Sensor Solutions Products

Our thermal camera cores capture fast moving details in dynamic scenes with 60 Hz frame rates. BAE Systems’ Sensor Solutions business develops and manufactures low-cost visible and infrared imaging sensors for vision systems.
BAE Systems develops and manufactures low-cost visible, infrared, and X-ray imaging sensors for a wide variety of commercial and military applications including security and surveillance, firefighting, medical X-ray, driving aids, scientific, and military weapons systems.

Expanding upon the storied Fairchild Imaging legacy, we offer a wide range of imaging devices that provide our customers with top performance and key features for the most demanding applications. Our sensors enable imaging throughout the full spectrum from X-ray and visible wavelengths, to near infrared (NIR) and infrared (IR), all with excellent quantum efficiency. Our portfolio is suitable for a variety of applications, all of which have the common need for uncompromised image quality to enable highly differentiated high-performance cameras.

Key Sensor Systems Products

Athena1920 raises the bar for high-performance uncooled thermal imaging, and covers 9x the field-of-view of traditional VGA camera cores.

As a market leader in thermal imaging sensors, BAE Systems emphasizes speed to market to provide cutting-edge solutions to users.

sCMOS Sensors

Inventors of the breakthrough scientific CMOS (sCMOS) technology, we continue to push the limits of image sensor performance.

 

Technology

 

Our sensors target the most demanding imaging applications, and our R&D efforts are focused on developing the technologies that are continually advancing the state of the art in these high-performance cameras.

 

Low Light

No one makes sensors with lower read noise. Our sub-electron read noise sensors are pushing the limits of imaging in the lowest light conditions. Through a combination of advanced pixel engineering and innovative analog circuit design techniques, we are now in the realm of being able to detect single photons.

High Dynamic Range

A patented dual-gain architecture leverages the ultra-low read noise to capture low light levels (high-gain), while simultaneously capturing highlights (low-gain) in a large, full-well capacity pixel. The result is a market-leading sensor native dynamic range. This native high dynamic range (HDR) starting point can be extended further with our patented Ultra Dynamic Range (UDR) technique. UDR can extend dynamic range up to 120 dB with a single exposure while mitigating artifacts due to motion and LED flicker.

High Frame Rate

Our sensors are architected to achieve lightning speeds concurrently with high-resolution output. Amazingly, the high speed and high resolution are accomplished without compromising the sensors low read noise and high dynamic range.

Multispectral

We offer sensors capable of detection across a wide range of the electromagnetic spectrum. Our market-pioneering sCMOS sensors detect visible light with high quantum efficiency (QE), and recently achieved significant increases in near-infrared QE. At even longer wavelengths, we are a market leader in microbolometer detectors and associated thermal camera cores. We also have years of deep experience in developing and delivering X-ray sensors.
