Northrop Grumman selects Goodrich SWIR technology for US Army's boresight monitoring camera

Northrop Grumman’s Laser Systems business unit has selected Goodrich Corp of Charlotte, NC, USA to design and manufacture a boresight monitoring camera subsystem to track and align lasers at multiple wavelengths on the Multi-Function Laser (MFL) for the US Army’s Future Combat Systems program (which consists of a family of manned and unmanned air and ground systems linked via a network).

Goodrich’s SUI team (formerly Sensors Unlimited Inc), based in Princeton, NJ, USA, will modify, combine and enhance the functionality of two of its commercially available InGaAs-based 320 x 256 focal plane array shortwave infrared (SWIR) cameras, resulting in a single unit that meets the Army's requirements .

“By leveraging our proprietary technology, the new cameras will be smaller, will require less power and will offer superior operational capabilities over currently available SWIR cameras,” reckons Dr Marshall Cohen, VP and general manager of Goodrich’s SUI team.
