The OWL SW1.7 from Raptor Photonics is a world leading camera with InGaAs technology for near (NIR) and short wave infrared imaging (SWIR). 

SWIR radiation between 900nm and 1700nm can only be detected by dedicated high value sensors, such as InGaAs or MCT. It has to be pointed out that, although light in the shortwave infrared region is not visible to the eye, this light interacts with objects in a similar manner as visible wavelengths. Therefore, images from an InGaAs camera are comparable to visible images in resolution and detail. SWIR cameras are widely used for inspection of electronics components, solar cells, machine vision, etc.


The OWL SW1.7 infrared camera comprises the latest SWIR sensor technology providing unprecedented performance. Featuring a state-of-the-art high sensitivity InGaAs FPA sensor, developed by Alcatel-Thales III-V lab, this infrared camera offers pixels resolution of 320 x 256, with pixel size of 30µm x 30µm. OWL SW1.7 presents high sensitivity response in the range 0.9 to 1.7µm, allowing exposure time from 500ns to 500ms, to give optimum image quality in all conditions.

Raptor’s OWL SWIR infrared camera is ideally suited for cutting edge applications such as
- Semiconductor inspection
- Solar cells
- Machine vision
- Designation illumination, active and passive imaging
- Thermal imaging of hot objects (150°– 800° C)
- Range finding and laser spot detection
- Long range identification & perimeter surveillance
- Missile warning or shot detection and camouflage detection
- Imaging through fog
- Vision enhancement (automotive or airborn)
- Astronomy

In addition, unlike US-made SWIR cameras this one has much easier export procedure for Australia as it is designed and manufactured in the UK.
