Sierra Olympic Technologies Inc.

Ventus Micro

Sierra-Olympic presents the ultimate in low-SWaP HOT MWIR imaging camera cores.  Ventus Micro features 10X continuous optical zoom with 21° to 2.1° HFOV.  Weighing approximately 900g, Ventus Micro is designed for very small articulating volumes.


The Ventus Micro is Sierra Olympic's smallest, lightest, and most advanced Midwave Infrared (MWIR) camera core to date. The 640x512 10µm pixel pitch HOT MWIR engine is paired with an f/3.6, 17-170mm/21° – 2.1° HFOV (10X) continuous-zoom folded optic, creating a package able to fit in a 5.5" gimbal and weighing less than 870 grams. SOTI's unified command interface gives straightforward access to one-touch autofocus, automatic gain control, Contrast-Limited Adaptive Histogram Equalization (CLAHE), electronic image stabilization, denoise, sharpening, and other advanced processing features. The Ventus Micro is designed for integrators, with an array of video interfaces (including IP streaming, CameraLink, NTSC/PAL analog), RS232/485 control, and TTL serial and GPIO auxiliary interfaces. Ventus performance for SWaP-demanding applications!
