AisaOWL Airborne Thermal Hyperspectral System

Thermographic and Forward Looking Infrared, FLIR cameras have been used widely for defence and law enforcement solutions. Thermal imaging is the technology that enables the detection of warm objects against a cold background even in completely dark conditions. Thermal Infrared systems can see through smoke, fog, haze, and other atmospheric obscurants better than a visible light camera can.
The SPECIM AisaOWL operates similarly to a traditional thermographic camera, with the fundamental difference that each pixel additionally contains a full LWIR spectrum, unique to the molecular
structure of the target.

The measured infrared spectra can then be used for material identification of the objects depicted. Consequently, a single instrument can deliver reliable chemical and thermographic
object recognition without the need for a light source such as the Sun or the Moon, which is a major advantage in target recognition, surveillance, and other defence applications.
The SPECIM AisaOWL provides invaluable information in airborne chemical imaging, including geological exploration, pollution source identification, and defence applications.

The fact that US
principal special forces the Navy SEALs have reportedly used hyperspectral imagers in such high stage operations as Neptune Spear, has proved the strategic importance of the technology, and raised worldwide interest towards the capabilities of thermal hyperspectral imaging in defence and law
enforcement. Read More
