SWIR cameras for laser gated imaging


Laser gated imaging is an active imaging technique that dates back to the 1960s. It has a couple of advantages over traditional imaging as it does not rely on any natural light sources or thermal emissions. Nowadays laser gated imaging is often used for long-range observation for security and target identification, imaging in adverse weather and/or atmospheric conditions, active polarimetry and 3D imaging.

The new Bobcat-320-Gated SWIR camera is specially designed for these applications. It has special features like

  • Extreme hort exposure time (100 nsec)
  • Trigger-in and jitter-free trigger-out
  • Programmable trigger-out delay between the internally generated trigger-out pulse and the start of the integration.
