Hyperspectral and Infrared Solutions.
Located in Quebec City, Canada, Telops designs and manufactures high-performance hyperspectral imaging systems and infrared cameras for defence, industrial, and academic research applications. Telops also offers R&D services for optical systems technology development in order to respond to the specific needs of its customers and caters to an international market.
Lotec is the distributor of Telops in Turkey.
The Hyper-Cam is an advanced passive infrared hyperspectral imaging system that combines high spatial and spectral resolution. It provides real-time radiometrically calibrated data for gas and mineral detection and identification. It is offered in ground-based format, but also as a compact airborne hyperspectral imaging system: the Hyper-Cam Airborne Mini.
The Hyper-Cam Airborne Mini is a revolutionary hyperspectral imaging system that is designed to fit small aircrafts and other compact vehicles. This lightweight imaging sensor is a versatile tool for hyperspectral IR surveys, and a unique instrument for real-time gas detection, identification and quantification.
The Telops multispectral infrared cameras are equipped with an 8-position fast-rotating filter wheel, which allows the scene signal to be split into different spectral bands rather than one broadband image, thus enabling spectral signature analysis. The filter wheel mechanism is designed to maximize the cameras’ frame rate and can be used in either fixed or rotating mode. Rotating speed is adjustable up to 100 Hz per filter, thus allowing a frame rate up to 800 fps in synchronised mode.
High Dynamic Range Cameras.
The HDR-IR cameras are ideal to measure scenes that include an extended temperature range. They are equipped with a fast-switching attenuation filter mechanism. With this mechanism, the cameras maximize the dynamic range during image acquisition by automatically selecting the best attenuation filter.
High-Performance FAST Cameras.
The Telops FAST camera series feature the fastest infrared cameras on the market. Available from the shortwave to the very long wave infrared bands, these cameras can address a broad range of measurement needs and applications.
With their high sensitivity, their impressive temporal resolution and their proprietary automated exposure control (AEC), the FAST cameras are perfect for analyzing dynamic events, as in ballistics, combustion or experimental mechanics experiments.
The FAST cameras are also available in HD or Super HD formats in the midwave bands to provide high image quality.
Entry-Level SPARK Cameras.
The Telops SPARK family of cooled MWIR cameras is designed to provide the IR imaging capabilities for which Telops is renowned at an affordable price. Available in both VGA and HD detector formats, SPARK cameras can be configured to meet your specific measurement requirements. When combined with the powerful yet intuitive Reveal IR acquisition software, the user is able to control all aspects of the data collection process.
All SPARK cameras feature Telops’ unique permanent radiometric calibration and Automatic Exposure Control (AEC) operating mode.

Gas Detection and Identification
With the Telops Hyper-Cam, scientists are able to detect and identify methane present in a scene, and to locate it precisely in an image or video, pixel by pixel. Recently, scientists from Linköping University, in Sweden, were thus able to « film » methane emissions in real time – a breakthrough that could play a significant role in the fight against climate change. Their results were published in the prestigious journal Nature Climate Change.
The Telops Hyper-Cam has also been successfully used by Total E&P under an R&D project to demonstrate the real-time 3D reconstruction of methane gas clouds. During the experiment, three Hyper-Cams were installed around the area being observed and networked to a central computer. Each Hyper-Cam produced in real-time a radiometrically calibrated hyperspectral image. The computer merged the hyperspectral data from the imagers to compute and display the 3D cloud as well as to estimate the leak rate. Total’s work has been presented at the SPE/ATCE Conference in Dubai, UAE, on September 28th, 2016.
