Sensors Unlimited to Develop IR Array
Sensors Unlimited Inc. of Princeton, N.J., has been awarded a $4.5 million contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s Microsystems Technology Office to develop a 1280 × 1024-pixel, dual-wavelength, visible and shortwave infrared focal plane array. The uncooled InGaAs array, combined with the company’s expertise in low-noise and dual-wavelength detector design, will meet the agency’s goal of identifying a human target at 100 m on moonless nights. The contract, to be awarded in three 12-month phases, is expected to total $4,576,176 if fully executed.
