Nellis Vid 7 F18 Takeoff Frame 15 Fusion

FLIR Systems has announced a new addition to its RS-Series of long-range infrared camera systems designed for range tracking, target signature, research, and scientific applications.

The new FLIR RS8300 couples a proprietary high-speed HD MWIR detector with a 10x continuous zoom lens in a sealed, ruggedized enclosure. Combining reliability with leading edge performance, the FLIR RS8300 delivers stunning megapixel infrared imagery at up to 200 megapixels per second.  To capture the most fleeting of events the camera is capable of lightning fast frame rates from full-frame resolution 14-bit data at125 fps to 64 × 64 at 2kHz. Additionally the RS8300 enables faster frame rates and focused analysis through FPA windowing.

Optimized imaging is ensured using the FLIR RS8300 four active preset operating modes to provide adjustable integration times, embedded non-uniformity correction, bad pixel replacement and window size adjustments.

Sealed in a positive pressure enclosure, the10x continuous optical zoom lens embeds the focus and focal length information, along with IRIG-B time stamp in every frame of data, allowing for TSPI work. Consequently this rugged camera is suitable for government test range tracking and phenomenology applications.

The RS8300 comes with FLIR’s powerful ResearchIR Max software enabling you to view, acquire, analyze, and share high speed data from the camera. Alternately, using FLIR’s SDK ActiveX component, you can command and control the camera with your own custom software.

FLIR Systems specialises in technologies that enhance perception and awareness.  The company brings innovative sensing solutions into daily life through its thermal imaging and visible light imaging technology and systems for measurement, diagnosis, location and advanced threat detection.  Its products improve the way people interact with the world around them, enhance productivity, increase energy efficiency and make the workplace safer.

FLIR Systems has six operating segments – surveillance, instruments, OEM and emerging markets, maritime, security and finally, detection. Of these six, ‘instruments’ is of greatest interest to trade and industry and the second largest segment in the company’s portfolio. This division provides devices that image, measure and assess thermal energy, gases and other environmental elements for industrial, commercial and scientific applications.

These products are manufactured across five production sites, three in the USA and two in Europe; Sweden and Estonia.

A model to suit every application and budget
The options that FLIR Systems provides for measuring temperature and studying thermal performance have never been greater.  Not only does the company offer a huge range of models to suit all thermal application needs but the technology is also affordable and very easy to use.  Thermal cameras now come in various shapes, sizes and degrees of sophistication and FLIR continues to invest heavily in the development of new and complementary technologies to differentiate itself from competitors.

An important milestone in the development of thermal imaging has been the introduction of the FLIR Lepton® core, a micro longwave detector, the size of a mobile SIM.  This has allowed thermal imaging to be repackaged to meet the needs of an even wider audience and, in combination with another new technology called Infrared Guided Measurement – IGM™ – has led to the development of a range of test and measurement meters with imaging capability.

Another important growth area for FLIR thermal imaging is in continuous monitoring to assure quality and safety.  Through its introduction of discrete fixed mounted thermal cameras which are fully compliant industry standard plug-and-play protocols, FLIR Systems has provided industry with infrared machine vision which is instantly ready for quick and easy network installation.

Protecting assets and people from fire is an area for which thermal imaging is least known but, thanks to FLIR Systems’ development, it is now one of the most cost-effective methods available.  Its application flexibility and rapid return on investment present an attractive proposition for any site or safety manager.
