The FluxData FD-3SWIR camera offers three InGaAs sensors fitted with customer specified optical filters to simultaneously capture sub-pixel aligned video through a single aperture lens. FluxData has chosen Goodrich’s Sensors Unlimited , the industry leader in SWIR sensors, as a partner in this product.  The Goodrich SUI C-Platform camera features 640 x 512 pixel resolution with a 15-micron pitch. The Camera Link® digital output offers plug-and play connectivity, 12-bit imagery for viewing, digital processing and/or transmission. The uncooled SWIR detector images in real-time video (30Hz). It operates without temperature stabilization using non-uniformity corrections (NUC) parameterized over temperatures. It also provides on-board automatic gain control (AGC). 

Goodrich’s SWIR C-platform model operates from 0.9 to 1.7 micron spectral range; the optional near infra-red (NIR) camera model extends the spectral response to include the range from 0.7 to 1.7 microns. The camera operates in a wide temperature range from -35 degrees C to +71 degrees C. The FD-3SWIR has a total power consumption of 4.5W.

The flexibility of FluxData’s multi-sensor system along with the small size of the C-platform allows for a multitude of new spectral and polarimetric configurations for various applications, con-ops and payloads.    

Examples include:

3xSWIR (FD-3SWIR) : Single lens, simultaneous synchronized video capture of any three discrete spectral wavelength bands between 700-1700nm using three InGaAs sensors.

Visible+NIR+SWIR (FD-VNS):  Single lens, simultaneous synchronized video capture of mono or RGB Visible (400-700nm), Near Infrared (700-1000nm) and Short Wave Infrared (900-1700nm) using two CCDs and one InGaAs sensor.

Visible+2xSWIR (FD-V2SWIR): Single lens, simultaneous synchronized video capture of mono or RGB Visible, and any two SWIR wavelengths (700-1700nm).

Polar-SWIR (FD-PolSWIR):  Single lens, simultaneous synchronized video at 0/45/90 or 0/60/120 degree linear polarization configurations.

Custom:  Any combination of CCD or InGaAs sensor, with any spectral wavelength filter or linear polarizer.
