DARPA Selects Sensors Unlimited
Nov 2009
Sensors Unlimited Inc., part of Goodrich ISR Systems, has been chosen by DARPA to further develop its short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) imaging technology for enhanced night-vision capability. Under DARPA’s Photon Counting Arrays (PCAR) program, Goodrich will develop materials and circuitry to allow its small, lightweight cameras to provide images under darker conditions than previously possible. Work will be performed at Goodrich’s ISR Systems business in Princeton, N.J. The selection represents the third phase of the PCAR program; Sensors Unlimited Inc. – Goodrich completed the first two phases of PCAR from 2005 through mid-2009. The third phase of the development program will advance the technology’s ability to provide crisp images under no-moon conditions, providing greater human identification capabilities as well as increased situational awareness of terrain changes on the battlefield, said the company.

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...
