Even on a pitch dark night – in ambient temperatures even sub freezing or tropical conditions; Specim’s OWL is able to perform chemical imaging!
Thermal hyperspectral imaging provides information that cannot be achieved by conventional spectral imagers. Most materials have characteristic spectral signatures in the MWIR (3 – 5 µm) and/or LWIR (8 – 12 µm) spectral range. A broader range of materials can be detected, mapped and sorted in these spectral ranges, leading to significantly higher specificity over the VNIR and SWIR imaging systems.
Specim’s high-sensitivity Spectral Camera OWL and industrial LWIR-HS imagers employ innovative technology exploiting the benefits of reflective and refractive optics to achieve the highest performance in a compact device.
For the most demanding ground-based remote sensing and security applications, Specim has integrated a state-of-the-art temperature stabilised LWIR imaging spectrograph with the highest sensitivity cooled MCT detector.
The OWL spectral camera covers the spectral range 8 to 12 µm with high spectral selectivity of 84 bands (sampling of 48 nm) and extensive speeds of up to 100 images per second.
