Goodrich Corp.
4 Coliseum Centre, 2730 West Tyvola Rd.
Charlotte, NC, 28217
USA



Press release date: April 19, 2012

o New C-platform, ultra-low size, weight, and power, shortwave infrared camera unveiled at DSS 2012

CHARLOTTE, NC, - Goodrich Corporation (NYSE:GR) introduces the smallest shortwave infrared (SWIR) camera. The new GA640C-15A is smaller, lighter and uses less power than any other SWIR camera on the market today. It will be showcased at the SPIE Defense, Security, and Sensing (DSS) 2012 exhibition, booth 1610, at the Baltimore Convention Center, from April 23 - 27.

With a volume less than one cubic inch, weighing only 26g without its lens, and consuming only 1.5W, the camera is ideal for integration into handheld, helmet, or weapon mounted surveillance devices, unmanned aircraft, and any ground or maritime imaging system where size weight and power consumption must be minimal.

The camera features 640 x 512 pixel resolution with a 15-micron pitch. The Camera LinkŪ digital output offers plug-and play, 12-bit imagery for viewing, digital processing and/or transmission. The uncooled SWIR detector images in real-time video (30Hz), daylight to low light, through smoke, haze, and fog conditions. It operates without temperature stabilization using non-uniformity corrections (NUC) parameterized over temperatures. It also provides on-board automatic gain control (AGC), for hands-free operation.

Goodrich's SWIR C-platform model operates from 0.9 to 1.7 micron spectral range; the optional near infra-red (NIR) camera model extends the spectral response to include the range from 0.7 to 1.7 microns. The camera operates in a wide temperature range from -35 degrees C to +71 degrees C.

Goodrich's ISR Systems team, based in Princeton, NJ, has pioneered the design and production of NIR and SWIR cameras and systems using advanced indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) imaging technology for use across many applications.
