Raptor Photonics offer a range of high-performance digital SWIR cameras covering the 0.9µm to 1.7µm spectral region for scientific, surveillance and aerospace applications.

The Raptor Photonics Owl 320 HS offers the fastest frame rates available in the Owl camera line-up (up to 349Hz in full frame resolution), perfect for high speed VIS-SWIR applications (0.4µm – 1.7µm). With Region of Interest (ROI) control, faster frame rates in the kHz region are achievable by setting smaller ROIs.

The Owl 640 S is a variant of the Owl 640 line-up, which offers faster frame rates (up to 300Hz) than the standard Owl 640. Using a different sensor, the camera has a response in the SWIR region, 0.9µm to 1.7µm.
