Description

The Garm LW Pol has a built-in 2x2 pixel array structure. With each pixel sensitive to a distinct polarization angle (0°, 45°, 90°, and -45°), it can sense the smallest polarimetric information within any scene without optical parallax or frame rate constraints. This unique detector allows real-time capture of polarimetric video and images with high polarimetric contrast and freedom from filter induced transmission losses.

Applications

Efficient oil spill detection

Camouflage denial

Improvised Explosive Device (IED) detection

Human infrared face recognition

Industrial applications (thermography, NDT…)
