Abstract:

An advanced sensor was developed and tested under this effort. This sensor uses an EMCCD with an active focal plane of 658 by 496 pixels, in conjunction with a controllable iris and wide field of view lens to provide situation awareness over full daylight to extreme dark conditions. The interface to the sensor is over GigE, allowing high data rate signal transmission. Intensive mechanical design was applied to advance the operating conditions of the sensor to be compliant with typical hardened military specifications. A technique was developed and implemented to calibrate the sensor response over temperature for all ambient lighting conditions. This sensor is suited to a variety of military and commercial surveillance and situational awareness applications.
