CI Systems was founded in 1977 to commercialize advanced infrared (IR) remote sensing equipment technology. Shortly after the company’s foundation CI became the leader in infrared spectroradiometry for remote sensing of atmosphere, objects’ spectral signatures and ground truth measurements.

As a result of a spin-off from CI, Applied Spectral Imaging Ltd was founded in 1994. This company won the European Information Technology prize for its innovative hyperspectral visible camera for imaging chromosomes in 1997. Today, CI Systems is applying its core technology to develop a unique line of spectral and hyperspectral IR systems for R&D applications and characterization of hazardous gases released in the air.
