With growing applications in industrial 3D metrology, machine vision, automotive obstacle avoidance, security and security, and other digital imaging applications, the demand for optical and image sensors has also grown. Abrisa technologies offers sensor and scanning window solutions with a unique combination of performance coating design and volume glass fabrication.
Common 'intrusive' testing methods, while not technically destructive, are often messy, time-consuming, and render samples unusable for production. Non-contact testing and evaluation conducted via IR active thermography overcomes these hurdles.
Innovative Glass Micro Bonding sealing technology is enabling unprecedented miniaturization and wireless signal transmission for medical implants, MEMS devices, and other electronic and optical devices.
BaySpec’s OCI™-UAV hyperspectral imagers are ultracompact, easily deployable, high-performance hyperspectral cameras designed specifically for use on small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), to monitor the details of spatial, temporal, and spectral representation of ground objects. This application note presents the benefits that these imagers offer and delivers example images for multiple topography analysis.
