Security & Surveillance

Long range surveillance, drone threat detection, observation through harsh weather conditions.. These are multiple applications tended to be covered by Visible CMOS sensors. However, they are intrinsically limited by the wavelength. Atmospheric turbulences, visibility through fog can be better approached with higher wavelength in the SWIR Band.

A new way of sensing for Defense & Security

SWIR is considered by many as one of the most versatile technology for the defense & security sectors. Bringing valuable information such as the ability to identify or recognize a target (e.g: compared to MWIR & LWIR band), it brings also a better vision through harsh weather conditions (fog, smoke).
With a low readout noise and a High Dynamic Range, NIT SWIR cameras, e.g: WiDy SenS, can cope with the challenging requirements of the Defense and security area.

Gated Imaging

GATED IMAGING provides the ability to image a specific depth slice of a scene. Applications are multiple, including observations through obscurants (severe weather conditions), estimation of distance and localization of obstacles (drone detection with background suppression). Imaging devices must be fast enough to cope with the reflected light.
NIT’s SWIR cameras offer at the same time, precision with the shortest effective exposure time, the shortest rise time and highest dynamic range on the market, enabling to cover a broad number of situations in the field, and any applications, including yours

Why NIT?

High Sensitivity in SWIR band

Best Gated performance
