Description

Pluton LW, manufactured in large quantities (more than 25 000 units), is the reference for LWIR (8 – 12 μm) scanning arrays and is battlefield-proven.
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.
