Lockheed Martin
: 25 August, 2008  (New Product)
Lockheed Martin has received an $8.9 million production order for 150 Integrated Dewar Cooler Assembly thermal cameras from Gyrocam Systems. This initial order, the first of 500 projected systems under the U.S. Army contract, was awarded to Lockheed Martin's Santa Barbara Focalplane (SBF) production operations.
Lockheed Martin's SBF cameras are designed into Gyrocam systems and will provide thermal capabilities to the U.S. Army's Vehicle Optics Sensor System for mine protected vehicles. The multi-sensor camera system offers powerful zoom, night vision and thermal capabilities, and is mounted on a telescoping mast that is gyro-stabilized for operations on the move.

'The incorporation of the SBF camera into the Gyrocam System will provide the Warfighter with the highest quality of thermal capability and sensitivity imaging available,' said Pat Sunderlin, Missiles and Fire Control director of Operations. 'Our fully digital infrared technology allows for outstanding developmental opportunities that can be further applied in this arena.'

Located in Santa Barbara County, CA, Lockheed Martin's SBF operation serves as an Infrared Center of Excellence. It is engaged in research, design, development and manufacture of state-of-the-art infrared detectors and sensor engines for programs such as the F-22 Raptor and F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.
