Abstract

QmagiQ proposes to develop and deliver a small, lightweight, low-power 4-MEGAPIXEL (2Kx2K) multi-spectral infrared camera covering a broad spectral band from 1-14 microns.nbsp; A key feature is a broadband high-quantum-efficiency strained layer superlattice focal plane array (High-QE SLS FPA) with spectral filters deposited directly on the FPA ndash; a design that allows the camera to be very compact and reliable. The spectroscopic information provided by the filters will be useful in detecting and identifying a variety of targets at distance.The proposed camera will greatly improve ground resolution due to the high pixel count and small pixel pitch, allow more chemical analysis due to broader spectral coverage, and be smaller, lighter, and more reliable than the current state of the art which uses a 1-megapixel FPA with 3-12 micron spectral coverage and discrete attached filters.In addition to detecting, tracking and chemically analyzing fires, a drone/airplane equipped with such a camera can be used to detect and analyze industrial gas leaks and pollution with high ground resolution.
