Description: The FLIR Systems AN/AAQ-22 Star SAFIRE electro-optical/infrared sensor has been designed to provide full digital high-definition (1280x720) video compliant with US and NATO specifications. This sensor system is suitable for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR), Search and Rescue (SAR), maritime patrol, border patrol, and force protection missions. It can be integrated on fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) such as the MQ-8B Fire Scout. Star SAFIRE HD features megapixel thermal, daylight, and low-light cameras with 120x magnification optics; laser payloads; and a fully-integrated Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) to precisely locate targets. All the items are mounted on a gyro-stabilized platform.
