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 or 50 mm lens models, the Vayu HD is the highest-resolution uncooled LWIR camera on the market, and at just 450 and 500 grams, it sets a new standard for high-performance, low SWaP thermal imaging capability for aerial integration.

The camera features a USB3.0 raw video output for more universal compatibility, an open chassis for the lightest possible integration weight and an F/1.2 lens with a high-durability AR coating for calibrated optical performance. Integrators and end-users also benefit from an on-board image processor that provides H.264/H.265 encoded RTP output, advanced image processing functions, and the ability to implement optional features such as object tracking and detection with telemetry, NMEA metadata packaging and more.
