With its 9.7μm×9.7μm pixel pitch and 4e- median read noise, the Nocturn provides unsurpassed signal to noise at low light with video rates up to 60 frames per second. Built on Photonis expertise in night vision imaging, the Nocturn electronics incorporates a multitude of functions to enhance the low light level performance. The Nocturn MD features automatic gain control (AGC), automatic exposure control (AEC), non-uniformity correction (NUC), and advanced image enhancement, allowing the Nocturn to provide continuous situational awareness without compromising mobility and size, weight and power (SWaP).

The Nocturn MD imaging camera core is a rugged low light imaging core that features high definition resolution, high sensitivity and high dynamic range with low power consumption.

Powered by Photonis’ 1 inch optical format 1280×1024 pixels Lynx CMOS sensor and Micro OLED 1746×1000 pixels black and white monochrome micro-display, the Nocturn provides real-time imaging capabilities (from daylight to one quarter moon scene illumination) in the visible and near infrared spectrum. Its small size, weight and power SwaP make this core module ideal for integration into mobile and hand-held surveillance systems.
