DRS Technologies, Inc. (Arlington, VA) has expanded its Tamarisk® product line by introducing the high-resolution Tamarisk®640, which is designed for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to incorporate into their products. The Tamarisk®640 camera module generates a sharp thermal image with a resolution of 640 × 480 pixels, advancing the groundbreaking technology of the tiny Tamarisk®320 released in 2011.

The Tamarisk®640 detects long-wave infrared energy to produce exceptionally clear images at extended distances, employing an advanced 17 μm pixel pitch focal plane array. Its uncooled vanadium oxide detector senses infrared waves (heat), rather than visible light. The Tamarisk®640 creates highly defined video images of people, structures, vehicles and objects not only in bright sunlight, but also in atmospheric conditions degraded by smoke, haze, dust or light fog, or even in total darkness.
