AUGUST 21, 2007--The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Microsystems Technology Office (MTO) has selected Goodrich Corporation for the continued development of indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs), visible, and short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) focal-plane arrays for use in passive, night-vision imaging systems. Says Edward Hart, vice president and general manager of Goodrich's SUI team, "Our team has successfully completed the first phase of this contract, and we now look forward to taking the technology to the next level. We welcome the opportunity to carry on this important initiative with DARPA and its innovative MTO group. The focus of this next phase of development will be to raise the resolution of the camera we developed in the first phase and make the imager more sensitive, allowing for better night-vision capabilities."

The Goodrich SUI team, based in Princeton, NJ, USA, pioneered the design and production of SWIR cameras and systems utilizing advanced InGaAs imaging technology for industrial, commercial, military, agricultural, and scientific markets.
