MFE OGI Camera





Low power, small, lightweight optical gas imaging camera.

MFE OGI Detector

The MFE OGI camera brings together the very latest in detector, cooler and lens design for optimizing the visualization of methane, propane, butane, and many other hydrocarbon gas leaks.


Hand-held or Mountable to Boston Dynamics “Spot”

The MFE Optical Gas Imaging Camera is a multifunctional equipment solution that may be used as a handheld device or mounted onto Boston Dynamics’ Spot the agile, mobile robot. By pairing the MFE OGI camera with Spot, operators may rely on Spot’s unprecedented mobility to automate routine inspection tasks. Then, when further inspection is required, the MFE OGI camera can be removed from Spot and used as a hand-held device.

Resolution & Processing

The MFE OGI utilizes a new state of the art 640 x 512, 15µm pixel pitch “Hot MWIT” detector array with a special narrow bandpass cold filter in a miniature, long life, closed cycle, sterling cooler with an f/1.5 cold shield and an optimized purpose-built lens to provide unmatched thermal sensitivity.  A suite of advanced image processing functions including automatic gain and dynamic contrast control delivers visual acuity to operators for efficient leak detection and remediation.
