The most commonly-occurring issue in thermal imagery is that thermal imagery alone is not always enough to distinguish oil from water, a truck from a tree, or to evaluate faces for recognition databases. Our Sensors are unique in that they detect an important attribute of light that is often overlooked: polarization. In the scenarios where thermal alone isn’t enough, polarization often is the answer. We have also enhanced our algorithm development for applications not using polarization including acquisition and tracking and hypersonic aero-optics.
