NIT and the Challenge

Working and developing HDR imaging sensors and cameras from Visible to SWIR band, NIT operates in a large number of different industries, but most of NIT solutions are found in the fields of defense, security. The goal is to provide a clear vision in all lighting conditions, for example, harsh environmental conditions, day and night, for defending or protecting people.

Nominated for innovative image sensors, NIT project illustrates how NIT future SWIR Hyperspectral development can improve defense and civilian airborne vision systems.

"Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) is a technique that analyzes a wide spectrum of light instead of just assigning primary colors (red, green, blue) to each pixel. The light striking each pixel is broken down into many different spectral bands in order to provide more information on what is imaged." Armin Schneider, Hubertus Feussner

The advantage of this solution is reducing the cost for integration and drastically reducing the size of Hyperspectral SWIR system.
