[Avionics Today 09-22-2014] UTC Aerospace has opened a new facility in Princeton, N.J., for its Sensors Unlimited business, which develops innovative sensing and imaging solutions in Shortwave Infrared (SWIR) technology. The more than 90,000 square foot facility houses a new wafer fabrication area, along with packaging, assembly and test labs.
The facility focuses on the research and development of SWIR cameras, which create visibility beyond what the naked eye can see. The technology allows users to see in daylight and low light, through dust, haze and smoke, especially useful in military and law enforcement applications.
Previously located at a smaller site in Princeton, the new site now accommodates more than one hundred employees, including 50 engineers.
