Nyxus Bird

Infrared Camera

Nyxus Bird

A most versatile multi-purpose measuring imager for ambitious missions:

Image switchable between thermal infrared channel and optical channel
Human detection beyond 2 km, vehicle detection beyond 5 km
Latest detector technology with (640 × 480) IR pixel
Just 1.5 kg weight

The handheld Nyxus Bird measuring imager by Jenoptik is a perfect combination of useful reconnaissance features and portability.

Infrared Sensor
The uncooled focal plane array of Nyxus Bird is utilising the newest European 17 µm pitch detector technology. Low-noise images with automatic brightness control provide clear and efficient imaging in any viewing situation.

Lens / Optical System
The high-resolution Germanium lens supports infrared imaging with maximum transmission and resolution to suppress detector noise and to yield well focused pictures. The rigid lens system is modified with additional DLC coating for durability and easy maintenance. For viewing a high-resolution (800 x 600) OLED display with adjustable brightness is used, under any ambient light condition it gives a well-balanced image. The daylight channel is operated by a (7 x 42) monocular with a high-transmission multicoating to suppress reflections and glare even under critical observation conditions. For quick tactical evaluations precision engraved reticles are integrated into both spectral channels.With just one finger-tip the actual image can be switched between both thermal and optical channel.

Laser Rangefinder
A high-precision eyesafe laser rangefinder is integrated into the Nyxus Bird body, it allows measurements up to 5 km distance. Due to the operational wavelength of 1,550 nm it cannot be detected by the image intensifiers of tube-based night vision devices. Up to three consecutive measurements can be stored. The viewinder displays target distance and target coordinates.
