FLIR Systems Introduces Ultra 9HD Airborne Thermal Camera

July 17, 2008  | 


FLIR Systems of Portland, Ore., has introduced of the Ultra 9HD, the latest generation of its Ultra series of airborne thermal imaging systems. The 9-inch EO/IR imaging system is designed for airborne law enforcement platforms.

Ultra 9HD features FLIR's large-format 640x480 InSb thermal imaging array with a 1.2-degree narrow field of view, and a high definition 1920x1080 daylight camera. FLIR's unique dual-channel optical path couples the high-def daylight camera with a long range 640X480 EMCCD low-light imager.

Ultra 9HD's options include a laser rangefinder, illuminator, and pointer payloads, as well as an IMU/GPS/Nav solution. The Ultra 9HD boasts matched narrow fields of view, making it easier than ever to maintain situational awareness, exercise precise system control, and deliver consistent mission effectiveness, according to the company.

The highest performance multi-sensor system in its class, Ultra 9HD is compact, lightweight, low-drag, and gyro-stabilized. Ultra 9HD's has design features made to simplify the airborne law enforcement operator's daily grind. An integral quick-disconnect mount makes getting the system on and off an aircraft simple. The 9HD's "ECU-less" design eliminates the weight of external electronic "black boxes," along with the weight of long cable runs.

Ultra 9HD's analog and digital video signals integrate with high or standard definition displays and recording devices. Its expanded interface capability allows it to work seamlessly with GPS units, moving maps, searchlight slaving units, and radar systems. The new, TFO-designed joystick controller provides full operational control of the Ultra 9HD, providing instinctive and ergonomic use over long missions.

"FLIR is proud to be the world's leading supplier of thermal imaging systems to the airborne law enforcement community, and we're excited to continue our leadership in the development of EO/IR products with the Ultra 9HD," said Earl Lewis, FLIR's chief executive. "The Ultra 9HD is a truly revolutionary product."
