Remote sensing applications range from oceanography to astronomy. Basic visible light cameras serve a wide variety of applications in remote sensing. However, many other applications require other methods for discriminating the content of a scene. Making use of the differences in polarization of reflected light, sensors can determine manmade from natural materials and a host of additional information.
By capturing key polarization parameters including the linear Stokes parameters, 4D PolarCam cameras highlight information in remote sensing data for applications ranging from oceanography to astronomy.
