Goodrich Corporation’s ISR Systems Princeton team (formerly
Sensors Unlimited) (Princeton, NJ) has introduced a
high-sensitivity, mil-hardened, indium gallium arsenide (In-GaAs) shortwave infrared (SWIR) uncooled video camera for
military imaging systems, covert surveillance and marine intelligence
applications. The new SU640HSX features a 640 x 512
pixel format with a 25 micron pitch, advanced dynamic range
enhancements, expanded configuration memory and a wide operating
temperature range from -40 degrees to 70 degrees Celsius.
The ultra-compact cameras are capable of imaging through atmospheric obscurants such as
fog, haze and smoke. With onboard automatic gain control (AGC), built-in non-uniformity corrections
(NUCs), and user-selectable contrast enhancement modes, the InGaAs SWIR sensors
provide real-time daylight to low-light imaging in the SWIR for 24/7 passive surveillance and laser
detection. Photonics West Booth #811
