Why focus on Polarization?
Polarization is a fundamental property of light not readily utilized in commercial cameras. Polarization can add range, improve specificity and provide details not delivered by other imaging technologies. The polarization signature of man-made objects and certain natural substances are different than the surrounding background, thus providing additional contrast in polarization imagery when compared to standard thermal or visible imagery. For this reason, objects that blend in to the background when using standard thermal and visible cameras often stand out in polarization imagery.
Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc. has been an industry leader, designer and developer of imaging systems providing daylight detail in the dark as well as visibility in low contrast conditions for military and scientific entities.
