SUI (Sensors Unlimited Inc.), part of Goodrich Corp., offers a high-sensitivity shortwave infrared (SWIR) SU320KTX-1.7 RT camera for easy system integration.
The ultracompact (less than 3.8 in.) and light (less than 90 g) camera, originally developed for the US Army's soldier mobility and rifle targeting system, is now available for industrial and commercial OEM use. Designed for low-light conditions and day/night operation, the indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) KTX camera offers wide dynamic range imaging in partial starlight to direct sun illumination. It delivers clear, real-time video images ideal for passive surveillance and for use with lasers.
The KTX camera features the highest sensitivity available in the 900 to 1700 nm wavelength range with a 320 x 240 pixel format on a 40-micron pitch focal plane array. The low-power (less than 1.6 W), all solid-state SWIR imager operates at room temperature and features onboard nonuniformity corrections, auto gain and enhanced display algorithms. Applications include all low-light-level imaging tasks, such as covert surveillance, imaging spectroscopy, astronomy, emission microscopy and machine vision.
The highly sensitive camera is ideal for easy integration into unmanned aerial and ground vehicles, robotic, handheld and portable systems. Available in either the compact OEM module at <3.8 in. or enclosed in a robust housing at <10.1 in., both camera packages include a C-mount lens adapter and lens.
