Goodrich Awarded UAVB Sensor Contract
Dec 2006
Goodrich Corp. has been awarded a contract from the US Air Force Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Battlelab (UAVB) at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada to develop and fabricate a shortwave infrared (SWIR) sensor for the Spectre-Finder initiative, which will demonstrate the potential of a small, air-launched and recoverable unmanned aircraft system to provide off-board sensing in future Air Force Special Operations Command concepts. Under the terms of the contract, Goodrich company Sensors Unlimited Inc. (SUI), based in Princeton, N.J., will develop an SWIR camera payload assembly. The technology involved includes a 640 x 512 indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) camera, a custom dual field-of-view lens, and a laser pointer for use in day or night operation, enabling it to perform in any environment. SUI is a maker of SWIR detectors, arrays, cameras and systems using advanced InGaAs imaging technology for industrial, commercial, military, agricultural and scientific markets.

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...
