IMVEurope, Photonics: Prinston Infrared Technologies announces its first InGaAs SWIR camera to fall under the no ITAR restrictions. The 1280SciCam, features a 1,280 x 1,024-pixel image sensor on a 12µm pitch, having long exposure times, low read noise, 14-bit digital output, and full frame rates up to 95Hz. The camera is designed for advanced scientific and astronomy applications, and is now classified by the Export Administration Regulations as EAR 6A003.b.4.a for export.

The US government’s export control has been going through a process of reform, which began in 2009 as part of the Obama Administration's Export Control Reform (ECR) initiative. The technology from Princeton Infrared no longer falls under ITAR control, which is equipment specially designed or modified for military use, but now falls under EAR. This, in theory, makes it easier to export the technology outside the USA.

Bob Struthers, sales director at Princeton Infrared Technologies, says: ‘Our 1280SciCam has already generated sales and applications with leading research entities overseas. An EAR export classification will propel our ability to serve these customers promptly and efficiently. This will be very valuable to their upcoming projects and equally beneficial to the growth of our young company.

IMVEurope: A year ago, Xenics SWIR cameras have been granted Commodity Jurisdiction (CJ) approval. This new CJ means that all SWIR cameras supplied by Xenics are now ITAR-free in the US.
