Sensors Unlimited offers sensitive InGaAs shortwave infrared video camera

PRINCETON, N.J., 8 May 2007. Sensors Unlimited Inc. in Princeton, N.J., is introducing the SU640KTSX-1.7RT camera, which offers high sensitivity in the 0.9-to-1.7-micron spectrum with a 640-by-512-pixel format on a 25-micron pitch.

PRINCETON, N.J., 8 May 2007. Sensors Unlimited Inc. in Princeton, N.J., is introducing the SU640KTSX-1.7RT camera, which offers high sensitivity in the 0.9-to-1.7-micron spectrum with a 640-by-512-pixel format on a 25-micron pitch.

The camera is for passive surveillance and for use with imaging lasers, as the lightweight, shortwave infrared camera delivers clear, real-time video imaging in lighting conditions from starlight to direct sunlight.

Applications include covert surveillance with passive 24/7 operation, imaging of laser rangefinders and target designators, imaging spectroscopy, astronomy, and other tasks requiring low-light-level shortwave infrared imaging.

The indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) KTSX is available in a 4-cubic-inch, 3.15-ounce OEM module for integration into larger systems. The all-solid-state imager features room temperature operation with onboard automatic gain control, image enhancement, and built-in non-uniformity corrections.

The SU640KTSX is for integration into other systems such as unmanned ground or aerial vehicles and other handheld or robotic systems.

Sensors Unlimited is part of Goodrich Corp. For more information contact the company online at www.oss.goodrich.com/sui.
