Ventus Compact

MWIR camera for low SWaP applications

The Ventus compact is a cooled mid-wave infrared camera that combines the functionality and image quality of our larger Ventus cameras, but in a low SWaP package designed for integration into space-constrained systems and UAV/UAS.

Features

The Ventus Compact is the latest addition to the Ventus family of advanced Midwave Infrared (MWIR) cameras from Sierra-Olympic Technologies, Inc. Cameras in this product line feature continuous zoom, one-touch autofocus, advanced image processing, and a unified easy-to-integrate software architecture. The Ventus Compact is uniquely equipped with advanced ‘NUC Through Zoom’ calibration and a compact low-SWaP package.

The Ventus Compact delivers IP and HDMI video output as well as 16-bit CameraLink and USB 3.0 digital output. In-camera automatic gain control and advanced digital enhancement allow for flexible and adaptable thermal imaging.

Designed specifically for space-constrained integrations in airborne, handheld, and other low-SWaP applications, the Ventus Compact is the smallest, lightest, and most power-efficient camera in the Ventus product line.
