Tau 2

Longwave Infrared Camera

  • FLIR Tau 2 Longwave Infrared Cameras offer an unmatched set of features, making them well-suited for demanding applications like Unmanned Airborne Vehicles (UAVs), thermal sights, and handheld imagers.
  • Improved electronics provide powerful image processing modes that dramatically improve detail and contrast.
  • Its options include full radiometry, increased sensitivity (< 30 mK), and 640/60 Hz frame rates.
  • Since the Tau 2 640 and 336 configurations share electrical functions, common integrations can be designed that work seamlessly with both formats.
