Video: Visible vs. SWIR Camera Imaging

This aerial video alternates between visible footage to shortwave infrared, both imaging the same forest fire scene. Note how the SWIR imager, captured with Sensors Unlimited's SU640KTSX camera, clearly shows the location of the flames, which the smoke hides from the visible camera. The cameras were integrated into a TASE Duo stabilized gimbal from Cloud Cap Technology. The TASE gimbal was mounted on a manned Cessna 172 flown at ranges between 7000 m and 2000 m from the fire hot-spots.
