ALICE - Uncooled Thermal Imager Core (UTIC) from SELEX Galileo S.p.A.

The Uncooled Thermal Imager Core (UTIC) is an electrooptical engine based on tate-of–the-art Vanadium Oxide microbolometer high resolution (640 x 480) focal planes. Dedicated A/D conversion and processing electronics, developed by SELEX Galileo, allows on-board processing capability to attain the best image quality.

 The advantages of the uncooled InfraRed (IR) technology means that there is no need for cryo-cooling devices, resulting in a reduction  in weight, size and power consumption of the thermal imager, and with an overall improvement to reliability.
