Meeting Optical Needs For Drones
By Dr. Nissim Asida, Director, R&D and Engineering, Ophir

UAV optics with higher MTF values and lower F# are used more frequently as detectors become larger in size and smaller in pixel size in order to maximize imaging performance. This article describes the essential improvement of lens quality with higher performance levels in order to ensure that UAVs operate with the highest performance possible.

Why SWIR And InGaAs Are Useful
By Sensors Unlimited - UTC Aerospace Systems

Sensing in the shortwave infrared (SWIR) range (wavelengths from 0.9 to 1.7 microns) has been made practical by the development of indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) sensors. This white paper covers the importance of using InGaAs technologies in SWIR applications.

Laser Illumination For High-Speed Imaging
By Photron, Inc.

An incorrect or poorly lit subject affects the image, regardless of camera system quality. Therefore, the illumination source is just as important as the camera's resolution and sensitivity. See how a laser can be used for illumination in these four high-speed imaging application examples.
