An Introduction to SWIR

Imaging systems using the short-wave infrared (SWIR) wavelength bands offer unique remote sensing capabilities, such as material detection and smoke penetration overcoming challenges in measurement, inspection, and process-monitoring applications often impossible with other technologies. This extraordinary capacity springs from the convergence of the phenomenology's unique absorption properties, atmospheric transmission windows that allow the Earth to be imaged from space, and particle scattering physics that enable smoke penetration.
