FIGURE 1. Utah’s Salt Lake Valley occasionally experiences an atmospheric phenomenon that traps air pollution for days or weeks at a time. During these atmospheric inversion events, ground-level visibility is severely reduced. These images taken from a video show visible imagery (a) and shortwave-infrared (SWIR) imagery (b) during a period of very low ground-level visibility on December 7, 2017 at approximately 3:30 pm MST (to see the video, visit https://youtu.be/3cBkfQb8vxQ). The SWIR imagery was captured at 60 fps with the Sensors Unlimited GA1280JSX mini-SWIR area camera and a 200 mm SWIR-optimized f/1.6 lens. The visible imagery was captured with a Nikon D5100 DSLR camera in video mode and a 55–200 mm f/4.5-5.6 lens. Both sets of imagery are cropped, but are otherwise unchanged.

Photonics Products: Imaging for Surveillance and Security: SWIR cameras cut through haze for surveillance and security

Covert operations commonly use thermal imaging and/or night vision, but the shortwave infrared (SWIR) band has its own advantages, such as seeing through atmospheric haze.
