Mil-Hardened 640x512 InGaAs SWIR Video Camera
Sep 2010
Sensors Unlimited - UTC Aerospace SystemsRequest Info
PRINCETON, N.J., Sept. 3, 2010 — Goodrich Corp.’s ISR Systems Princeton team (formerly Sensors Unlimited Inc.) has launched a high-sensitivity, mil-hardened, InGaAs short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) uncooled video camera for military imaging systems, covert surveillance and marine intelligence applications.

The SU640HSX features a 640 × 512-pixel format with a 25-µm pitch, dynamic range enhancements, expanded configuration memory and an operating temperature range from -40 to 70 °C. The ultracompact camera can image through atmospheric obscurants such as fog, haze and smoke. With onboard automatic gain control, built-in nonuniformity corrections (NUCs) and user-selectable contrast enhancement modes, the InGaAs sensor provides real-time daylight to low-light imaging in the SWIR region for 24/7 passive surveillance and laser detection.

The camera features high sensitivity in the SWIR region (0.9 to 1.7 µm) and in the optional NIR/SWIR extended spectral range (0.7 to 1.7 µm). It has been ruggedized for harsh environments and is subjected to environmental stress screening prior to shipping. Consuming <2.7 W at 20 °C, the solid-state imager is MIL-STD-810G-certified for mechanical shock, vibration, humidity, altitude, temperature, explosive atmosphere and transportability.

The compact enclosed module measures <9.5 in.³ and is certified for conducted and radiated emissions per FCC CE and MIL-461F regulations. The <3.8-in.³ OEM module is suitable for integrating into manned or unmanned airborne systems, handheld or robotic ground systems, and for driver vision enhancement applications.

automatic gain control
A method of producing an essentially constant output signal from an electronic circuit despite variations in the strength of the input signal.
1. A term used to describe the clouded appearance of an incompletely polished surface that scatters light. 2. The accumulation of moisture on an optical surface. 3. The extra spectral blackening of a photographic emulsion.
An aggravated form of fog in a polished surface caused by the scattering of light. The defects causing haze are larger than those causing fog, but singly are not large enough to be seen by the unaided eye.
