Quantum Imaging, a subsidiary of Israel-based infrared sensing and imaging company Semi Conductor Devices (SCD), has finalised a deal to supply Raytheon with short-wave infrared (SWIR) cameras and optical sensor packages for use on the company’s product line of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) platforms. The USD13.5 million deal, announced by Quantum Imaging on 25 March, will finance the procurement of SCD’s Cardinal 1280 SWIR platform for integration on ISR products developed under Raytheon’s Space and Airborne Systems directorate. All work on that system and the Cardinal 1280 platforms under contract to Raytheon and the US Department of Defense (DoD) will continue to be conducted inside the United States, at Quantum Imaging’s headquarters in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
