Sensors Unlimited Inc., a provider of solutions based on InGaAs technology, has received a U.S. Air Force (U.S.A.F.) contract for the first phase of a 33-month program.

According to the terms of the agreement, Sensors Unlimited will develop a high frame rate, high bandwidth, low noise, focal plane array and camera which will be used for active tracking, wave front sensing, laser ranging, imaging, and scoring. The Department of Defense Missile Defense Agency is providing the funding under a contract managed by the Air Force.

"For the first time, staring and ranging imaging will be possible with a single camera," said Dr. Marshall Cohen, president of Sensors Unlimited. "This pioneering, dual-mode sensor/camera that we have proposed is made possible by Sensors Unlimited's patented technology that allows low noise, high sensitivity PIN photodiodes and high speed, high gain avalanche photodiodes to be fabricated within each pixel of the focal plane array. Despite sharing space within the pixel, each photodiode exhibits full optical fill factor."
