Paper Abstract

Lock-in imaging enables high contrast imaging in adverse conditions by exploiting a modulated light source and homodyne detection. We report results on a patent pending lock-in imaging system fabricated from commercial-off-theshelf parts utilizing standard cameras and a spatial light modulator. By leveraging the capabilities of standard parts we are able to present a low cost, high resolution, high sensitivity camera with applications in search and rescue, friend or foe identification (IFF), and covert surveillance. Different operating modes allow the same instrument to be utilized for dual band multispectral imaging or high dynamic range imaging, increasing the flexibility in different operational settings.
