PRINCETON, NJ, JUNE 10, 2008 – According to Sensors Unlimited, the new KTX and KTSX NIR/SWIR cameras can see light wavelengths from 0.7 to 1.7 microns. Traditionally, night vision cameras can detect wavelengths up to roughly 1.0 microns.

This new NIR/SWIR imaging capability is ideal for UAV and UGV (unmanned aerial and ground vehicle) applications, as well as for rifle scopes, precision-guided munitions and hostile fire indicators.

The KT camera family features the new night vision and laser detection capability that images from the NIR (near infrared) to the SWIR (shortwave infrared) portion of the spectrum, including what night vision goggles can and cannot see.

Sensors UnlimitedThese expanded capabilities allow the end user to detect and track a wide range of military lasers. Because InGaAs (indium gallium arsenide) night vision technology detects light, unlike today’s small thermal night vision cameras that detect heat signature, our compact NIR/SWIR cameras provide exceptional clarity in both day and night conditions, from partial starlight to direct sun illumination.

The tiny imagers utilize the company’s proprietary indium gallium arsenide-night vision (InGaAs-NV) technology to detect and track a broad range of battlefield infrared lasers with heightened night and day time sensitivity.
