Research Institution
Today, dismounted squad-level units do not have the capability to hand off targets during the day and at night, covertly and rapidly, and between squad members and supporting vehicles. To address this need, a 12.5-um-pixel-pitch passive readout integrated circuit (ROIC) with asynchronous active laser-spot tracking designed for integration with InGaAs photodiode short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) focal-plane arrays (FPAs) is being developed. The ROIC will combine the functionality of passive SWIR imaging, range-gated imaging, laser-spot tracking of pulse-interval measurement, and laser ranging, in a single, compact imager. In Phase II, the ROIC will be designed, fabricated, and tested. Then, it will be integrated with an InGaAs detector array and its performance will be demonstrated.
