A breakthrough in VIS-SWIR imaging.
The Mojave 04A-E camera –powered by SCD Swift sensor platform–is a breakthrough in VIS-SWIR imaging, with a low SWaP architecture and capabilities that enable imaging and targeting in harsh environments from -40°C to 85°C. The VGA format camera uses a standard definition 640×512 format InGaAs detector with a 10μm pixel pitch, designed on SCD’s high volume manufacturing platform. Mojave features high-sensitivity and wide dynamic range. It provides real-time imaging with response across the Near Infrared (NIR) through SWIR waveband for passive and active (laser assisted) operation. Built-in Automatic Gain Control (AGC), image enhancement, and Non-Uniformity Correction (NUC) allow for seamless system integration and ease-of-use. Data is provided through either a parallel data connector or a modular Camera Link attachment. Control is accomplished via a serial port interface. The camera also provides the ability to detect and track multiple laser spots in the camera field of view and identify the associated pulse repetition frequency (PRF). Noise and image stability are optimized through proprietary thermal stabilization techniques. The thermal design of the camera ensures operation up to 85°C temperatures and incorporates an option for TEC-less operation. Full characterization data sets including mean- variance and noise equivalent irradiance plots are provided with each camera.
