The LIVAR® M506 Gated SWIR Camera System is ideal for covert operations and target identification, supporting lasers from 1.0 – 1.6 µm. Cost-effective, compact and lightweight, this range-gated, two-dimensional imaging camera operates in the eye-safe Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) band, provides day and night coverage, and supports mounted and dismounted operations. The camera system includes the camera, High Voltage Power Supply (HVPS) and Thermoelectric Cooler Controller (TECC). An optional high-PRF version is available that allows the use of low-power, high-PRF diode lasers with the camera in accumulation mode.
Working in conjunction with a range detector, the LIVAR® M506 system sets the range gate for the target location to provide a stream of digital images optimized for that range. The camera can be set to active master, active slave, or passive imaging modes to accommodate a variety of applications.
The LIVAR® M506 system offers system integrators an advanced long range surveillance camera at a low cost.

The camera’s eye-safe feature enables warfighters to safely engage targets using extended range weapon systems. LIVAR increases weapon system effectiveness and reduces the risk of unintended civilian casualties and fratricide.
The LIVAR camera requires a high voltage power supply (HVPS) and thermo-electric cooler (TEC) for operation which are available in various configurations depending upon the application.
With its small form factor and easy integration into existing electro-optical targeting systems, the LIVAR M506 offers system integrators an unmatched, cost-effective long range targeting and identification camera.
