LightShift SWIR Snapshot Multispectral Camera

Downloads

LightShift™ SWIR enhances survivability using shortwave infrared imaging to detect and identify threat materials at a stand-off distance in real-time.

SPECTRAL IMAGING FOR DYNAMIC ENVIRONMENTS
LightShift™ SWIR’s unique snapshot spectral imaging design provides for a portable, field-deployable camera capable of collecting full spectral datacubes in a single exposure and eliminating motion artifacts. Unlike previous snapshot spectral imagers, LightShift™ processes spectral data at video-rates (30 fps), including automated calibration and spectral correlation algorithms, enabling live continuous monitoring of the scene for increased situational awareness.

CUSTOM FILTER SETS FOR YOUR TARGET MATERIALS
Custom filter sets with up to sixteen bandpass filters optimize LightShift™ SWIR for your target materials. Our team will assist you in designing an array of custom filters specific to your targets with confirmed transmission/out-of-band blocking. The positioning of the filter tray at the front of the system’s lens allows convenient substitution of filter sets by users and makes each LightShift™ SWIR camera flexible, ready to be re-tasked for new targets.

UNIFORM PERFORMANCE ACROSS SYSTEMS
Snapshot multispectral cameras currently in the marketplace typically employ a filter-on-chip design prone to inhomogeneities in the spectral filters due to micro-technological processing constraints. LightShift™ SWIR’s use of commercial off-the-shelf filters from high volume manufacturers delivers reduced fabrication costs and ensures consistent filter quality and photometry between LightShift™ cameras.

ADDED POLARIZATION IMAGING
Simultaneously capture spectral and polarization information for every pixel by adding optional polarizers to the filter set. Separately these dimensions provide a partial representation of the scene. LightShift™ SWIR joins them to achieve better classification performance for your targeted objects.
