Sensors Unlimited - UTC Aerospace Systems introduces its compact next generation J-Series SWIR digital video camera. It features a 1.3MP high-resolution, high-sensitivity InGaAs imager with a new snapshot mode capability. The 1280JS camera is lightweight (less than 120 grams or 4 ounces without lens) and compact (less than 4.5 cubic inches or 74 cubic centimeters), allowing for easy integration into aerial, mobile and hand-held imaging systems. It provides real-time daylight to low-light imaging (including partial moonlight) in the SWIR with high sensitivity in the 0.9 to 1.7 µm spectrum for persistent surveillance, laser detection, and penetration through fog, dust, and smoke. Optional NIR/SWIR technology is available to extend the sensitivity of Sensors Unlimited cameras down to 0.7 μm, offering the advantage of both Near Infrared (NIR) and SWIR wavelength response.
The 1280JS High Resolution Snapshot SWIR Camera requires no cooling and employs onboard Automatic Gain Control (AGC) and built-in nonuniformity corrections (NUCs), allowing it to address the challenges of high-dynamic-range urban night imaging without blooming. Camera Link® digital output provides for plug-and-play video with 12-bit images for digital image processing or transmission and the camera has been tested to MIL-STD-810G for functional shock, vibration, thermal shock, storage temperature, altitude, humidity, and acceleration
