This paper describes two camera systems based on the advanced 160 X 128 uncooled micro-bolometer FPAs. The UL3 ALPHA camera is in production and takes advantage of the patented bias equalization FPA performance to produce the world's smallest IR production camera. UL3 ALPHA weighs less than 195 grams, uses 1.5 W of power (nominal) and has a overall dimensions of 4.3 cm X 4.3 cm X 7.5 cm. ULS ALPHA production cameras have demonstrated 62 mK NEdT operation with over 99% operability.
