Paper Abstract

Name for Person Card: Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur First Light Imaging’ C-RED One infrared camera is capable of capturing up to 3500 full frames per second with a sub-electron readout noise and very low background. This breakthrough has been made possible thanks to the use of an e- APD infrared focal plane array which is a real disruptive technology in imagery. C-RED One is an autonomous system with an integrated cooling system and a vacuum regeneration system. It operates its sensor with a wide variety of read out techniques and processes video on-board thanks to an FPGA. We will show its performances and expose its main features. The project leading to this application has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement N° 673944.
