HRes SWIR Multispectral Camera

Multiespectral SWIR compact cameras with wavelength coverage 1100 - 1600 nm and 9 spectral bands

SIL-Cicada SWIR multispectral cameras are specially designed to allow high integration of multispectral systems.
These lightweight and very small footprint cameras split the image into 9 spectral bands: in a single capture (snapshot) the 9 images are obtained simultaneously and aligned.
Made by hybridization of a custom Bayer-like matrix on a commercial 1296 x 1032 px InGaAs sensor, they allow extracting the spectrum on each point of an image.

The technology Color Shades(R) is a unique manufacturing technique to produce multispectral pixelated filters. The SIL-Cicada multispectral cameras are type snapshot.

In our Polyespectral Imaging Application you can learn more on this technology, the features and advantages.

These cameras meet the requirements in most of the SWIR spectral imaging applications. They are therefore a great alternative to the expensive systems based on hyperspectral cameras. Reduce the cost in your application but not with a low-cost product. Think multispectral, think Silios.

Filter transmission:

This C++ & Python SDK, common to all SIL- cameras allows:

1) displaying the raw images, false color images, gray scale images or overlaid images with different indexation methods (such as "spectrum recognition")
2) normalizing the spectral channels
3) applying multispectral image corrections such as the crosstalk correction
4) extracting the hypercubes.

It runs with real time acquisition, but can also run with recorded single image or series of images (“replay mode”).
It is supplied free of charge with the camera.
