Customers with a clear-eyed view of the solution’s basic specifications, budget, and expected timeline are well-positioned for an efficient, effective custom design experience.

Short-Wave Infrared Temporal Multiplexing For Cost-Effective Multispectral Solutions
Application Note | By Michael Stelzl, Xenics

Temporal multiplexing is an alternative approach to hyperspectral imaging that uses a fast LED technology. Instead of broadband illuminating and diffracting the spectrum of light in the camera, a broadband sensitive chip is used, and the illumination spectrum is varied over time via fast triggering.

Imaging Through Atmospheric Obscurants
Article | Sensors Unlimited – A part of Collins Aerospace

The Salt Lake City Valley in Utah sometimes experiences trapped air pollution in the atmosphere that severely reduces ground visibility. This article demonstrates the difference between using visible light and SWIR cameras to provide greater detail in imaging, even in challenging conditions.
