FLIR has acquired a company specializing in low-light color imaging to complement its existing portfolio of thermal/IR imaging. The company, Salvador Imaging, manufactures a range of SD and megapixel cameras. The SD cameras offer high frame rates (up to 60fps) while the 16MP camera provides up to 3.5 frame rates.
Salvador's cameras have historically been sold to the very high end of the market such as government and military projects.
FLIR paid $13 Million USD cash for Salvador Imaging.
Previously, in 2007, Salvador Imaging was acquired by Photon Dynamics for a combination of cash and stock of approximately $20 Million USD.
[Update: FLIR discontinued those cameras.]
