PRINCETON, N.J., 2 March 2010. Sensors Unlimited Inc. in Princeton, N.J., is introducing a military-hardened uncooled, indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) shortwave infrared (SWIR) video camera for military applications.
The small high-sensitivity SU320HX rugged video surveillance camera is for military imaging systems deployed in harsh environments. Shortwave infrared imaging systems, based on InGaAs technology, have the capability to image through atmospheric obscurants, such as haze, fog, smoke, and dust.
This combines with the ability to image during daytime or nighttime, including "crossover" hours at dawn and dusk, making InGaAs-SWIR video cameras especially useful for surveillance in manned and unmanned airborne and/or ground systems. The SWIR camera also is for surveillance applications and maritime intelligence tasks.
Built on Goodrich's KT camera, the SU320HX also includes the announced image enhancement functions for backward compatibility in existing applications.
