I think every long-range system in the future will have a SWIR sensor built in, as it has become essential for daylight observation.
This SWIR camera's performance, reliability and low SWaP make it ideal for use in a variety of industrial applications that include process monitoring, enhanced vision and persistent surveillance.
Earlier, SWIR detectors were mainly produced for military and defense markets; however, this technology is now used in various commercial applications as well, such as temperature measurement, fire & gas detection, biomedical imaging, spectroscopy, semiconductor/ wafer inspection, and motion detection.
Infrared imaging is particularly important in the inspection of foods such as fruit, vegetables, nuts and meat, because NIR & SWIR radiation allows features below the surface of the object to be viewed, whereas standard cameras can only show surface information.
The primary signal independent noise mechanisms in SWIR focal plane arrays are the shot noise generated by the dark current and the noise caused by the readout integrated circuit.
The Gakkel cruise, along with a series of voyages to the SWIR between 1997 and 2005, led researchers to the unexpected discovery that these ultraslow ridges were completely devoid of transform faults.
SWIR technology detects reflected light at wavelengths that the human eye cannot see, providing real-time daylight-to-low-light imaging.
One of the applications of SWIR is to support first responders to look through smoke and haze created by wildfires.
