High Speed Focal Plane Array (FPA) for Vibrometer, Laser Radar (LADAR), and Coherent Optical Detection Sensor Applications
Aerius Photonics proposes to develop a high speed, high sensitivity focal plane array (FPA) assembly consisting of a low noise InGaAs photodiode array and a fast readout integrated circuit (ROIC). The FPA will be integrated into a laser vibrometer system and used for the detection of landmines and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). In Phase II of the program, Aerius will focus on the design, fabrication and characterization of a FPA demonstration vehicle that will address the technical risks that affect the implementation of a full array. Aerius will work with its industry and government partners to test the assembled FPA at individual test facilities characterizing its optical and electrical performance. Testing of the FPA will demonstrate the applicability of this concept to laser vibrometer applications. The developed technology has applications in military, medical, and civilian markets. The technology can be used to remotely detect a human"s vital signs, as well as provide stand-off analysis of suicide bombers, as well as buried object detection.
