Original Press Release

Goodrich Announces High Sensitivity 640x512 Resolution InGaAs SWIR Mil-Hardened Video Camera

Press release date: August 20, 2010

  • Featuring the highest sensitivity available in SWIR (0.9 µm to 1.7 µm) cameras and in the optional NIR/SWIR extended spectral range (0.7 µm to 1.7 µm).

    PRINCETON, NJ--Goodrich Corporation's ISR Systems Princeton team (formerly Sensors Unlimited, Inc.) introduces the highest sensitivity, mil-hardened, indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) 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 on-board 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.

    The camera has been ruggedized for harsh environments and is subjected to environmental stress screening prior to shipping. Featuring low power consumption (<2.7 w="" at="" 20="" degrees="" celsius),="" the="" solid-state,="" mil-hardened="" imager="" is="" mil-std-810g="" certified="" for="" mechanical="" shock,="" vibration,="" humidity,="" altitude,="" temperature,="" explosive="" atmosphere="" and="" transportability.="" the="" compact,="" enclosed="" module="">< 9.5="" in.³)="" is="" certified="" for="" conducted="" and="" radiated="" emissions="" per="" fcc="" ce="" and="" mil-461f="" regulations.="" the="" small="">< 3.8="" in.³)="" oem="" module="" is="" ideal="" for="" integrating="" into="" manned="" or="" unmanned="" airborne="" systems,="" handheld="" or="" robotic="" ground="" systems,="" and="" for="" driver="" vision="" enhancement="" (dve)="">

    Goodrich's high sensitivity InGaAs SWIR SU640HSX mil-hardened camera is smaller, lighter weight, and consumes less power than cooled mid-wave or long-wave infrared imagers and competing germanium-based cameras. For a SWIR camera demonstration, please stop by Goodrich's booth # 2215 at AUVSI's Unmanned Systems North America from August 24-27, 2010 at the Colorado Convention Center, Denver, Colo.
