These ground-based interceptors use kinetic-kill vehicles (KKVs) that home in on warheads as they fall through outer space, using LWIR
Title: Global IR Imaging Market (2012 - 2017) - Forecast, Trend & Analysis - Segmentation by Spectrum Range [SWIR, MWIR, LWIR
& FWIR cameras], Applications [Commercial, Military & Defense, Industrial, Medical Imaging, Automotive, Others] & Geography
The advanced vision processor provides multiple-image processing and noise-reduction functions, with extensions for edge analytics to achieve optimum LWIR
These can be deployed on tripod and vehicles for reconnaissance duties while the uncooled UCM (Un-Cooled Module) miniature LWIR
thermal camera will be preferred for handheld devices.
The prototype demonstration system built and tested under this effort will consist of two identical pods, each housing a VNIR MSI sensor, a broadband LWIR
sensor, a 2D LiDAR sensor, a commercial off the shelf laser, and associated control, storage, and processing electronics.
One major trend in this market is the shift toward LWIR
cameras are the most innovative thermal imaging devices available on the market that use uncooled microbolometers to produce high-quality thermal images both during day and night.
Accuracii is available with MWIR 640x512 cooled 15o detectors and three high quality zoom lens options or an innovative LWIR
640x480 uncooled 17o detector coupled with a 25-225mm continuous-zoom lens.

Increased usage of LWIR
uncooled cameras is one of the key trends emerging in the market.
High resolution - based on a 640 x 480, 17 micron pitch, uncooled LWIR
sensor, the module delivers simultaneous Camera Link[sup.
The market for IR detectors from Microbolometers is mainly dominated by LWIR
spectral range as majority of the end users applications fall in this range.
