ILS consists of a Matching Band Pass Filter Array at the terminus of a
fiber-optic bundle. The Matching Band Pass Filter Array holds
changeable up-looking filters that precisely match the changeable
narrow band filters fitted into each of the Mini-MCA's other camera
channels. Each fiber in the ILS fiber-optic bundle conveys
the light from one filter in the ILS array to the dedicated ILS image
sensor in the Mini-MCA. The result is an array of pools of
illumination on the ILS image sensor that represent incident light
with the incident light sensor, a Mini-MCA6 system records five
channels of up-welling image information, each filtered to the
specified spectral band and one channel that records the down-welling
radiation in the same five bands, all recorded simultaneously.
Beginning with version 18.104.22.168, Tetracam's PixelWrench2 image
processing software (included with all Tetracam cameras) fully supports
the ILS features.
the Mini-MCA Incident Light Sensor is only available for Mini-MCA6
systems. The Incident Light Sensor may be ordered with new
Mini-MCA6 systems or existing system owners may contact Tetracam,
obtain an RMA, ship their Mini-MCA6 systems to our Chatsworth facility
and have an ILS added to their system. Contact our sales office
