SWIR Area Cameras See Improvements In Electron Read Noise
This year at Optics and Photonics, Doug Malchow with UTC Aerospace Systems gives us a perspective of how their SWIR area cameras fit with each other, as well as the progression of their improvements in electron read noise, resolution, and more. We also get to see an demonstration of a SWIR camera imaging through paint.
New Compact SWIR Camera Provides High Quality Imaging In All Lighting Conditions
Tara Martin introduces us to UTC Aerospace’s new SU640CSX SWIR camera. The camera is ideal for low-light level imaging, covert surveillance, multi-laser spotting and tracking, and imaging through atmospheric obscurants. Because of its small size, it can be easily integrated into UASs, handheld, and solider-mounted systems.
Fine Resolution, Better Sensitivity, And SWIR Imaging Make For Deeper OCT Imaging
Doug Malchow of UTC Aerospace gives us an overview of the GL2048L InGaAs Linescan Camera at Photonics West 2013.
Cameras For Applications In Solar, Military, Agricultural Markets, And More
Don Pancza, account manager with Goodrich ISR Systems/UTC Aerospace discusses his company’s recent merger, and reviews their products on display at the show.
SWIR Camera For Applications Requiring Small Size, Weight, And Power (SWaP) Demoed At SPIE DSS
Bob Jones, business development manager at Sensors Unlimited - Goodrich ISR Systems, shows the GA640C-15 SWIR camera. This camera is ideal for applications involving low-light-level imaging, covert surveillance, multi-laser spotting and tracking, imaging through atmospheric obscurants, integration into unmanned UASs, and handheld and soldier-mounted systems where small size, weight, and power (SWaP) are critical.
Live From Photonics West 2012: New 1.3-Megapixel High-Resolution InGaAs SWIR Camera
Doug Malchow of Sensors Unlimited - Goodrich ISR Systems demonstrates several new products, including the 1.3-megapixel GA1280J high-resolution InGaAs SWIR camera, a high-sensitivity, 1280 x 1024 pixel, 15-µm pitch, military-hardened SWIR camera (0.7 to 1.7 µm). It weighs less than 125 g and has a total volume of less than 4.3 cubic inches
Live From SPIE Optics + Photonics 2011: Sensors Unlimited Details Their Imaging Capabilities
Don Pancza, Sales Account Manager at Sensors Unlimited, shows a variety of cameras and discusses their applications, which include machine vision; military, homeland security, and defense; and solar inspection. With their InGaAs technology, Sensors Unlimited basically covers from .9 to 1.7 microns, beyond where visible, traditional, silicon CCD imagery falls off.
Live From DSS 2011: New Mil-Rugged InGaAs SWIR Camera Introduced
In this video, Photonics Online gets introduced to the new GA-1280J-15A InGaAs SWIR digital video camera by Martin Ettenberg, Ph.D., director of business development for Goodrich ISR Systems. Launched at SPIE DSS2011, the GA-1280J-15A is 1280 x 1024 pixel, 15 um pitch, 60 Hz shortwave infrared camera.
SWIR Video Scanning of Solar Cell Panel
SWIR video scanning over the length of a commercial 36 cell panel while forward biased with 18 V.The SWIR camera sweeps across a panel composed of 3 rows of 12 cells, with the panel nominally rated as 18 V output.
