Paper Abstract

SYNERGI is a set of modules developed in collaboration between Thomson TTD Optronique, Pilkington Optronics, and Carl Zeiss. This module set is dedicated to new generation multipurpose high performance thermal cameras based on the SOFRADIR 288 by 4 element IRCCD detector. The manufactured products, as well as the various camera configurations designed, exhibit the key features of SYNERGI: cost effectiveness, compactness, flexibility, reduced power consumption. Special care has been taken in the technical design to minimize noise sources (early video digitization, power supplies synchronization), to maximize boresight stability (specific scan sensor), to enhance image characteristics (zoom modes, digital outputs, external synchronization), to make easy maintenance (dedicated serial link, BITE).
