Goodrich Corp.’s GA640C-15A shortwave infrared (SWIR) camera is said to be smaller, lighter, and use less power than other such cameras on the market. With a volume less than 1 in3, weight of 26 g without lens, and consumption of 1.5 W, the camera is suited for integration into handheld, helmet- or weapon-mounted surveillance devices, unmanned aircraft, and any imaging system for which size, weight, and power consumption must be minimal. It features 640 x 512 pixel resolution with a 15-μm pitch. The C-platform model operates from 0.9–1.7 μm spectral range; the optional near IR camera includes the range from 0.7–1.7 μm. Onboard automatic gain control enables hands-free operation.
