Brage LW

The world’s most reliable 320x256, 30µm pitch LWIR detector based on QWIP technology with thousands of fielded detectors. Easy integration at an affordable cost.


The Brage LW benefits from decades of IRnova's mastery of QWIP materials with a solid track record from several thousand detectors in the field. The 30 µm pitch version for low flux conditions combines inherent QWIP benefits (high uniformity, stability and operability) with state-of-the-art LWIR performance.


  • Border security and surveillance cameras
  • Air defence target tracking (including UAVs)
  • Industrial applications (thermography, NDT…)
  • Airborne / space earth imagery
