  1. SWIR Camera For Applications Requiring Small Size, Weight, And Power (SWaP) Demoed At SPIE DSS

    Bob Jones, business development manager at Sensors Unlimited - Goodrich ISR Systems, shows the GA640C-15 SWIR camera. This camera is ideal for applications involving low-light-level imaging, covert surveillance, multi-laser spotting and tracking, imaging through atmospheric obscurants, integration into unmanned UASs, and handheld and soldier-mounted systems where small size, weight, and power (SWaP) are critical.

  2. Live From Photonics West 2012: Visible Variant Of The Argos Laser Introduced

    Robert Afzal, Ph.D., of Lockheed Martin Aculight introduces the visible variant of the Argos laser, which puts out more than 3 watts of visible light at 610 nm. It has enabled Nobel Prize winners to conduct cutting-edge research as well as helping Lockheed Martin Aculight’s defense and security customers deflect and jam heat-seeking missiles.

  3. Live From Photonics West 2012: New 1.3-Megapixel High-Resolution InGaAs SWIR Camera

    Doug Malchow of Sensors Unlimited - Goodrich ISR Systems demonstrates several new products, including the 1.3-megapixel GA1280J high-resolution InGaAs SWIR camera, a high-sensitivity, 1280 x 1024 pixel, 15-µm pitch, military-hardened SWIR camera (0.7 to 1.7 µm). It weighs less than 125 g and has a total volume of less than 4.3 cubic inches

  4. Live From SPIE Optics + Photonics 2011: Sensors Unlimited Details Their Imaging Capabilities

    Don Pancza, Sales Account Manager at Sensors Unlimited, shows a variety of cameras and discusses their applications, which include machine vision; military, homeland security, and defense; and solar inspection. With their InGaAs technology, Sensors Unlimited basically covers from .9 to 1.7 microns, beyond where visible, traditional, silicon CCD imagery falls off.

  5. Live From SPIE Optics + Photonics 2011: Jenoptik’s OEM Capabilities

    Ray Malcom, VP of Sales and Marketing, leads off this video with a brief overview of Jenoptik’s range of engineering and manufacturing capabilities for classical optics, polymer optics, and micro-optics, then turns to three others to give more information.

  6. Video Demonstration: Distributed Temperature and Strain Measurement using the OBR 4600™
    Luna Technologies' Distributed Temperature and Strain Sensing Software, when combined with the Optical Backscatter Reflectometer™ (OBR), transforms your standard telecom-grade fiber into a high spatial-resolution strain and temperature sensor.
  7. Live From DSS 2011: New Mil-Rugged InGaAs SWIR Camera Introduced

    In this video, Photonics Online gets introduced to the new GA-1280J-15A InGaAs SWIR digital video camera by Martin Ettenberg, Ph.D., director of business development for Goodrich ISR Systems. Launched at SPIE DSS2011, the GA-1280J-15A is 1280 x 1024 pixel, 15 um pitch, 60 Hz shortwave infrared camera.

  8. Shape Sensing Technology / 3D Shape Sensing Demonstration Video

    Luna's shape sensing optical fiber knows its own position in 3D space at every discrete point along its length and can be used to track the exact position of an object to which it is attached.
