PRINCETON, N.J., April 12, 2010 — Sensors Unlimited Inc., part of Goodrich ISR Systems, has introduced a new military-hardened, uncooled, InGaAs short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) video camera for military applications.
Small and ultracompact, the high-sensitivity SU320HX video camera is designed for use in military imaging systems that are deployed and operate in harsh environments under rugged conditions.
Built on Goodrich’s KT camera platform, it also includes image enhancement functions for backward compatibility in existing applications.
The camera can image through atmospheric obscurants such as haze, fog, smoke and dust, and during daytime or nighttime, including “crossover” hours at dawn and dusk, making it useful for surveillance in manned and unmanned airborne and/or ground systems.
Also suitable for general surveillance applications and marine intelligence tasks, the solid-state camera is smaller and lighter and consumes much less power than cooled mid-wavelength and long-wavelength infrared imagers and germanium-based IR cameras, according to the company.
