  • Raptor SWIR Cameras Improve Productivity For The Remote Sensing Of Vegetation

    Forage Mass Monitoring (FFM) analysis has been traditionally done using biomass sampling to calculate biomass yield per hectare. Raptor Photonics has recently published an Application Note showing how reflectance spectroscopy methods using drone based remote sensing systems are now being used to derive well-established vegetation indices (VIs) more efficiently than biomass sampling. Researchers from the […]

  • Raptor’s X-Ray Sensor Replacement Promise

    Working with high-energy lasers it is almost inevitable that sensors occasionally get damaged. We appreciate the time and financial impact of downtime associated with a broken camera. At Raptor we have experienced this pain ourselves. As a result, we offer a sensor damage replacement scheme, where we will replace any laser damaged sensors in our […]

  • Raptor launches the Ninox 640 SU, the best “scientific” SWIR camera in the World!

    Raptor Photonics has launched the Ninox 640 SU, a vacuum cooled InGaAs based camera with 640×512 sensor with a 15µm x 15µm pixel pitch for the highest spatial resolution. The Ninox 640SU is vacuum cooled to -80°C for ultra-long exposures of up to 5 minutes. Its ultra-low dark current and read-noise result in the best […]
