CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UTC Aerospace Systems, will
release its next generation Sensors Unlimited high resolution, snapshot
shortwave infrared (SWIR) camera at the SPIE Defense Security & Sensing
Exhibition, April 29 – May 2, 2013, at the Baltimore Convention Center,
Baltimore, Md. UTC Aerospace Systems is a unit of United Technologies Corp.

On display at booth 1217, this high sensitivity, mil-rugged Indium Gallium
Arsenide (InGaAs) SWIR camera is the highest resolution VGA SWIR camera on the
market, driven by a 640x512 pixel SWIR image sensor with 12.5micron pixel
pitch. It is designed for camera users that are looking for a more affordable
high performance SWIR imager, with small SWaP (size, weight, and power), and
daylight to low-light imaging capability.

The Sensors Unlimited 640-MicroSWIR™ camera performance, reliability, and SWaP
make it ideal for use in a variety of industrial and military systems; for a
range of applications including industrial process monitoring, enhanced
vision, persistent surveillance, and laser spot tracking. The camera weighs
less than 55 grams, measures 1.25in x 1.25in x 1.25in., uses less than 2 W of
power at 20 degreesCelsius, and operates from -40 to 70 degrees Celsius case
temperatures. It includes an industry standard C-mount lens interface on a
2/3" camera format, which allows users to select a myriad of lens options.
Also, the MicroSWIR™ camera's low noise imaging capability (35e- total noise),
on-board automatic gain control (AGC), non-uniformity corrections (NUCs), and
dynamic range enhancements provide optimized imagery in a wide variety of
lighting conditions. The 640-MicroSWIR™ was built for rugged operation, and
includes the assurance of MIL-STD-810G environmental testing and CE
certification. Technical teams will be on hand throughout the show for expert
demonstrations and to answer questions on all Sensors Unlimited products
