I have worked with Headwall Photonics for a number of years as a supplier of high performance camera lenses. This camera, depending on accesories etc, can be any where from $40K for a very basic unit to over $100K.

Keep in mind this is very typical for a camera of this type. Add in specialized imaging sensors, such as sCMOS, SWIR, etc and they could run you over $150K.

Juan, you can email me direct at:

I would be happy to sennd more info on what we are doing in FOPEN(Foliage Penetration).

Vega Tech: I would like to get some info on the FOPEN project please.
