Specialised Imaging (Hertfordshire, UK) has recently supplied their
renowned SIM-D Ultra Fast Framing Camera in a new multispectral imaging
configuration. The versatile SIM-D has the capability of fitting up to
16 individual filters with wavelength from 400nm to 850nm within the
optical system. This facility, coupled with the ability to take images
at exposures down to 3ns with zero interframe time, enables the
accurate study of wavelength dispersion when materials are stressed, as
well as temperature measurement and colorimetry applications. The
optical design of the SIM-D provides the choice of up to 16 separate
optical channels without compromising performance or image quality.
Effects such as parallax and shading are eliminated and the high
spatial resolution (> 36 lp/mm) is the same from frame to frame and in
This week's Question: Amazon recently filed a patent for parachute-aided delivery of packages. The proposed idea imagines drones releasing parcels from the sky, deploying parachutes to slow their descent and ensure the valuables inside remain...
