Infrared Imaging for Every Wavelength
Short Wave Infrared
For specialty applications when imaging in the “reflective” band is advantageous or essential, SWIR imaging has significant benefits. The versatility and utility of this category of thermal imaging has a bright future as it is incorporated into more systems across broader industries.SWIR Products
Mid Wave Infrared
When sensitivity, quality and clarity are essential, mid-wave (MWIR) infrared technology is the way to go. Sierra-Olympia Technologies specializes in cooled MWIR cores for a range of applications, from superior long- range security and surveillance to optical gas imaging to compact systems designed for aerial integration.MWIR Products
