What are the characteristics of SWIR shortwave infrared?

l  Higher resolution

 

l  Strong fog penetration ability

 

l  Low-light imaging (night vision capability)

The glow of the atmosphere at night contains shortwave infrared components. Shortwave infrared can be imaged in the lowest starlight night, with a particular night vision capability.

 

l  Identify the target

Shortwave infrared is very sensitive to moisture. Objects lacking moisture appear white, and objects rich in moisture appear black, help to identify inanimate objects.

 

l  Detection of concealed lighting

Illumination with a wavelength of 1550nm, which is safe for the human eye, is invisible to the naked eye but can be easily seen by a shortwave infrared camera.
