This clip on system attaches directly to a Canon 5D (and other SLR camera models) camera, allowing its operators to suddenly see through haze, smoke, and dust for enhanced long range ISR applications, or to detect SWIR markers or beacons. An optional covert SWIR laser illuminator can also be directly mounted to the camera to enable ID-quality imagery in total darkness.
SWIR imaging holds several advantages over other imaging techniques. Visible and night vision systems can’t image through smoke or haze, and bright lights and flashes can degrade their performance. Thermal imagers may be able to image through haze or dust, but they can’t image through glass. SWIR technology addresses and solves these limitations and provides target accuracy with enhanced situational awareness.
