 Press Releases

  • Hudson, NH; January 2, 2015.   In response to continued rapid growth AIRS announced today an expansion of its staff and laboratories at its facilities in Hudson, New Hampshire.  AIRS has increased its sensor fabrication and high vacuum dewar processing capacity by 150% in response to growing customer demand for AIRS’ products.  The expansion allows for additional production capabilities for AIRS infrared focal plane array (IRFPA) based integrated dewar cooler assemblies (IDCA) and infrared imaging modules.  Current expansion activity will be completed in February.

    According to Dan Manitakos, President of AIRS, “We have committed facility and capital investments due to our customers’ positive experience with our infrared imaging products.   Many of our initial product insertions have successfully evolved to LRIP and full production and our facility and team is growing to support the expanding breadth and depth of our product lines.  Demand had grown rapidly for AIRS high performance SWIR, MWIR and LWIR sensors in both hyperspectral and ISR missions and we are responding with increased throughput and capability.  We continue to rapidly develop capabilities necessary to support a wide range of cooled infrared imaging and sensing applications.”

     About AIRS (Hudson, NH) - AIRS offers high performance cooled infrared imaging solutions, including IDCAs, modules and cameras.  State of the art technologies, designs, and vertically integrated manufacturing allow AIRS to provide system integrators and instrumentation manufacturers customized, mission-critical imaging capability.  AIRS’ strengths are providing custom solutions for customers with unique, challenging and complex thermal imaging needs.  The team consists of some of the most experienced technologists in the infrared industry.​

  • Hudson, NH; April 10, 2015.  AIRS announced today the launch of the mini-Nyx- S 640 SWIR Integrated Dewar Cooler Assembly (IDCA).  The mini-Nyx-S 640 IDCA is integrated with a high performance 640 x 512 short wave infrared (SWIR) IRFPA.  The mini-Nyx-S 640 is a further extension to AIRS’ SWIR product line, joining the existing 384 x 288 format IRFPA product.  The mini-Nyx-S is uniquely designed by AIRS to address applications such as hyperspectral imaging, commercial/scientific OEM applications, gimbal systems, man portable systems, and ISR.  

    Optimized for hyperspectral and imaging applications, the mini-Nyx–S provides extended wavelength capability (to 2.5um) and higher quantum efficiency and signal to noise (S/N) than conventional SWIR sensor technologies by utilizing a state of the art high operating temperature (HOT) mercury cadmium telluride (MCT) IRFPA.  HOT MCT technology allows for high reliability coupled with inherent high performance supporting the most critical SWIR applications.  The HOT technology additionally allows the mini-Nyx-S excellent low power, long life performance similar to conventional thermoelectrically cooled devices.

    AIRS uniquely supports its customers by specifically configuring the optical interface with order blocking filters, cold filters and other optical subassemblies within the IDCA.  This can greatly simplify the optical design and packaging of customers systems. Further, the mini-Nyx-S can be enhanced by AIRS’ Smart IDCA electronics option which provides front end signal processing such as A/D conversion and Camera Link video output.  The Smart IDCA option allows system and instrument designers to build their system on a compact, high performance IR module without the need for complex, expensive integration.

    Dan Manitakos, President of AIRS, noted; “The mini-Nyx-S 640 is an exciting advancement and addition to AIRS’ broad capabilities. Our SWIR solutions have been embraced by leaders in hyperspectral sensing.  We expect the 640 format version will be rapidly incorporated into new systems.  The mini-Nyx-S joins AIRS’ growing product lines that consists of large format and HD IRFPA based solutions spanning the SWIR, MWIR and LWIR spectrum”
