The compact Quark thermal camera core’s design is based on wafer-level packaging of the microbolometer sensor. This design enables ultrasmall volume of less than 0.5 cubic inches, low mass of less than 20 g, and a shock rating of 800 Gs, which makes the camera suitable for integration into applications where space is constrained and the deployment environment sustains heavy vibration, such as unmanned vehicles and military/security surveillance operations.
