Made in USA, the Boson+ sets a new industry standard for longwave infrared (LWIR) OEM thermal camera performance and size, weight, and power (SWaP). It features an industry-leading thermal sensitivity of less than or equal to (≤)20 mK and an upgraded automatic gain control (AGC) filter delivering dramatically enhanced scene contrast and sharpness in all environments. Improved video latency enhances tracking, seeker performance, and decision support. With an optimized 12 µm 640 x 512 focal plane array (FPA) and AGC, Boson+ is now even more the go-to thermal camera module for defense, industrial, and commercial integrators.

Boson+ maintains the widely deployed and real-world-proven Teledyne FLIR Boson mechanical, electrical, and optical interfaces allowing plug-and-play with existing designs. The easy-to-use Boson SDK, user-friendly GUI, and comprehensive product integration documentation further simplify OEM integrated into a new system designs. Enhanced LWIR thermal performance and industry-leading reliability provide low-risk development, making Boson+ the ideal dual use thermal camera module for integration into unmanned ground vehicles (UGV), unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), wearables, security applications, handhelds, and thermal sights.


 

ADVANCED PERFORMANCE WITH IMPROVED THERMAL SENSITIVITY CONTRAST, AND LATENCY
Industry leading NEDT of ≤20 mK extends thermal scene details and detection, recognition, and identification (DRI) performance

INDUSTRY-LEADING SIZE, WEIGHT, AND POWER (SWAP)
A full-featured VGA LWIR thermal camera module just 7.5 grams and less than 4.9 cm³

DESIGNED FOR INTEGRATORS
Shared mechanical/electrical compatibility across all Boson provides plug-and-play with existing designs
