MWIR Camera Module + Continuous Zoom Lens

Neutrino® Ground ISR Series

Model: Neutrino LC - ISR 20-420 Go to Product Support
product image

The Neutrino Ground ISR series provides turnkey solutions for integrators developing intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) systems. The cameras combine Teledyne FLIR’s world-class mid-wavelength infrared (MWIR) camera modules and continuous zoom (CZ) lenses with market-leading image processing and control electronics from InVeo Designs LLC. Each camera offers high-performance imaging, a reliable long-life linear cooler, and a low switching cost to upgrade existing systems. The factory-integrated and optimized MWIR imaging systems from a single source provide market-leading performance while reducing development risk, cost, and time to market.

They incorporate multiple focal plane array (FPA) resolutions and CZ lens options with industry standard image processing and interface electronics, allowing for differing detection recognition and identification (DRI) requirements and affordability. With four configurations today and more coming soon, the ITAR-free cameras provide the imaging performance required for short, mid, and long-range ISR, perimeter surveillance, border surveillance, and counter-UAS (CUAS) applications.

All Neutrino Ground ISR cameras can run Teledyne FLIR’s Prism™ AI detection, tracking, and classification models and Prism ISP libraries for super-resolution, turbulence mitigation, contrast enhancement, and more.

Turnkey Solution for Integrators


    The right focal lengths, MWIR HD or SD cameras with long-life linear coolers and fully integrated CZ optics maximize DRI while providing best-in-class MTTF and warranty.


    Industry-adopted AgileCore™ imaging electronics with integrated MWIR camera and CZ lens offer optimum performance and compatibility.


    The performance, reliability, and support expected from Teledyne FLIR and the industry’s most versatile HD MWIR camera portfolio.

Detection Recognition and Identification (DRI)
The detection, recognition, and identification (DRI) probabilities are modeled using the industry-standard NV-IPM passive sensor modeling tool. The NV-IPM model results are for the NFOV zoom position with a target dimension of 3.1 m and temperature of 4.0K. V50 is the range at which there is a 50% probability of achieving the task.
