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.

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.
