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.”
