UTC Aerospace Systems launches high-res snapshot SWIR camera

UTC Aerospace Systems introduced its next generation Sensors Unlimited shortwave infrared digital video camera at AUVSI Unmanned Systems North America Exhibition in Las Vegas, Nev.

This high-resolution, indium gallium arsenide mil-rugged digital video camera features 30Hz full-frame rate and adds snapshot mode capability to the Sensors Unlimited high-definition SWIR product range.

The 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. Ideally suited to low-light imaging and covert surveillance requirements, the SWIR camera is able to capture images through smoke, fog and haze, which makes the camera suitable for integration into a variety of surveillance and reconnaissance systems.

Cooling is not required with the JS-series InGaAs SWIR camera. In addition, it features on-board, automatic gain control and real-time non-uniformity corrections that improve urban night imaging, such as capturing a dark scene that contains bright light sources.

The Sensors Unlimited model GA1280JS has been tested to MIL-STD-810G for functional shock, vibration, thermal shock, storage temperature, altitude, humidity and acceleration.

UTC Aerospace Systems designs, manufactures and services integrated systems and components for the aerospace and defense industries. UTC Aerospace Systems supports a global customer base with significant worldwide manufacturing and customer service facilities.
