Raytheon to Build Army Focal Plane Array Tech - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Raytheon logo_EbizRaytheon's vision systems business unit will develop infrared sensor technologies for the U.S. Army's night vision and electronic sensors directorate, Military & Aerospace Electronics reported Friday.

John Keller writes scientists at Raytheon will work to research and build III-V infrared focal plane array systems under a two-year contract with the Army Contracting Command‘s Aberdeen Proving Ground-Belvoir division.

That research program follows on a previous infrared sensor technology contract and Raytheon will aim to apply data from that program to develop new infrared systems, according to the report.

The focal plane arrays will be designed for mid-wave infrared, long-wave infrared and LWIR/dual-band detection operations, reports Military & Aerospace Electronics.

Keller writes the Army intends for those technologies to help soldiers gain situational awareness, detect gunflashes, identify and track infrared, intercept missiles and produce hyperspectral images.
