About LIVAR M506 Camera
The Intevac Laser Illuminated Viewing and Ranging (“LIVAR”) M506 SWIR camera is designed for use in a wide range of military and security applications including long-range target identification system payloads. The LIVAR M506 camera is a compact camera system that enables system integration with an eye-safe laser illuminator to range and view images of targets up to 20 kilometers away.
Intevac’s LIVAR® technology is analogous to RADAR but with a number of improvements. The system works day or night, regardless of available light. The illuminator is an eye safe laser and the reflected light is displayed as a digital video image. This enables real time, high-resolution imagery for target identification at much longer ranges than was previously possible.
Intevac’s digital night-vision sensors, based on its patented Electron Bombarded Active Pixel Sensor (EBAPS®) technology, provide state-of-the-art capability to the most advanced avionic fighting platforms in the
