Goodrich Corp.’s ISR Systems’ Princeton team (formerly Sensors Unlimited Inc.) has introduced the smallest size, weight and power (SWaP) short-wavelength IR (SWIR) camera for unmanned aerial vehicles. The 640 x 512-pixel (25-μm pitch) camera weighs 120 g with its 23-mm f/1.15 lens, providing a 40° field of view. The <4.9-cu-in. total volume allows it to easily fit onboard most unmanned aerial or ground vehicle systems. Currently, the camera is installed in the nose cone of a Raven hand-launched unmanned aerial system. The SWIR camera, sensitive from 0.7 to 1.7 μm, is installed with a 320 x 240-resolution long-wavelength IR microbolometer. The camera, combined with the microbolometer on the same platform, allows 24-h coverage from a single unmanned aerial system. This provides war fighters with new capabilities and new concept of operation while meeting the low-SWaP requirements of the modern battlefield.

A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
Contraction of "picture element." A small element of a scene, often the smallest resolvable area, in which an average brightness value is determined and used to represent that portion of the scene. Pixels are arranged in a rectangular array to form a complete image.
