SWIR Vision Systems Inc. announced the commercial launch, production, and sales of the AcurosTM high definition, extended short-wave infrared (eSWIR) cameras. This new class of SWIR band cameras, featuring the company’s CQDTM Quantum Dot sensor technology, will compete directly with incumbent SWIR and eSWIR technologies, delivering the highest resolution, at lower cost points, and global exportability to the Vision Industry.
The introduction of 1920 x 1080 HD extended SWIR capability increases the usable SWIR band by _40%, out to 2000nm, and brings full 2.1MP high definition imaging to several new commercial short wave IR applications.
“AcurosTM CQDTM Full HD cameras deliver more than 6X the pixel resolution compared to InGaAs VGA cameras, delivering higher field-of-view and superior clarity to users with the need to resolve the finest details”, said Dr. Ethan Klem, CTO of SWIR Vision Systems. “The intent of our quantum dot-based eSWIR products is to open up the practical, high definition and high-performance imaging in new applications including chemical detection, machine vision systems, multi-spectral imaging, plastic sorting, defense and surveillance, autonomous driving, and more.”
SWIR Vision Systems, a North Carolina based startup company, has pioneered the development and introduction of high definition, colloidal quantum dot infrared image sensor technology for infrared cameras, delivering breakthrough sensor capability. Imaging in the short wavelength IR has become critical for key applications within industrial, defense systems, mobile phones, and autonomous vehicle markets.
