the X26 camera can be outfitted with short, medium, long and extreme long distance zoom telephoto lenses for detection ranges beyond 10 km.

The X26 HFIS BsTFA Camera is a true starlight night vision/low light, ultra low lux sensor that offers high definition/high sensitivity day like image quality in the darkest of nights. For Decades there has been attempts to create a quality low light sensor that works as good or better than image intensified night vision I2 technology, this endeavor has been put to-the challenge for many years with little to no achievement in performance compared to generation 3 latest omnibus night vision devices. The ability to create a digital true day night sensor is finally here with the advent of the X26 HFIS BsTFA. Now a single camera can image in full daylight, into the darkest of nights uninterrupted. Being dully digital the X26 sensor open up a wide array of compatibility with others sensors and systems. The X26 performs its best in dark night environments without the sensor slowing down to lagging slow frame rates in order to compensate for dark scenes, the X26 continues to operate at full TV frame rate in the darkest of nights offering HD image quality that is a true enhancement to SWIR, LWIR, MWIR, FLIR Thermal Imaging as well as I2 Image intensified systems.

Next generation night vision systems will use Digital HD Sensors to produce multi-spectral imagery for both local and remote viewing by soldiers, firefighters, commercial / industrial users and search and rescue teams to name a few. Currently the gold standard for VNIR sensors is the GENIII night vision tube. Although these tubes achieve a very high level of performance with minimal power dissipation, they cannot be used in elaborate night vision systems because they do not produce digital data. Several different VNIR sensor technologies are being actively investigated to remedy this problem. Although the most popular technologies are electronic image intensified sensors, low light CCDs, emccd, CMOS, and SWIR’s, The X26 HFIS BsTFA Sensor Camera offer many advantages for this application. Some of these advantages include: Affordable, high MTF, high reliability, small size, low weight, low-cost system on chip integration, day night single sensor imaging, and imaging out to 1.1 µm. Moreover, the spectral range the X26 allows for the use of covert illumination outside the range of standard GaAs photo-cathodes, and imaging of 1.06 µm illumination sources. The Sensor is used for a wide variety of scientific and R&D analysis application, such as photovoltaics, inspection of Damaged PV modules.

Image sensor

The BsTFA ( Broad Spectrum Thin-Film Array ) detector has very unique properties for extreme photon gathering capabilities, the sensor collects light even in the darkest of nights and transforms the faintest of starlight into a day like picture for the user, therefore producing a crisp bright high definition image.
