04.22.16 -- Live From SPIE Defense+Commercial Sensing - Part 2
Check out the videos and news below to see some of the innovations highlighted this week at SPIE Defense+Commercial Sensing 2016.
Sensors Unlimited Non-ITAR Small SWaP SWIR Cameras
Sensors Unlimited offers two mil-rugged, non-ITAR small-SWaP SWIR-InGaAs cameras for real-time, low-light imaging in the shortwave-infrared spectrum. The 320CSX Micro SWIR™ camera delivers 320 x 512 pixel resolution; the 640CSX Micro SWIR™ camera delivers 640 x 512 resolution. Applications include industrial process monitoring, enhanced vision, and persistent surveillance.
Having worked with SWIR technology since its inception in the 90s, Sensors Unlimited — UTC Aerospace Systems is well-suited to offer guidance on the ins and outs of selecting a SWIR imager. At SPIE’s DCS 2016 exhibition, Brendan Murphy spent some time with Photonics Online to school us up on the three primary things one should consider before purchasing a SWIR imager — resolution, global availability, and cost. Watch the video to learn more.
On day two of SPIE’s 2016 DCS exhibition, Martin Ettenberg, CEO of Princeton Infrared Technologies, took some time out of the day to explain how SWIR technology is uniquely poised for use in moisture and chemical detection. Check out the video for a demonstration on the show floor, as well as detailed information on how and why SWIR technology can help you with the aforementioned application areas.
Vincent Farley with Telops offers insight into what to consider before selecting a high speed infrared camera. Watch the video to learn how speed, temperature range, spatial resolution, sensitivity, and spectral emissivity should be considered during the selection process, and how these five things work in parallel with one another.
Hyperspectral imaging technology has advanced significantly in the last 50 years, and Greg Staples with Bayspec talked with us for a few minutes at the 2016 SPIE DCS exhibition about how it has changed. Watch the video to learn more about how its growth, and how these advancements have allowed it to be more commonly used in commercial applications.
