Is HOT MWIR a better fit?

Cooled midwave infrared (MWIR) cameras have long held a tactical advantage over uncooled longwave infrared (LWIR) cameras in many airborne and ground-based missions. But while cooled MWIR cameras are highly sensitive, they are also larger, heavier, require more power, and cost more than uncooled LWIR cameras. Recent advancements in High Operating Temperature (HOT) MWIR technology, however, opens up new possibilities.

HOT MWIR cameras are a new class of imager with the following advantages over cooled MWIR: faster time to image, extended cooler lifetime, and improved size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP+C). The FLIR Neutrino™ LC is a new SWaP optimized HOT MWIR camera that fits in the palm of your hand, uses less than four watts, and is suitable for missions previously dominated by uncooled LWIR cameras.
