The Advantages of Longwave Infrared Strained Layer Superlattice Thermal Cameras

SLS detectors take LWIR cameras to a whole new level!

Screen Shot -Stop-motion image of inflating airbagOnline  –This new type of detector material brings FLIR’s thermal infrared camera performance in line with their read-out integrated circuit (ROIC) and camera electronic counterparts.

The integration of Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) detectors into commercially available thermal infrared cameras offers a new LWIR solution with significant improvements in speed, temperature range, uniformity, and stability that costs less than analogous detector materials.

In a new online article The Advantages of Longwave Infrared Strained Layer Superlattice Thermal Cameras”, FLIR’s tech staff point out: Continue reading

NASA: Snow science in support of our nation’s water supply

The SnowEx Campaign

SnowEx Field Campaign: 4K B-roll From The P-3 Orion AircraftOnline  —  Researchers have completed the first flights of the NASA-led field campaign that is targeting one of the biggest gaps in scientists’ understanding of Earth’s water resources: snow.

NASA uses the vantage point of space to study all aspects of Earth as an interconnected system. But there remain significant obstacles to measuring accurately how much water is stored across the planet’s snow-covered regions.

The amount of water in snow plays a major role in water availability for drinking water, agriculture and hydropower. Continue reading
