Author Affiliations +
Indigo Operations, a division of FLIR Systems, Inc., has teamed with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) to develop an ultra high-speed, sixteen channel focal plane array camera that operates in the near-infrared (NIR) region of the electromagnetic spectrum. This science-grade camera can generate over 2,300 frames per second operating with a full-frame spatial resolution of 320 horizontal by 256 vertical pixels and over 22,000 frames per second when windowed to a spatial resolution of 64 by 64 pixels. The camera features FLIR's ISC0207 read-out integrated circuit that provides unique functional modes for the research community such as pixel binning, wavefront sensing, zero dead-time, and external synchronization. The camera employs a standard Camera Link® compatible interface for system control and image acquisition with FLIR's ThermaCAM® RToolsTM software suite. A pre-production version of the high-speed camera will be integrated into the AFRL Directed Energy Directorate's Starfire Optical Range at Kirtland AFB, New Mexico, to be used for adaptive optics research.
