Surface Optics to build IR imaging spectral radiometer for Army

The US Army Armament Research, Development, and Engineering Center (ARDEC, Picatinny Arsenal, NJ) awarded Surface Optics Inc. (San Diego, CA) a Phase II SBIR contract for development of a real-time imaging infrared (IR) radiometer. Surface Optics currently produces a visible band imaging radiometer that provides real-time full spectral information for each pixel in a 256 ¥ 192-pixel scene. The two-year contract is for approximately $600,000 and covers production of an instrument that operat

Surface Optics currently produces a visible band imaging radiometer that provides real-time full spectral information for each pixel in a 256 ¥ 192-pixel scene. The two-year contract is for approximately $600,000 and covers production of an instrument that operates in the IR region of the spectrum, with a spectral filtering software algorithm built into the hardware. This modified version of the Surface Optics visible imaging radiometer will be used for nondestructive inspection.
