About UTC Aerospace Systems
Sensors Unlimited. Line Scan Cameras. Sensors Unlimited, Inc. is now SUI, part of UTC Aerospace Systems. SUI was acquired by Goodrich Corporation on November 1, 2005. In sixteen years, SUI has become the world’s leading manufacturer of indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) photodiodes, arrays and cameras for near-infrared (NIR) and shortwave infrared (SWIR) imaging applications. Originally founded in 1991 as an advanced research and development company, SUI quickly grew to become a major supplier of InGaAs technology, products, and shortwave IR imaging solutions. Now a member of the ISR Systems Division of Goodrich Corporation, the Sensors Unlimted, Inc. facility features an ISO 9001: 2000 certified manufacturing plant occupying over 20,000 square feet and includes Class 100 clean rooms,and a III-V foundry with an MOCVD epitaxial growth wafer fab. Products built on our proprietary InGaAs platform are SWIR cameras, 1- and 2- dimensional focal plane arrays (FPAs), 10 Gb/s avalanche photodiodes (APDs), plus SUI has the resources to custom design structures and devices for a variety of customer requirements. Current deployments include laser tracking for weapons and communication systems, covert and fixed site surveillance, ground and air UV payloads, gimbal sensor assemblies, night vision and free space communications. Other applications for InGaAs technologies and imaging systems include near-infrared spectroscopy, security and surveillance, linescan inspection, process control, laser beam profiling, microscopy, art inspection and astronomy. The Sensor Unlimited, Inc. management team has a combined total of over 75 years experience in the infrared detector industry, making SUI ready for any shortwave or near infrared imaging challenge. In addition, our highly experienced engineering staff consistently looks to push our technology to the next level, of whom forty-four percent hold an advanced degree. Along with employees, SUI's confidence is rooted in its intellectual property portfolio, which holds 10 patents in InGaAs technology.
