The SEERS Project

The major goal of SEERS is to develop a snapshot spectral imager in the IR range based on low cost uncooled FPAs, with embedded processing capabilities. The targeted range includes near infrared (NIR), short wavelength infrared (SWIR), mid wavelength infrared (MWIR), and long wavelength infrared (LWIR).

A multisensor approach in a beamsplitting arrangement is to be adopted, combined with multi-aperture (MA) imaging, and embedded processing for cognitive image fusion and image-based measurement. Video rate performance, multispectral video analytics software (VAS) for the IR, and demonstration in a real video management software (VMS) framework in real operational conditions are important goals in SEERS.
