Goodrich's ISR Systems Princeton team (formerly Sensors Unlimited) has introduced the high sensitivity, shortwave infrared (SWIR) uncooled video camera for military imaging systems, covert surveillance and marine intelligence applications.
The SU640HSX features a 640 x 512 pixel format with a 25µm pitch, advanced dynamic range enhancements, expanded configuration memory and a wide operating temperature range from -40°C to 70°C.
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 constant passive surveillance and laser detection.
The camera has been ruggedised for harsh environments and is subjected to environmental stress screening prior to shipping. Featuring low power consumption (<2.7W at 20°C), 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 is certified for conducted and radiated emissions per FCC CE and MIL-461F regulations. The small OEM module is ideal for integrating into manned or unmanned airborne systems, handheld or robotic ground systems, and for driver vision enhancement (DVE) applications.
