Quantum Imaging, will supply a high-definition Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) camera to Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems, valued at $13.5 million.
With its unique, on-chip image processing, Quantum's SWIR camera adds a critical new capability to a large number of tactical imaging applications
The new SWIR camera implementing a 1280x1024, 10μm imager format with on-chip image processing, delivers a critical new capability to many tactical imaging applications.
Quantum Imaging’s camera is based on an innovative sensor designed and manufactured by SemiConductor Devices (SCD), Quantum’s parent company.
The SWIR cameras will be applied by Raytheon to further enhance a family of products that provides detailed intelligence data from the visual and infrared spectrum, supporting US military, civilian and allied missions around the world.
Mark Fydenkevez, President and CEO of SCD USA, and Quantum Imaging remarked, “We are pleased to partner with Raytheon, integrating these technically-advanced sensors into Quantum Imaging’s innovative camera architectures, which will provide America’s warfighters with unmatched technical capabilities.”
Researchers at the University of Waterloo are developing a new technology, which they claim will help radar operators cut through heavy background noise and isolate objects —including stealth aircraft and missiles— with unparalleled accuracy. “In the Arctic, space weather such as geomagnetic storms and solar flares interfere with radar operation and make the effective identification of objects more challenging,” said Jonathan Baugh, a faculty member at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) and a professor in the Department of Chemistry who is leading the project with three other researchers at IQC and the Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology...

US firm Quantum3D has been selected to provide Image Generation technology as part of the first flight simulator being delivered to Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) in support of its new T-625 helicopter design. The simulator will feature Quantum3D's Independence IDX 8000 Series Image Generator (IG), which is Quantum3D's IG solution featuring its MANTIS scene generation software on a PC-based hardware platform, the company announced today
DARPAs Electronic-Photonic Heterogeneous Integration (E-PHI) program has successfully integrated billions of light-emitting dots on silicon to create an efficient silicon-based laser. The breakthrough, achieved by researchers working on the program at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), will enable the production of inexpensive and robust microsystems that exceed the performance capabilities of current technologies
