CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 16, 2014 — A lightweight, field-ready shortwave infrared (SWIR) module with a covert laser illuminator announced by UTC Aerospace Systems is able to lock onto the front of a commercially available, off-the-shelf camera.

The system enables imagery in both daylight and darkness with a Canon EOS 5D camera, and immediately provides operators with SWIR imaging capabilities on the battlefield. The module can image through glass, haze, smoke and dust to provide target accuracy and enhanced situational awareness with distinct advantages over goggle systems.

The 1550-nm laser illuminator mounts directly onto the Canon 5D hot shoe to deliver covert light. The device has an uncooled SU640HSX SWIR camera core with 540 x 512 pixel resolution, a 35-μm pitch and an integrated 800 x 600 SVGA display with relay optics.

A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
The light-conducting portion of an optical fiber, defined by the region of high refractive index.
Denoting the use of binary notation; i.e., the representation of data by bits (1 or 0).
1. In raster scan television, one of the two scans that are interlaced to make up a frame. 2. See field of view.
A noncrystalline, inorganic mixture of various metallic oxides fused by heating with glassifiers such as silica, or boric or phosphoric oxides. Common window or bottle glass is a mixture of soda, lime and sand, melted and cast, rolled or blown to shape. Most glasses are transparent in the visible spectrum and up to about 2.5 µm in the infrared, but some are opaque such as natural obsidian; these are, nevertheless, useful as mirror blanks. Traces of some elements such as cobalt, copper and...
An aggravated form of fog in a polished surface caused by the scattering of light. The defects causing haze are larger than those causing fog, but singly are not large enough to be seen by the unaided eye.
1. The anode or anticathode of an x-ray tube that emits x-rays when bombarded by electrons. 2. The screen in a television imaging tube that is scanned by an electron beam to determine the charge-density stored on it.
