Teledyne FLIR Boson+ Thermal Camera Now Available with Factory-Integrated Continuous Zoom Lens

Teledyne FLIR, part of Teledyne Technologies Incorporated, today announced the first Boson+ thermal camera module with its factory-integrated, high-performance 14 mm to 75 mm continuous zoom (CZ) lens. With seamless optomechanical integration, the new Boson+ CZ 14-75 reduces development and operational risk and costs, all with an industry-first warranty that is not available when using multiple suppliers. The reliable Boson+ CZ 14-75 is ideal for unmanned aerial vehicles, perimeter surveillance, light armored vehicle situational awareness and targeting, and soldier sighting systems.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​“The Boson+ CZ 14-75 camera and lens are factory-designed and integrated to optimize performance and reliability,” said Dan Walker, vice president, product management, OEM cores, Teledyne FLIR. “Thanks to flexible and advanced lens control electronics, industry-leading 20 milliKelvin (mK) thermal sensitivity, and US-based integration support, the Boson+ CZ 14-75 streamlines development for applications requiring high-performance infrared zoom capability.”

By completing the factory alignment at Teledyne FLIR, integrators receive a thermal zoom solution calibrated for maximum performance that eliminates boresight wander and other image artifacts while zooming. Critical to dynamic missions, Teledyne FLIR’s advanced lens control electronics provide thermal gradient compensation to maintain focus across the full operational temperature range while object range compensation maintains focus through zoom, even for near targets. Built-in tests (BIT) run at startup, continuously, or are commanded to provide real-time notification of issues and maximize operational reliability.

Made in the USA, the Boson+ CZ 14-75 features the latest 12-micron pixel pitch 640x512-resolution thermal detector offering enhanced detection, recognition, and identification (DRI) performance, especially in low-contrast and low-visibility environments. Customers also enjoy access to the US-based Teledyne FLIR Technical Services team for integration support. Boson+ CZ 14-75 is dual use and classified under the US Department of Commerce jurisdiction as EAR 6A003.b.4.a.

The Teledyne FLIR Boson+ CZ 14-75 is available for purchase globally from Teledyne FLIR and its authorized dealers. To learn more or to purchase, visit www.flir.com/bosonpluscz.
