When The Going Gets Tough: Ruggedizing G&H's Hi-Res SWIR Lens Systems (And Others)

Source: G&H

G&H’s world-leading expertise in optical system design for harsh environments, including space and A&D, is founded on the use of best-in-class materials, image sensors, and control electronics for variable zoom and focus, in solutions that span the infrared and multi-band spectrum.

One arena that presents particularly interesting opportunities for us to go above and beyond in accommodating our customers’ special requirements is SWIR – Short Wave Infrared.

SWIR is favored for many applications because it delivers a number of benefits over other wavelengths. At long ranges and in low visibility conditions, for example, the signal-to-noise ratio and image quality in the SWIR band are significantly better than in other bands such as NIR and the visible spectrum.

This tends also to result in more stable, error-tolerant imaging, delivering an extended range of coverage and better image interpretability, and making SWIR a good fit for many ground, air, maritime, and space deployments.
