3D LADAR CAMERAS
Princeton Lightwave Geiger-mode avalanche photodiode (GmAPD) 3D LADAR cameras are based on a focal plane array (FPA) consisting of an InP/InGaAsP GmAPD detector array flip-chip bonded to a custom CMOS readout integrated circuit (ROIC). This single-photon imaging sensor is designed for three-dimensional laser radar imaging systems with time-of-flight information captured at every pixel in the array. A GaP microlens array is attached to the GmAPD array to provide high fill factor, and the hermetically sealed FPA housing has an integrated two-stage thermoelectric cooler to maintain appropriate operating temperatures.
The GmAPD camera is supplied as a fully integrated system with a high-performance personal computer supporting a CameraLink or other industry-standard data interface, RAID 0 storage, and comprehensive GUI-driven control software.
