FluxData introduces a 3-CCD polarization camera in a new compact form factor.
The FD-1665P is a new camera system capable of collecting video at three linear polarization orientations simultaneously. Polarimetric imaging is an active research area in medical, machine vision and defense applications. Because the polarimetric preserving and/or inducing properties of materials are often complementary to their spectral signatures, polarization provides additional information to analysts and researchers. Polarization imaging has been used to identify stress and defects in aircraft assemblies; “see” into the water column in littoral and marine applications; separate specular from diffuse reflectance for material analysis and identification; and automatically detect man made objects in natural surroundings.
