  • qBeam's high resolution, ultra-sensitive, configurable SWIR multi-spectral camera opens up new opportunities in the scientific, medical, security and industrial inspection fields.

    • Simultaneous image capture on three sensors
    • Registered images
    • Field swappable band pass filters
    • Two-position band pass filter on each channel
    • Embedded iCore7 PC
    • Image processing software
    • Three sensor camera with full sensor resolution
    • Configurable channel bands with custom dichroic prism
    • Multiple SWIR lens options including F/1.4
  • The Range Simulator is a multipurpose optical test-bed designed to allow simultaneous operation of both sides of a Free-Space Optical Link (FSO) in the lab for testing and characterization.

    • Optical equipment verification after receipt and prior to shipment.
    • Optical System training without having to be in the field.
    • Works with telescopes with central obscurations, multiple transmit apertures, multiple receive apertures.
    • Easy self-alignment of the instrument utilizes an included shearing interferometer for precise beam collimation.
    • 14” F/4.5 parabolic mirror (customizable)
    • Wavefront better than lambda/4 peak-valley at 633nm
    • Wavelength band 1000 – 2000 nm (Transmission > 90%)
    • Protected Aluminum coating (customizable)
    • Optical bench can be operated horizontally or vertically (to reduce the footprint in the lab)
  • The Laser Light Modulator is a device that detects the presence of spectrally very narrow light and imparts a slow amplitude modulation on its intensity. Through the use of polarizers and a birefringent crystal, light with very narrow spectral content is modulated while broader spectral light (including sunlight) is not modulated.

    • Works over a broad spectral band, so no narrow bandpass filter is needed
    • Easily integrates onto commercial visible or SWIR lenses
    • Unlimited Rows Per Section
    • CLM-35C-NIR includes a 700 – 1100 nm modulator with a 35mm F/1.4 lens
    • Indirect or scattered light can be detected
    • Modulation frequency is adjustable from 1 Hz to 30 Hz
    • CLM-35C-SWIR includes a 900 – 1700 nm modulator with a SWIR 35mm F/1.4 lens
    • Narrow spectral light anywhere on the camera image can be detected (individual camera pixels are modulated)
    • Battery operated
    • Automatic wavelength estimation optional
    • Software for automatic detection can be developed
    • Can be incorporated into other viewing aides such as a monocular
  • Embed/Comm is a Windows® program for system level modeling and simulation of end-to-end communication systems at the physical layer. It provides fast and accurate solutions for analog, digital and mixed-mode communication system designs. Embed/Comm includes an extensive library of modulators, FEC blocks, channel models, filters, PLLs, and distortion-true RF blocks. Visualization features include spectrum plots, eye diagrams, phase scatter plots, BER curves, and more...

    • Hierarchical Design
    • Embedded Blocks
    • Faster Design Cycles
    • Signal Visualization
    • Distortion True RF Blocks
    • Complex Envelope
    • User Blocks
