FLIR Boson – the search is over

Boson longwave infrared (LWIR) thermal camera cores set a new standard for size, weight, power, and performance. Imagine your next big idea, and bring it to life with Boson.

FLIR's XIR™ expandable infrared video processing architecture gives Boson advanced image processing, video analytics, peripheral sensor drivers, and several industry-standard communication interfaces that make it easy to integrate while keeping power consumption low.

Its remarkable imaging performance begins with Boson's 12µm pitch vanadium oxide (VOx) uncooled detector, which comes in two resolutions: 640x512 or 320x256. Boson is available with lots of different lenses, so you're sure to find a configuration that's just right for your next project.

Why Boson?

  • Thermal Camera Core with Revolutionary Size, Weight & Power (SWaP)
    Its remarkably low SWaP (starting at just 7.5 grams and 4.9 cm3) and extreme flexibility lets you trade features for power consumption
  • Powerful FLIR XIR Video Processing – An Industry-Leading System-on-a-Chip
    FLIR's expandable infrared video processing with embedded industry-standard interfaces empowers advanced processing and analytics
  • Premium Brand at Value Price
    Boson new design lets FLIR bring you high resolution cameras at low resolution prices

 



Imagine what you can do with Boson

Boson takes your next generation of thermal imaging products off the white board and makes them a reality. Its combination of ground-breaking SWaP, state-of-the-art imaging, and wide range of built-in image processing and interface capabilities make Boson the obvious choice.

Whether you're designing cameras for drones, security, firefighting, thermal sights, or handheld imagers, Boson is small, light, and powerful enough to enable your most innovative designs. Boson's competitive price and flexible integration options dramatically shorten design cycles, opening up entirely new possibilities for any thermal sensor-based product you can imagine.

Applications

  • Handheld thermal-imaging systems for first responders, military/paramilitary, and thermography
  • Security & surveillance systems
  • UAV & robotic vision
  • Navigation
  • Obstacle Avoidance
  • Automotive driver's vision enhancement

 

The FLIR Boson™ 320 x 256 2.3mm longwave infrared (LWIR) thermal camera core is a giant leap forward in thermal imaging performance, size, and price. With its embedded Movidius Myriad 2 12-core image processor, wide range of lens options, and FLIR's XIR™ expandable infrared video processing architecture, it allows system integrators to take their thermal applications to far greater heights. Perform on-board video analytics, drive external sensors and peripherals, and communicate over multiple standard communication interfaces such as USB 3.0 with Boson.
