In these cameras, software realizing the fast Fourier transforms and the cooled QWIP detectors are utilized, which work as spectroradiometers.
Caption: With the acquisition of facilities and technology developments in InSb from Sagem, QWIP and In GaAs from Thales though an agreement signed last December, Sofradir reinforced its leading market position not only in Europe but also at global level.
In particular, TIRS will carry three 640 x 512 QWIP arrays that are made of Gallium Arsenide semiconductor chips layered with more than 100 layers of detector material.
The QWIP technology being pursued by QWIP Systems was originally developed at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) with funding from US Missile Defense Agency, NASA and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

CDNX - RBP) applauds the US Food and Drug Administration's approval of a new diagnostic sensing tool incorporating the QWIP (Quantum Well Infrared Photodetector) technology that will help with early detection of breast cancer without using radiation.
The study first describes limitations in other existing modalities such as near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and laser Doppler flowmetry (LDF), two commonly used techniques for non-invasive study of muscle metabolism and blood perfusion, and how QWIP technology can be implemented to overcome some of their limitations such as spatial variability, which makes the data interpretation and comparison difficult.
