Goodrich to Continue Night Vision Technology Development for DARPA

Photonics.com
Aug 2007
DARPA's Microsystems Technology Office has selected defense and aerospace systems supplier Goodrich Corp. of Charlotte, N.C., for the continued development of indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) visible and shortwave infrared (SWIR) focal plane arrays for use in passive night-vision imaging systems. "Our team has successfully completed the first phase of this contract and we now look forward to taking the technology to the next level," said Edward Hart, vice president and general manager of Goodrich's SUI team. "The focus of this next phase of development will be to raise the resolution of the camera we developed in the first phase and make the imager more sensitive, allowing for better night-vision capabilities." The SUI team, based in Princeton, N.J., first developed SWIR cameras and systems using advanced InGaAs imaging technology for industrial, commercial, military, agricultural and scientific markets.


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...
