Goodrich Shortwave IR Technology Selected for Army Camera

Mar 2007
Defense contractor Northrop Grumman's Laser Systems business unit of Apopka, Fla., announced it has selected Goodrich Corp. to manufacture a boresight monitoring camera subsystem to be used in a multifunction laser (MFL) for Future Combat Systems -- the US Army's premier modernization program. The program is comprised of a line of manned and unmanned air and ground systems linked via a network. The boresight cameras will be used to track and align lasers at multiple wavelengths on the MFL. Goodrich's SUI team (formerly Sensors Unlimited Inc.), based in Princeton, N.J., will modify and combine the functions of two of its 320 x 256 focal plane array shortwave infrared (SWIR) cameras to meet Army requirements. The new cameras will be smaller, use less power and offer more capabilities than current SWIR cameras, Goodrich said.


GLOSSARY
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
