Application Note

Defense Applications For SWIR InGaAs Cameras

Source: Xenics

The SWIR InGaAs camera is an ideal option for many defense applications due to key performance features such as an uncooled, small, lightweight design, sensitivity to nightglow, and attached covert eye-safe lasers. Unlike LWIR and MWIR imagers, SWIR imagers are able to see reflected light, and can offer close representations of what is seen in the visible spectrum. This application note provides an overview on many applications that SWIR InGaAs cameras are ideal for including detection of laser designators, nightvision, target recognition, and laser gated imaging.
