Neptune SW is a very high-performance IDCA which enables you imaging from 0.9 to 2.5 μm.

This IDCA is well-adapted to low flux in this wavelength range. The line by line gain selection function makes it perfectly suitable for hyperspectral imaging.

This high-performance IDCA takes full advantage of Sofradir’s state of the art technologies.
