Goodrich to Develop Solutions for SWIR Imaging Sensors

The Air Force Research Laboratory, Materials and Manufacturing Directorate has selected Goodrich to design systems for its short wave infrared imaging sensors.

The Air Force Research Laboratory inked the contract with Goodrich as part of its Advanced Development of Protection Technologies (ADePT) program that includes the study of methods for SWIR detectors. The ISR Systems team of Goodrich will conduct the development work.

The SWIR technology is capable of sensing the reflected light at wavelengths that are invisible to the human eye, in wavelength bands between thermal and visible cameras. The Goodrich system is a lightweight, compact and low-power system as it is made from unique indium gallium arsenide materials. Its sophisticated circuitry enables it  to run without the need for cooling systems. While, competitive SWIR band imaging systems require bulky, high-power cooling systems.

The Goodrich ISR Systems team has been using the sophisticated indium gallium arsenide imaging technology for the design and development of SWIR and NIR systems and cameras for scientific, agricultural, military and industrial applications.

The Business Development Manager at Goodrich’s ISR Systems, David Dawes stated that through the ADePT program, the company will design techniques and materials to enhance the existence of targeting sensors for improved military applications.
