Infrared Detectors & Cameras
SLX-SuperHawk is a Medium Wave Infra-Red (MWIR) thermal imaging camera employing the latest focal plane array technology to meet long-range surveillance and target identification requirements. It provides a wider Field of View (FoV) for greater Situational Awareness, whilst delivering a narrower IFoV for longer range target identification and engagement.
The Saphira detector is designed for high speed infrared applications and is the result of a three year research and development programme alongside the European Southern Observatory on sensors for astronomical instruments. It delivers world leading photon sensitivity of <1 photon rms with Fowler sampling and high speed non-destructive readout (>10K frame/s).
The Sprint Module uses a 2-Dimensional 384 x 384 pixel Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT) Focal Plane Array detector which offers a broad band spectral response from 2.0μm to 12.0μm and beyond, achieved through Land and Naval Defence Electronics Division' unrivalled MCT material growth capability.
The SuperHawk infrared detector is a 1280 x 1024 array of pixels on an 8μm pitch, manufactured using a Metal Organic Vapour Phase Epitaxy (MOVPE) process with Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT) detector material grown on low cost substrates. The SuperHawk detector offers four times as many pixels in the same active image area as conventional 640 x 512 16μm pitch products. In addition, the SuperHawk offers a 1280 x 720 mode of operation, providing...
Tilde is a thermal imager designed for high sensitivity, long-range target detection and engagement.
Tilde-S is a thermal imager operating in the LWIR spectral band with a staring FPA 640 x 512 Land and Naval Defence Electronics Division detector. It has been designed and qualified to work in the harshest environments (temperature, vibration) and is self-contained in a rugged, sealed enclosure.
The WREN detector is a high performance single element DLATGS pyroelectric infrared detector, designed for use in infrared microscopy and spectroscopy applictions. The detector has been developed to replace conventional cooled single element technologies. It operates at ambient temperature to offer the user the benefit of a broad band IR response (0.1 to >100µm) without the inconvenience or cost of maintaining a cooling system.
