The Nocturn Series of low light camera cores provide day-through-night imaging, capturing images in extreme lighting conditions from daylight through starlight condition. Nocturn Series is ruggedized, making them ideal for surveillance, security, and mobile applications such as border patrol, reconnaissance UAVs and armored vehicle perimeter monitoring. Optimized for size, weight and power (SWaP) requirements, the Nocturn Series is also a well-suited imaging solution for man-portable uses such as weapon sights, helmet displays, and monocular.


The Nocturn Series of low light camera cores are ruggedized, passive, low-light imaging cores that feature high-definition resolution, high sensitivity and high dynamic range with low power consumption. Powered by the Photonis Lynx CMOS sensor or the SmartColor imaging sensor, the Nocturn Series provides real-time imaging capabilities (from daylight to bright starlight scene illumination) in the visible and near infrared spectrum in either monochrome or color. Its small size, low weight and low power usage (SWaP) make this core module ideal for integration into mobile and handheld surveillance systems.
