Understanding Mid-Wave Infrared (MWIR)

Most lenses in the mid-wave feature cooled technology, which offers very high sensitivity.  As a result, anything that has a heat signature can be detected.  This makes MWIR lenses perfect for critical military applications, where they will detect people or IEDs from a safe distance (even if concealed) or determine if vehicles engines are turned on.  Since people emit heat, MWIR is also very useful for search & rescue operations, or for police and firefighting work, to detect heat loss in home inspections, and in many manufacturing applications.
