The reference LWIR staring array

  • Ground Vehicles
  • Commercial
Component

Description

Mars LW, manufactured in large quantities, is the reference LWIR (8-10 µm) staring array.
Sofradir’s MCT technology allows operations in LWIR waveband, the preferred solution for ground-based applications.
This high-performance IDCA takes full advantage of Sofradir’s state of the art technologies.
