SCD details new contracts

26th September 2019 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Semi Conductor Devices (SCD) has received a number of new contracts totaling $20 million from customers in North America, Europe and Israel, the company announced on 25 September.

The contracts will see the company’s High Operating Temperature (HOT) Mid-Wave Infra-Red detector integrated into surveillance and security systems for applications including border surveillance and critical infrastructure security.

The family of low HOT SWaP-C detectors based on 10μm and 15μm FPAs are designed to produce extremely high quality images. The HOT technology enables applications which require very low SWaP-C performance with demand for long operational hours on batteries such as for man-portable handheld IR systems and tactical surveillance payloads for small UAVs.

Deliveries on the contracts, received from four customers, have already begun.

Dan Slasky, SCD’s CEO, said: ‘One of the main vectors in our product line strategy is to provide optimal and advanced solutions for the expanding Low SWaP-C requirements.

‘The product line includes solutions for various detector and video engine types in different pixel pitches and detector formats. A recent example is the Sparrow video core which was launched at the end of 2018 and has generated significant customer interest with numerous orders received from customers in North America, Europe, and Israel. The Sparrow provides a truly unique SWaP performance with low cost.’
