SCD’s cooled and uncooled detectors as well as core engines are high-end, superior performance, robust and are optimal for all military applications.
Unique and advanced design enables 24/7 operation with long MTBF. Tens of thousands of SCD detectors, video cores, and laser diodes are designed, built and manufactured for deployment in demanding applications for defense applications, especially in the Air, Land, Sea, Missile and HLS domains, where environmental qualification is mandatory. SCD’s detectors and diode lasers are deployed in advanced Remote Weapon Stations, Thermal Weapon Sights, Hand-held cameras, Missile Seekers, Missile Warning Systems, Enhanced Vision Systems, Payloads, Laser Designators, Range Finders , and many other military systems.
Infrared imaging is also used in a wide variety of security applications such as Long Range Surveillance, Perimeter Security, Border and Coastal Security, Critical Infrastructure Protection, Fire Detection and more. SCD supplies a large number of high-performance cooled and uncooled detectors covering the SWIR, MWIR and LWIR spectrum that are suitable for all of these applications. Special design and attention enables 24/7 operation. These detectors, extensive electro-optical knowledge, professional support together with ability and readiness for product customizing allow for simple integration and optimal solutions.
SCD has developed a low-SWaP MWIR Video Core, the Sparrow, which has a 10μm pitch VGA FPA, is significantly smaller than common existing VGA solutions and enables the user to reduce the overall size and weight of the system optics, thereby lowering overall system SWaP.
