Tenum® 640

10 micron pixel pitch LWIR

The Tenum 640 represents the smallest pixel pitch long-wave infrared camera core on the market. It delivers striking detail and sensitivity in a compact and cost-effective package.


The Tenum 640 is a cutting-edge, competitively-priced camera core that delivers exceptional imagery and is supported by a respected team of industry experts.

With a 10 μm pixel pitch and <30 mK NETD sensitivity, the Tenum 640 represents the latest evolution in low SWaP long-wave infrared technology. Made in the USA by Leonardo DRS, industry pioneers in high-sensitivity microbolometer technology, the series of 640 x 512 resolution cameras is distributed and supported in North America exclusively by Sierra-Olympic Technologies, Inc. As a trusted supplier and OEM partner, Sierra-Olympic works directly with Tenum 640 customers to ensure successful systems integration, out-of-box operation, and follow-up support.
