Inframetrics (N.

The team, which includes Honeywell Inc. (Minneapolis, MN) and Rockwell International (Anaheim, CA), will develop, manufacture, and sell a series of advanced industrial and military infrared sensors based on uncooled focal-plane-array microbolometer silicon detectors. The ULTRA team plans to reduce the costs of infrared radiometric and imaging sensors by a factor of eight. According to Inframetrics president Jay Teich, successful commercialization of this technology could create $350 million in business and 6000 skilled domestic jobs within five years.
