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.
