Abstract
Lockheed Martin is developing the first ever 640 X 480 uncooled microbolometer camera. This camera, designated the LTC650, has a new 28 micrometers pitch 640 X 480 microbolometer focal plane array and electronics which operate at a 30 Hz frame rate. The electronics are based on previous successful 320 X 240 camera electronics which use low power, high performance DSP and FPGA technology. A DSP based software solution provides flexibility to answer the challenge of change and varied customer needs while meeting the low cost, low power, and low real estate requirements of portable, hand held applications. Test data for the first camera are presented.
