Cal Sensors has developed custom lead selenide (PbSe) multichannel IR position detectors with sensitivity of 1.5 x 1010 Jones in the 1- to 5-µm wavelength region. With high sensitivity and fast response times, the detectors can quickly identify and track the location of infrared sources. The multichannel format enables them to zoom in on hot spots or other infrared emissions, making them suitable for a variety of applications, including weapons targeting, security and defense countermeasures, and hot spot detection for firefighting. The compact detectors can be arranged in a coplanar format or made to face each of the four directions with a slanted orientation to provide both directional and height input for complete 360° analysis across two dimensions.
