Yokneam, Israel – June 18, 2013 – Senso Optics, a leader in the design, development and production of innovative thermal imaging technologies and advanced electro-optical solutions for military, paramilitary and security markets both in Israel and around the world, announces the new Miniature Thermal Sensor, the “X-Lite”. The X-lite is a compact and lightweight Thermal Imaging Camera core for night vision.

“We did a tremendous amount of work developing improved thermal technologies for our Camera line, and we were able to achieve genuinely impressive reproduction in miniaturized form,” says Jacob Dagan, President & CEO of Senso Optics. “The results were so successful that we were able to extend them to dedicated LWIR products like our new cameras and sensors systems. You simply have to see the video output in the field to believe what’s possible from a compact High-Resolution Thermal Sensor.”

The Senso Optics Thermal Sensor X-Lite is just 30mm x 34mm x 41mm size (with IO and power cards) and less than 80g weight. Boasting hi resolution 640×480, with 17μ pixel size, the X-Lite generates sharp and tremendously clear images which allow better detection, and enable the user to see clearly in total darkness. It gives law enforcement officers, Search & Rescue teams, HLS patrols and any other person that needs to see at night without being seen, the information needed to make critical decisions, enhance mission effectiveness, maximize operational capabilities and improve safety.

The X-lite is equipped with a Smart Algorithms e.g. – Anti-Blooming, Drivers for zoom & focus lens control, High detailing (HD) ClatinexTM algorithm, Temperature Range compression and more.

The X-Lite is utilizing HS Vox detector (NETD ≤ 32 mk) or ASi detector (NETD ≤50mk) and generates image instantly from “Power-On”.
