SWIR (Short-wave Infrared)

Short Wave IR (SWIR) is a subset of the infrared band in the electromagnetic spectrum, covering the wavelengths ranging from 1.4 to 3 microns. This wavelength is not visible to human eyes and as a result can often offer a better image than what is achievable with visible light imaging.

Benefits of SWIR include:

  • – No Illumination Needed
  • – See Through Fog & Haze
  • – Effective for Identification
  • – See Through Glass


SWIR is available within our Osiris and Jaegar housings, if you’d like to know more, get in touch with an expert below.
