Boson from FLIR Systems is a small, lightweight, high-performance uncooled thermal camera for OEMs. Boson is claimed to be the first thermal camera core to incorporate a sophisticated, low-power, multi-core vision processor running FLIR XIR expandable infrared video-processing architecture. The camera features a 12-µm pixel pitch detector for high-resolution thermal imaging. It offers several levels of video processing with inputs and processing for other sensors, including visible CMOS imaging sensors, global positioning systems and inertial-measurement units. Additionally, the device provides a suite of advanced image-processing features including super resolution algorithms, sophisticated noise reduction filters, local area contrast enhancement and image blending.
