Firefly-IR Scanner from M Squared Lasers goes live at LWoP

A new portable, tripod-mounted Firefly-IR with integrated real-time infrared imaging scanner — the Firefly-IR-SC — will be launched by M Squared Lasers at Laser World of Photonics next week.

Firefly IR ScannerThe system is designed to bring a new and unique blend of performance capabilities to a variety of remote sensing and remote imaging applications such as:

  • Improvised Explosive Device (IED) detection
  • Atmospheric pollutant monitoring
  • Hazardous/fugitive gas emission tracking [Video]

The system is based on M Squared Lasers’ Firefly-IR widely tunable, high repetition rate pulsed MWIR/NIR laser source. With class-leading peak and average power and wavelength coverage, it enables users to probe a wider range of molecules with a single instrument, and to image in real time and at improved standoff detection distances and/or to achieve higher signal to noise.

The unit is supplied ready to use straight out of the box. M Squared is also keen to work with Elliot Scientific customers in the UK and Nordic countries to help tailor and optimise the Firefly-IR-SC’s highly flexible system modules (laser, scanner and software) for their particular remote sensing application. Extending the system to LWIR and narrower linewidths, for example, is already under development.
