FLIR High Resolution MWIR Camera Module Neutrino™ Performance Series

The Neutrino™ SX12 is a SXGA-resolution midwave infrared (MWIR) camera module from the FLIR Neutrino performance line. Based on a 1280 x 1024, 12 µm indium antimonide (InSb) focal plane array (FPA), the Neutrino SX12 is great for airborne or ground-based intelligence, Counter UAS (CUAS) and Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions by providing fast, high-resolution imagery while still preserving a compact optomechanical package.

Developed with system integrators in mind, the Neutrino SX12 possesses simple and powerful software controls, the industry standard interfaces, complete product documentation and FLIR OEM technical support to decrease product development risk and shorten time to market.

Configurable HD+ MWIR Core

Flexible detector types, frame rates, FPA window sizes, and optical interface options

  • The >1.3 megapixels provide crisp imagery for a small instantaneous field of view (IFOV) at longer standoff distances while maintaining a wide field of view (FOV)
  • 12.0 x 7.4 x 11.2 cm and 1.97 kg
  • 1280 x 1024, 12 µm pixel pitch FPA provides high resolution with greater sensitivity

Designed for Integrators

Simplify development and shorten time to market

  • Mature infrared video processing architecture and robust SDK
  • ITAR FREE: Classified under US Department of Commerce jurisdiction as EAR 6A003.b.4.a
