CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- UTC Aerospace Systems introduces the newest high definition (HD) camera in its Sensors Unlimited MiniSWIR™ product line: the GA1280JSX. This shortwave infrared (SWIR) camera provides 1280x720 resolution for HD video capture; high-sensitivity for imaging in low light environments; and a light, compact, ruggedized design that allows for reliable use in both military and industrial applications. UTC Aerospace Systems is a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).
Sensors Unlimited brand SWIR cameras are field proven and easily integrated into both military and industrial systems. The GA1280JSX HD-SWIR camera is ideal for imaging systems requiring high definition SWIR imagery, light weight (the camera weighs less than 120g without a lens, which is about equivalent to 5 AA batteries), and non-optimal lighting operation (the camera functions in both daylight and low light environments, including passive imaging under moonlight). Examples of applications include passive or covert-active persistent surveillance, multi-laser spotting and tracking, imaging through atmospheric obscurants such as haze and smoke, hyperspectral imaging, and industrial product inspection.
