The LYNX CMOS Sensor is the first operational Night Vision and Homeland Security Digital Sensor based on full solid-state technology operating in both daylight and low-light level (equivalent to quarter moon). The LYNX CMOS Sensor offers new perspectives in connecting night vision to Command and Control (C4I), in urban and suburban surveillance at night and in advanced applications such as vehicle protection/surveillance and fusion of digital images such as visible (at night) and infra-red (IR).

The LYNX CMOS Sensor is a 1.3 MP image sensor with full SXGA 1280 x 1024 resolution, designed to provide excellent performance in low light level conditions.  The LYNX CMOS sensor can provide frame rates up to 100 frames per second (fps) at full resolution with < 4e- read noise, making it ideal for surveillance applications where high-resolution detection across varying light conditions is critical. With a power consumption under 350mW, the LYNX CMOS Sensor is ideal for man-portable systems, unmanned remote posts and CCTV surveillance where 24/7 image availability is required. The new sensor is designed for simple integration into a variety of camera platforms by either manufacturers or OEMs.
