  1. Expanding The Dynamic Range Of Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) Imagery
    1/22/2010
    Advances have been made in short wave infrared (SWIR) imaging technology to address the most demanding imaging and surveillance applications. Multiple techniques have been developed and deployed in Goodrich’s SWIR indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) cameras to increase the dynamic range performance of standard, commercial off-theshelf (COTS) products.

  5. NIR Trends: Maximizing Solar Cell Yield And Efficiency With Machine Vision
    7/23/2009
    As the first decade of the 21st century draws to a close, the easy oil has been harvested and each new barrel will be more expensive to pull from the ground. With world demand for energy still expanding, and the impact of burning carbon based fuels burdening the atmosphere, the development and installation of efficient renewable energy sources has become crucial.
