System for providing stealthy vision

Research output: PatentPatent


A system (100) for providing stealthy vision, comprising a source element (10) configured to provide electromagnetic radiation at a predetermined wavelength in order to illuminate a target (30); and camera (20) configured to image the target (30) to be illuminated at the predetermined wavelength; wherein the source element (10) is configured to provide electromagnetic radiation comprising shortwave infrared light; and wherein the predetermined wavelength comprises a wavelength in a region of the near infrared spectrum wherein the absorption features of an atom or a molecule present in the medium through which the electromagnetic radiation propagates form a continuum, that is a wavelength region wherein two or more narrow absorption lines are close enough to each other that they effectively form a single absorption area with a width greater than that of a single absorption line so that the range of the electromagnetic radiation in the medium is limited for all wavelengths within the continuum; wherein the region corresponds to a wavelength range centered at about 1382,8 nm, 1388,1 nm or 1392.4 nm.
