I2.3 - IR Dual-Band Camera Demonstrator and Dual-Band Image Fusion Techniques

Uwe Adomeit
During the last decades, thermal imagers have evolvolved from "simple" scanning systems to state-of-the-art focal plane arrays (FPA). Nowadays, different trends of development can be seen, for example decrease in pixel size, new materials (InAs/GaSb superlattices) and especially multispectral imagers. A multispectral imager is able to acquire information in different channels of the electromagnetic spectrum at the same time, while the standard broadband systems only work in one channel of the electromagnetic spectrum. One type...
