Teledyne FLIR, part of Teledyne Technologies Incorporated, today doubled its standard warranty to two years for Neutrino SWaP and Neutrino IS series designed for commercial, industrial, and defense original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and system integrators. With an industry-leading cryocooler mean time to failure (MTTF), Neutrino provides a cooled mid-wavelength infrared (MWIR) solution for imaging systems with size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP+C) constraints.
Cooled MWIR camera modules must be designed, tested, and manufactured to meet rigorous environment and reliability requirements. Recognizing that reliability and operational lifetime are predominantly determined by the lifetime of the cryocooler, Teledyne FLIR developed, tested, and manufactures the ruggedized, long-life, FL-100 linear cryocooler for its SWaP-optimized Neutrino MWIR camera modules. Based on lifetime tests and Weibull analysis, the MTTF of the Teledyne FLIR FL-100 cryocooler has increased to approximately 27,000 hours, significantly reducing the cost of ownership for systems using Neutrino.
The Neutrino MWIR camera portfolio continues to provide shortened time-to-market and reduced project risk with off-the-shelf design and delivery of high operating temperature (HOT) focal plane array (FPA) technology in 640x512 or 1280x1024 resolution. Teledyne FLIR can deliver high volumes of Neutrino, reducing supply chain risk of typically the most critical component in a high-level imaging system. The purpose-designed, factory-integrated continuous zoom (CZ) lenses and MWIR camera modules provide performance, cost, and schedule risk benefits unmatchable by other camera or lens suppliers.
Teledyne FLIR also provides highly-qualified technical services teams for integration support and expertise throughout the development and design cycle. Neutrino series are classified under US Department of Commerce jurisdiction as EAR 6A003.b.4.a and are not subject to International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).
