This range-gated, two-dimensional imaging camera system operates in the eye-safe Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) band and supports mounted and dismounted operations. The system includes a 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.
