Vayu HD

Full HD 1920 x 1200 LWIR

Featuring the world’s first full HD 1920 x 1200 x 12 µm uncooled microbolometer array, the Vayu HD is a cutting-edge LWIR camera core that delivers superior image clarity and situational awareness in a SWaP-optimized package. This is an invaluable asset for critical applications that require the maximum performance per unit gram possible.


Available in 25 mm, 50 mm and 87 mm lens models, the Vayu HD is the highest-resolution uncooled LWIR camera on the market. This camera will bring a small area into focus with high level of detail allowing the user to more accurately read an image from a further distance. With 87 mm model weighing < 1 kg this camera maintains low-SWaP capability while producing a highly detailed image making it excellent for aerial integration. You can connect this camera to your current equipment with the USB3.0 raw video output for universal compatibility. All users will benefit from an onboard image processor that provides H.264/H.265 encoded RTP output and advanced image processing functions. The F/1.2 lenses are coated with a high-durability AR coating and calibrated for optical performance. This camera also retains the ability to add optional features like object tracking and detection with telemetry, NMEA metadata packaging and more.
