Case Study

SWIR Camera Utilized In Cutting Edge Tornado Research

A team of researchers at Purdue University’s Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences Department recently tested the practicality of using shortwave infrared (SWIR) imaging for improving the detection of poorly-visible tornadoes in supercell thunderstorms. The team turned their attention to the Churchill Navigation ION digital recorder. The recorder’s ION and CameraLink adapter allowed the team to quickly connect and record video and metadata simultaneously from two different types of cameras; a SWIR camera provided by Sensors Unlimited and a visible-light camera.
