Applications

SAFETY & SECURITY

Photon etc’s infrared camera is an ideal tool for the rapid detection of explosive liquid precursors.

ENVIRONMENT & AGRICULTURE

Hyperspectral imagery can be efficiently used to identify any type of molecules through the analysis of its characteristic spectrum. Analysis of soils and chemical compositions – atmospheric pollution research – and more.

VIDEO

Photon etc’s Global Imaging Technology

The Photon etc video shows the conceptual difference between hyperspectral global imaging and raster scan (line-scan, push-broom). With global imaging, the gain in acquiring 3D data, 2D spatial and 1D spectral, is important since the only a few monochromatic images are required to cover the complete  spectral range where one  needs to take the full spectrum for each point or  line in the image with other technologies.
