Short-wave infrared lens

SWIR series is a range of short-wave infrared lens specifically designed to operate in the 0.9-1.7 µm wavelenght region. This serie has been specifically designed to match the new 15 µm format InGaAs FPA Focal Plane Arrays.

These infrared lens offer an industry standard C-mount threaded style interface or, alternatively, they can be equipped with a custom mount interface.

In the design of the infrared lens, great importance was attached to a good image quality and a large aperture (small F/#). These infrared lens, mounted on a SWIR camera, are the perfect choice for a variety of applications, including solar cell inspection, night vision imaging of outdoors scenes without additional illumination (security applications), detecting bruises on fruit, imaging through silicon, biomedical imaging and many other infrared applications.


High resolution

Designed for high resolution detectors up to 15 μm pixel pitch and 21 mm diameter.

Custom mount interface

Can be provided upon request.

Large field of view and low distortion

Superior optical performances.


Although standard visible infrared lens can be deployed with InGaAs cameras (SWIR wavelengths can pass through common glass), only SWIR infrared lens can fully exploit the performance of near-IR cameras, providing the sharpest image for your application.

How can we achieve this kind of performance? SWIR infrared lens are specifically designed to operate in the SWIR band (0.9-1.7 µm wavelength region) as opposed to common visible-light infrared lens.

Automotive Night Vision Enhanced by Near-Infrared Technology

Driving becomes more difficult after sunset. Not only is visibility generally reduced, but an even more serious challenge on unlighted roads are the headlamps of approaching vehicles, which can dazzle a driver’s eyes. Thermal driving night vision systems can help drivers navigate in the dark, but to be of real help, they must be able to see both in the light and in the dark. They also must produce natural-looking images of the road, which is usually populated with animate and inanimate objects.

Nighttime driving conditions are enhanced by an NIR laser-based vision system. The naked eye is blinded by the headlights of an oncoming vehicle and can’t see the pedestrian (A). A thermal camera allows the driver to distinguish both the pedestrian and other vehicle but not the lane markings (B). The laser-based system, however, provides a clear view of the pedestrian, the vehicle and the markings (top).

Thermal driving night vision systems were introduced into the automotive market in the 2000 model year. The Cadillac DeVille that year used a thermal camera that was sensitive to the long-wave infrared part of the electromagnetic spectrum (the 8- to 14-μm band) along with a display that projected a virtual image of the road scene using the windshield.

Although this system excelled at detecting warm objects, such as pedestrians and animals, the image contrast was generally poorer for cool, inanimate objects, such as lane markings, signs and reflective road markings. Also, because automobile, windshields do not transmit long-wave infrared radiation, the camera had to be mounted on the outside of the vehicle, exposing it to the weather and, potentially, to damage from front-end collisions and road debris.

Lexus introduced the industry’s second thermal driving night vision system in 2002. Featured on the LX 470 sport utility vehicle, it had — instead of a thermal camera — an active thermal driving night vision system that used near-infrared illuminators and a CCD camera. Each illuminator consisted of an incandescent lamp filtered primarily to pass wavelengths longer than ~800 nm and designed to produce an angular distribution of light similar to that of a high-beam headlamp.

To improve the performance of vehicle-based active thermal driving night vision systems, researchers at Daimler-Benz AG in Ulm, Germany, developed an externally mounted diode laser as the near-infrared light source. Because the laser emits at essentially a single wavelength, a narrow bandpass filter can be used in the camera, which allows most of the laser light through while removing a large fraction of the near-infrared light from the headlamps of oncoming cars. This approach eliminates the image flaring that occurs in filtered-incandescent systems and allows the driver to have a clear view of the region near and behind oncoming traffic.

Placing the vision system on the exterior of a car would seem to be a natural design choice. However, from an engineering standpoint, it creates a nightmare because it is difficult to design an exterior lamp that is immune to water intrusion, which would wreak havoc with a laser and its power supply.

For this reason, engineers from Ford Motor Co. of Dearborn and Lear Corp. of Southfield, both in Michigan, designed and constructed a prototype system in which all components are positioned within the vehicle’s interior. Among the other advantages of this architecture are that it simplifies thermal management of the laser and its power supply; that the illuminator and camera apertures can be kept clear by placing them in the zone cleaned by the windshield wipers; that the number of common system components increases; and that the illuminator is protected from damage in front-end collisions.

The illuminator’s laser, which emits at ~810 nm, and its beam-forming optics, power supply and temperature management system are located in an overhead module. A lightguide collects and collimates the laser emission, and a holographic diffuser generates a beam pattern with horizontal and vertical spread angles (full width at the 1/e points) of 14° and 5.3°, respectively. A shroud that is sealed against the windshield prevents the laser light from being emitted into the passenger compartment. The illuminator meets the requirements of a Class 1 laser under all conditions.

Thermal imaging camera

A thermal imaging camera (TIC) records the different infrared radiations of the body, which vary according to temperature. A TIC reproduces the temperature stored by the body or shows the heat flux of a wall, when there is a source of heat behind it.

We develop and manufactures its own thermal imaging cameras and supplies them worldwide.

A thermal imaging camera may be used in different situations.


  • When seeking victims in apartment fires and especially in large volumes like underground car parks, factories, warehouses or in forest fires, etc.
  • Search for fire source: the thermal camera is capable of very quickly detecting a source of heat or even a smoldering fire.
  • Residual fire or heat in an expansion joint following a fire in the cellar of an apartment building.
  • Hotspot after extinguishing a fire in a chimney or in an attic space.
  • Electric fire: short circuit or bad contact, resulting in local overheating.
  • During freight vehicle or tanker transfers, the level of chemical products in certain tanks can be observed with a thermal camera.
  • During action to deal with a traffic accident at night in the countryside, to detect a body that may have been thrown off the road.
  • For rescue under rubble, to locate victims in locations that are only accessible through a small hole.
  • For training, the instructor is better able to show the correct method to the trainee during an operation.


  • For night-time operations
  • ?To search for stowaway passengers
  • To detect illegal drug cultivation (for instance cannabis)

HRIPSs (Household Refuse Incineration Plants)

  • Detection of the outbreak of fire


  • Rescue at sea: searching for persons who have fallen overboard
