  • InGaAs SWIR Cameras

May 2010
Sensors Unlimited - UTC Aerospace SystemsRequest Info
Sensors Unlimited Inc., part of Goodrich ISR Systems, has introduced two cameras with enhancements that expand the dynamic range of short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) imagery. The InGaAs SWIR SU320KTX has a 320 x 240-pixel format with a 40-μm pixel pitch, and the SU640KTSX has a 640 x 512-pixel format with a 25-μm pixel pitch. Both automatically compensate for variations in light levels that may differ by up to five orders of magnitude. This increase in dynamic range makes them suitable for imaging and surveillance in military, medical and commercial applications. They also detect reflected light at wavelengths that the human eye cannot see, providing real-time daylight-to-low-light imaging and making them suitable for use in laser detection, emission microscopy, imaging spectroscopy, astronomy, and imaging through fog, dust and smoke. They operate in the 0.9- to 1.7-μm range.

The scientific observation of celestial radiation that has reached the vicinity of Earth, and the interpretation of these observations to determine the characteristics of the extraterrestrial bodies and phenomena that have emitted the radiation.
The organ of vision or light sensitivity.  
In astronomy, the relative brightness of a celestial body. Originally a scale from 1 to 6, where 1 represented the brightest and 6 the faintest visible night sky objects. This scale has been expanded to include negative integers, integers greater than 6 and decimal values. A decrease of 1 in magnitude indicates an increase in brightness by a factor of 2.512 times. In mathematics, the magnitude of an object is often used to describe the size or length of that object. In optics, the magnitude is...
In positioning, rotation about an axis normal to the line of sight. Also known as attitude.
Contraction of "picture element." A small element of a scene, often the smallest resolvable area, in which an average brightness value is determined and used to represent that portion of the scene. Pixels are arranged in a rectangular array to form a complete image.
