Midwave IR detector


Sofradir will introduce their new Daphnis range of 10μm pitch infrared detectors at SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing, 17 to 21 April in Baltimore.

It is the world's first HD format midwave IR detector based on the new 10-micron pixel pitch industry standard, which replaces 15-micron pixel pitch generation models. With 1280 x 720 pixels packaged to fit previous platform generations, Daphnis-HD MW enables imaging equipment used in airborne, naval and ground vehicles to achieve longer range, wider field of view and better resolution than previously available. This significantly improves target detection, recognition and identification ranges.

This year marks Sofradir's 30 anniversary, which they plan to celebrate at SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing. The company will co-host celebratory cocktails for invitees on Tuesday, April 19 in conjunction with subsidiaries Sofradir EC and ULIS, which make up the Sofradir Group.
