The Kameleon CMOS color imaging sensor is the first operational sensor specifically designed with Night Vision, Homeland Security, Surveillance and Scientific applications in mind. This solid-state CMOS sensor provides excellent color imaging across varying light conditions, from daylight to low-light levels - such as those found during a quarter-moon.
The Kameleon CMOS pixel architecture offers the best compromise between inherent signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), high resolution and intrascene dynamic range. With total read-out noise below 4 e- without cooling, the KAMELEON CMOS sensor outperforms all low light imaging sensors down to 4 mlx while still supporting frame rates up to 100 fps at a full SXGA (1280 x 1024) resolution.
The Kameleon CMOS color sensor provides a single-solution technology for day through night imaging without additional illumination. The user can opt for color images in extreme low light conditions (~100 mlx) or utilize the sensor’s default monochrome image.
