LWIR Imager


Bodkin Design & Engineering (BD&E) developed technology for a LWIR imager for integration with the next generation of the Javelin Missile system for the US Army. The system includes networking and laser range finding capabilities for far-target location. The prototype developed by BD&E is based on an uncooled design which reduces power consumption requirements, weight, and the number of batteries needed by soldiers in the field.

Applications include:

  • Man-portable fire control and missile systems
  • UAV or vehicle-mounted surveillance and reconnaissance systems
  • Fire-fighting equipment
  • Medical imaging
  • Non-destructive testing and surveillance
  • Enhanced vision systems for aircraft and sea vehicles
  • Law enforcement
  • Predictive maintenance
  • Environmental monitoring
